November is American Diabetes Month and in order to raise money to support its America Gets Cooking to Stop Diabetes campaign, the American Diabetes Association has partnered with several companies offering great products you might already be using.
For this year’s awareness campaign, the ADA is emphasizing the importance of better cooking (and eating!) on your overall health, not to mention on the prevention and management of diabetes. On a special website dedicated to the campaign, the ADA will share healthy recipe ideas as well as tips for getting started on a more active lifestyle.
If you want to be a part of improved diabetes awareness in the U.S., shopping with any one of these vendors will earn an automatic donation to the ADA’s campaign! Descriptions and partnership details below. For a full list of companies offering support to the ADA campaign, click here.
