When we have the opportunity to tell you all about something great going on for kids in our community, we gladly say YES!
Our sponsors at Produce for Kids are teaming up with select grocers in Arkansas and Missouri to support local Feeding America® food banks offering shoppers healthy meal solutions and registered dietitian-approved recipes and tips. One reason we love this project is because like you, we are always on the hunt of quick, nutritious yummy meals we can share with our family (and share with you too, of course!).
Never heard of Feeding America®? It is a nationwide network of 200 food banks that leads the fight against hunger in the US, providing food to more than 46 million people through 60,000 food pantries and meal programs in communities across America–many right here in Southwest Missouri–helping our own friends and neighbors.
Feeding America® also supports programs that improve food security among the people they serve, educates the public about the problem of hunger; and advocates for legislation that protects people from going hungry.
There are several grocers that are participating in this initiative, including, Harps, Woods Supermarkets, Country Mart, Food Pyramid and Price Cutter. Click here to view the full list of participating grocers.
