myFoodDays started life in 2003 as a one-school-one-page website project for Woodland Elementary School to alleviate the pressure on the PTO Food Day chairs.
This pressure was preventing the Food Days program from running - the supply of volunteers was drying up as the workload and time commitments escalated and of course, as a result, the money raised was diminishing.
Over the last ten years myFoodDays has grown and adapted, adding features and tools to help schools and PTO/A's make the best out of their fundraising efforts.
On the right is how we used to look in 2003.

Pamela and Michael, After School
As you can imagine both Pamela and Michael are proponents of organic low-impact living and support local farmers with annual donations and help with fundraising. After school though, they're serious 'Greeenies' devoting a lot of our time to writing about and promoting the adoption of electric vehicles. Something of a passion, they organize meetings and events throughout the year for local New Jersey residents.
They're both President and Vice President of the New Jersey Chapter of the
Electric Auto Association,
and Michael is Vice President of the national, not-for-profit, action group
Having decided to "walk-the-walk" in 2010, Pamela & Michael said goodbye to their last gasoline-burning cars and moved their family over to an all-electric zero-emmision future.
Today their home fleet is all electric and their pro-ev antics have been featured on TV shows, news sites, blogs and podcasts as well as being featured by automakers Tesla Motors and BMW.
