Produce for Kids is launching its annual Get Healthy, Give Hope campaign with major supermarket chains across the country, including your local Publix store, to help raise money for Children’s Miracle Network Hospitals. The campaign will run through June 27th. The more produce Publix shoppers add to their shopping lists, the more hope they can give to local children. All participating fresh fruit and vegetable suppliers at Publix stores will make a donation to local Children’s Miracle Network Hospitals.
To learn more about the campaign, you can visit the Produce for Kids in-store display which features easy-to-prepare recipes, helpful materials with additional information on the campaign and links to visit more than 90 easy Ideal Meals® recipes online. The display also features characters from the popular Sprout® health-focused children’s series“LazyTown™” and “The Chica Show,” along with tips on healthy eating for kids.
