Daring Foods recently announced its new 2022 mission to launch a healthier and more realistic alternative to chicken. Newton is right alongside them, supporting the goal of creating more accessible, healthy options.

Cam Newton said, “I’ve played more years in the league than I have left and am looking to build relationships, make investments, and grow as a person so that when I retire, I can continue learning and make an impact. My privilege has taught me in my adult life the importance of a healthy diet. Being a Black man who grew up in the South, fried chicken was a staple in most diets. It was inexpensive and delicious; while not the healthiest option, we sometimes even had it twice a day. Ross dared to dream and shake up a multibillion-dollar industry. Something I hope to accomplish with Daring is to teach the Atlanta community and others the power of plant-based eating. Forming a healthy diet doesn’t need to be expensive and can have the same taste, texture, and feel as real chicken without the harmful results to our body, environment, and the chickens.”

Daring Foods found much success in 2021 and is entering the new year with a variety of public figure supporters. One of those supporters was fencer, Miles Chamley-Watson, who was featured in a recent Daring Foods film. He said, “I am honored to partner with Daring on this initiative and to help bring attention to pioneers creating change in their communities. What inspires me about working with Daring is that we have the exact same mindset and morals. We want to do more than disrupt our respective spaces – we want to change them completely. It’s the absolute perfect match, and this is just the beginning.”
