LUNAFEST: A Ladies’ Night That Does Good
Here at SHAPE, we love LUNA. Not only are their bars packed with the nutrients women need to nourish our bodies, they give us the opportunity to nourish our minds and souls as well.
Today kicks off LUNAFEST, a traveling film festival featuring films by women and about women. And 100 percent of proceeds at the more than 150 stops go to charity, with 15 percent going to the Breast Cancer Fund and 85 percent going directly to a local nonprofit. To learn more about how you can host your own LUNAFEST screening and raise money for the charity of your choosing, visit lunafest.org/host-an-event. And to find a LUNAFEST location near, go to lunafest.org/attend-an-event.

As an editor at SHAPE I have the chance to learn about the healthiest ways to cook, eat, and live from all sorts of experts but I’m also a single girl living in NYC with a busy schedule, active social life, and chocolate cravings. I’m here to share what works for me—and where I need a little help from you.
