Produce for Kids raises funds to bring nutrition education program to local schools
The world’s only rock & roll nutrition show Jump with Jill kicks off today thanks to the efforts of the Produce for Kids hosted by Meijer. The consumption-based donations collected from participating produce suppliers including Bolthouse Farms, Dole, Green Giant Fresh, Grower Direct, Earthbound Farm Organic, Sunset, Real Sweet, Marzetti, Nature Sweet Tomatoes, HMC Farms, Sunwest, and Well Pict Berries this spring raised enough funds to provide Jump with Jill at no cost to 25 schools this fall in the following areas:
• Detroit, Michigan – November 12- 13 & December 15 – 18, 2015
• Southwest Ohio – November 16 – 24, 2015
• Indianapolis, Indiana – December 1 – 4, 2015
Thanks to the participating vendors, Meijer, and Produce for Kids for this wonderful partnership!
