Our Give a Bit Program & Ambassadors
We really Give a (sh)Bit here at Eat For You.
About you, about your families and about the health of future generations. In fact we care about this so much, that we never EVER compromise on what’s important. In honor of this - and to show you how powerful your choices can be in changing someone's life - we are thrilled to announce our Give a Bit Ambassador Program. ⠀
Here's how it works. ⠀⠀
- We've teamed up with some superstar Australians who love our food and share our values. ⠀
- These legends have been armed with a special discount code for you to use when you buy from us. ⠀
- The more food you buy using this code, the more our Ambassadors can 'pay it forward' to local community organisations who need our support.
- For every box of bars purchased, 1 bar is donated. It's that simple.
You can now follow the journey of how your food is changing lives, one donation at a time.⠀
Following her debut as an 18-year-old for the Australian Diamonds netball team, Bianca quickly established a name for herself as one of the toughest defenders in the sport. During her time on the netball court, Bianca endured some tough times but also enjoyed great success; winning both gold and silver medals at the Commonwealth Games, a World Championship Gold alongside six premierships with Melbourne Phoenix/Vixens. Since her retirement from the sport in 2015, Bianca has continued to focus on her passions - educating and empowering leadership skills within individuals and teams, promoting women's sport, and using her positive voice for good across various media channels.
This is where her role as one of our Give a Bit Ambassadors really takes flight.
Bianca hosts Women's Footy (ch.9), commentates Super Netball (ch.9), a regular panellist on Offsiders (ABC), presenter for House Of Wellness (Ch. 7) and across multiple podcasts and digital shows.
Her passion and advocacy for empowering women and girls led her to write her first book, Game On which expanded into the online mentor program, The Ignition Project. This personal project seeks to empower women to identify their passion, understand self-leadership and enable them to get the best out of themselves – across all aspects of life.

Jess’s passion for running was ignited as a child in her hometown of Naracoorte in South Australia’s south east. Becoming an Olympian was a childhood dream and it was Jess's two siblings, Abbie and Jack, who inspired her to chase this goal in her early twenties.
Her rise in Australian distance running started with victories in Adelaide’s City Bay Fun Run, Australian Cross Country Championships, the Melbourne Half Marathon and Sydney’s iconic City2Surf. These road and cross-country races built a strong foundation for her brave debut at the Marathon distance in Nagoya Japan, March 2012.
Jess’s performance in Japan was the fastest ever debut Marathon by an Australian woman. Stopping the clock at 2.31.02, almost a full minute under the A-Qualifying standard, Jess secured her spot on the Australian Olympic team. Jess ran her second ever Marathon at the 2012 London Olympic Games clocking an impressive 2.31.17, to cross the line in 39th place.
Jess then had a standout performance at the 2014 Glasgow Commonwealth Games. Continuing Australia’s proud record in the women’s Marathon, Jess surged home to claim the bronze medal, finishing behind two experienced Kenyan runners. In 2016 Jess placed 21st in the Rio Olympics Marathon.
Jess believes that injury challenges in 2014 and 2016 helped her to train smarter and become a more resilient athlete. She was able to raise the bar in 2017 by setting a new PB of 2:27:01 in the 2017 London Marathon and finished 9th at the 2017 IAAF World Championships in London; the highest ever place by an Australian female in a World Championship Marathon. In one of her toughest but most satisfying Marathons to date, Jess won her second consecutive Commonwealth Games Bronze medal at the 2018 Commonwealth Games on the Gold Coast. She went on to place second at the Gold Coast Marathon 10 weeks later and set a new personal best of 2h 25m 59s at the Scotiabank Toronto Waterfront Marathon in October of 2018.
In November 2019 Jess and her husband Dylan welcomed their first child, Billy, into the world and like all our amazing working Mums out there, she shares her sporting career with her role as a parent. Off the training track, she works part-time as a Physiotherapist, where she is particularly interested in biomechanics, training load and functional movement.
Jess lives and breathes a healthy, wholesome lifestyle and so she is the perfect choice to represent Eat for You through our Give a Bit Ambassador movement.

Chief and Founder of Witsup - a multimedia platform dedicated to women in triathlon and sport - Stef Hanson, is no ordinary woman.
Tassie girl by birth but Melbourne girl at heart, Stef was instantly addicted to triathlon - a sport with just the right amount of crazy to suit her energetic, hyperactive, goal oriented and competitive personality. Her passion grew with every swim stroke, pedal revolution and foot strike on the road. Pretty soon she knew that training and racing just wouldn’t be enough to quench her thirst for the sport.
So in came the universe to guide her next steps.
A chance meeting with an editor of a triathlon magazine resulted in an offer to add her expertise as a personal trainer/coach (with a handy degree in Communications) to the publication. In time that role grew to a more involved journalistic role - covering races, interviewing the best athletes on the planet, deep dives into inspiring amateur athlete stories and other feature articles.
A natural gasbagger by trade, she segued into commentary roles in local triathlons, the Weetbix Kids Tryathlon series and the occasional long course event. Stef’s insight into the workings of the sport behind the scenes offered her an interesting lens. Where was the coverage of women in the sport? Why weren’t they getting as much exposure as the men? Why do women seem to face so many barriers in simply getting started in the sport? These observations lead to what Stef thought was a reasonable and simple question to her editor at the magazine;
“Why aren’t there many women on the cover of our magazines?”
“Because women don’t sell magazines …”
… And, WITSUP was born.
WITSUP is, quite simply, a hub for women in triathlon. It’s something that didn’t - and still doesn’t - exist elsewhere and this is why we love Stef here at Eat for You. She asks the questions that don’t have an answer. She’s curious, hardworking, funny as all get out and has a heart the size of Phar Lap. Stef just doesn’t give up on you.
Now a Mum to little Frankie Flo, Stef appreciates even more the juggle that life deals us as working parents. Our organic bars are packed into every bag she owns - the car, the camera, the satchel - often making a regular appearance in the back pocket. An easy, no fuss, nutrient dense and filling snack for someone on the run (literally).
Talk about an authentic Ambassador! The girl is as real as it gets. We hope you love Stef as much as we do.
