This fall, Produce for Kids and DonorsChoose.org are joining forces to support the Produce for Kids "Healthy Families, Helping Kids" campaign, through the funding of local health and nutrition based classroom projects in participating retailers' markets. During the campaign, running September through October in select grocery store chains, shoppers are encouraged to help support local classroom projects by adding more fresh fruit and vegetables to their carts.
Produce for Kids® encourages healthy eating among families by providing simple, healthy meal solutions and resources for parents, while raising funds for local children's non-profit organizations. Since its creation in 2002 by Shuman Produce Inc., Produce for Kids has raised more than $4.2 million to benefit kids.
