CHICAGO, September 14, 2023 — 1WorldSync®, the technology company providing the world’s leading brands with critical product information to power the supply chain and help consumers make purchasing decisions in-store and online, has partnered with Life Time Foundation as it helps school nutrition professionals procure healthy foods for students by streamlining product data collection and accuracy.
Life Time Foundation, a 501(c)(3) nonprofit created by Life Time (NYSE: LTH), enlisted 1WorldSync to support the launch of Green Onion – a free online tool that helps school nutrition professionals, purchasing cooperatives and food distributors analyze their K-12 food products for ingredients from the Ingredient Guide for Better School Food Purchasing, a science-based guide that allows school nutrition professionals to identify ingredients to avoid and limit. Green Onion also offers ideas for more nutritious product alternatives and a personalized dashboard to track progress.
“A key focus of Life Time Foundation is to ensure all students have access to healthy meals and we are thrilled that 1WorldSync can support this all-important work in helping kids develop lifelong healthy eating habits,” said Steve Sivitter, CEO of 1WorldSync. “This partnership leverages 1WorldSync’s expertise in accurate, validated product content to elevate Green Onion’s mission: Providing schools with complete, comprehensive nutrition data about the food served in their cafeterias to make more informed food procurement decisions.”
“We want all children to live healthier, happier lives and that starts with the food they eat,” said Megan Flynn, MPH, RD Life Time Foundation Nutrition Program Manager. “That’s why we are proud to collaborate with 1WorldSync to support all school food professionals in their efforts to eliminate ultra-processed foods and refine their menus for the health and wellbeing of the children they serve.”
1WorldSync’s Global Data Synchronization Network (GDSN) solution, the world’s largest data pool of its type, simplifies the entry of accurate, up-to-date food product information into Green Onion. This process facilitates the distribution of relevant, reliable product information to school nutrition professionals nationwide.
K-12 manufacturers are encouraged to share product information via the GDSN and can have an account in Green Onion to see how their products are rated. Without the connection directly from the manufacturer, Green Onion could have out-of-date product information.
