I have a different kind of giveaway for you today. This giveaway will help others. Nestlé Juicy Juice and Feeding America have launched the Fruit for All Project: a new program that will help get 35 million pieces of fresh fruit into the hands of hungry children all summer. Fruit For All Project has offered a special giveaway opportunity for RMK. They are going to donate 400 meals to my local food bank along with another donation of 400 meals to a nearby food bank of one of YOU!
The Fruit For All Project will have a positive impact on families throughout America. Did you know:
- Over 16 million American children (more than 1 in 5) are food insecure, meaning they live at risk of hunger. Check out this Interactive Hunger Map to see county-by-county statistics.
- For food insecure children who rely on free or reduced-price lunches, the summer presents an even greater risk. In fact, 18.7 million children are at risk during the summer months.
- America’s battle against hunger is not about having enough food; in fact, 20 billion pounds of food go to waste each year.
From now until August 31, a piece of fruit will be provided to hungry kids and their families each time Juicy Juice is purchased. Kids and their parents can also get involved by logging on to Juicy Juice’s Facebook page or FruitForAllProject.com to complete challenges like games, quizzes and puzzles to earn even more fruit donations for those in need. It is a great way to keep your kids occupied and help others in need.
To enter to have 400 meals donated to your local food bank, just leave a comment on this post telling me what your favorite fruit is. You have until August 1 at midnight (MST) to enter.
