Our Give a Bit 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. ⠀
- Our Ambassadors help us to get the Eat for You word out so we can 'pay it forward' to local community organisations who need our support.
- For every purchase you make, we donate 50% of our after tax profits to those experiencing homelessness or disadvantage
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.
- Australian Diamonds Test Caps: 59
- Melbourne Vixens / Phoenix games: 245
- Premierships: 6
- Melbourne 2006: Silver
- Glasgow 2014: Gold

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.
Your purchase will support Jess's chosen charity partner Kickstart For Kids
Introducing our newest Give a Bit Ambassador here at Eat for You - Lisa Gormley.
Whilst you may recognise Lisa’s angelic face from the soapy shores of Home and Away, our love for her extends far beyond her brilliance as an Australian Actress, Director, Teacher and Casting Guru.
British born, South Australian raised and now fulfilling an enduring love affair with the Tasmanian wilderness, Lisa is no stranger to giving a shit. Aside from her glowing contribution to the Australian Arts Industry, we know her as a passionate advocate for sustainable living and her support of causes such as the Dogs Homes Of Tasmania and Bravehearts - an Australian child protection agency working to prevent sexual assault and exploitation.
Lisa is the kind of gal who walks what she talks.
She’s a lover of dogs more than people, the planet more than Instagram followers. She lives a (mostly) plastic free life, off the grid on 130 acres of wilderness in Tasmania's STUNNING Huon Valley. We look to her for recipe inspiration in using native Tasmanian ingredients in our bars, and her beaming smile lights up the screen on our monthly Ambassador zoom meetings.
You gotta love what this girl is made of.
