MegaFans, the world's first esports gaming platform, bridging Web2 and Web3, announces the release and launch of their first, initial non-fungible token offering (INO) with pre-mint orders opening on March 15, which will feature a new art collection themed after the esports characters called Gamer Girlz, that will earn in-game currency through a smart contract, from esports tournament player entries. The company also released a new website and revamped social media channels on Twitter and Discord to announce the INO and pre-mint orders. 

The new and improved website, Megafans.io, will feature information regarding the company's upcoming initial non-fungible token (NFT) offering, scheduled to open for pre-minting on March 15, this year. People will be able to see sample previews of the artwork, navigate MegaFans social media channels, learn about the unique utility and functions offered by the NFT collection, and eventually be able to stake and trade the NFTs for rewards on the website, including cryptocurrencies, merchandise, events and tournament entries and more.

The NFT collection features 5,000 manga-style art pieces, representing Gamer Girlz characters as profile pictures (AKA picture for proof or PFPs) from their multi-platform esports space called the MegaFans MegaVerse. The NFTs have a unique, smart contract utility that automatically earns the owners in-game currency called MFANS, based on a percentage of the rake from entries into their play-to-win esports tournaments. More information can be found at the MegaFans website (https://megafans.io).

Chef Ann Foundation Signs a Cooperative Agreement With the USDA to Help Create a More Resilient, Equitable, and Nutritious School Food System

Part of USDA's Healthy Meals Incentives, these sub-grants are designed to increase K-12 schools' procurement of local, higher-quality food items and scratch cooking

Chef Ann Foundation (CAF) has signed a cooperative agreement with the USDA's Food and Nutrition Service (FNS) as part of the Healthy Meals Incentives Initiative.  An allocation of $7.8 million is provided to CAF as part of The School Food System Transformation Challenge. These funds will be used to build a sub-grant program to incentivize innovative partnerships between school districts, food producers, suppliers, distributors, and community partners to strengthen the availability and access to nutritious food products in the K-12 school food. 

"The pandemic shed light on the cracks in our food system, and school food teams have been burdened with supply chain issues. We need to help our schools and their regional food communities work together to empower local food production and distribution," said Mara Fleishman, CEO of Chef Ann Foundation.

In partnership with USDA FNS, CAF partnered with Gretchen Swanson Center for NutritionKitchen Sync Strategies, and the National Farm to School Network. These partners will ensure that the sub-grants will increase the offering of healthier food products in the K-12 school food marketplace; leverage innovative partnerships between School Food Authorities (SFA) and key stakeholders in their local food systems; expand SFA procurement capacity at the local and regional levels; and increase market opportunities for local growers and producers. The sub-grants will be developed with an eye towards cultivating equity, nourishing students, fostering a resilient supply chain, and creating scalable and sustainable change for SFAs across the country.

"Procurement, in particular, remains one of the most complex processes within school food service departments. SFAs are required to navigate sourcing ingredients that fulfill the mission of serving fresh, local foods while working within limited budgets, under-resourced producers, and strained supply chains," says Elliott Smith, co-founder of Kitchen Sync Strategies.

In order to effectively meet current standards, in addition to upcoming changes that align with the USDA Dietary Guidelines, school districts must be equipped with the network and resources necessary to achieve such requirements. Realistically, no SFA or individual business is capable of accomplishing such a complex universal goal without multiple strategic partnerships with other organizations, businesses, and agencies in their food economy. The sub-grants support the development of the hard and soft infrastructures needed to successfully increase access to nutritious and appealing foods for kids.

"USDA is taking a holistic approach to supporting school meal programs, which includes strengthening the food supply chain that supports them," said Stacy Dean, deputy under secretary for Food, Nutrition, and Consumer Services. "We're hopeful that these grants will accelerate and expand innovation in the school food marketplace, so that schools - and ultimately our children - have better access to healthier food products."

These initiatives are part of the Biden-Harris Administration's National Strategy on Hunger, Nutrition, and Health. The National Strategy provides a roadmap of actions the federal government will take to end hunger and reduce diet-related diseases by 2030 - all while reducing disparities. The National Strategy was released in conjunction with the first White House Conference on Hunger, Nutrition, and Health in over 50 years, hosted by President Biden in September 2022.

FNS also provides science-based nutrition recommendations through the co-development of the Dietary Guidelines for Americans.
