junior eaters society

The Sporkful Junior Eaters Society is a loose collective of promising young people around the world who are passionate about finding new and better ways to eat. Membership is free. All members are presidents. (It's never too early to start accumulating extracurriculars for that college application.)


To join, simply send us some photographic evidence of your child's passion for eating and/or The Sporkful. It can also be a photo of a drawing. Include your name, your child's name and age, and your home town. We'll send your child a certificate, signed by Dan, declaring him/her a President of The Sporkful Junior Eaters Society. Join now!
