Bee Sweet Citrus of Fowler has partnered with Produce for Kids in a campaign to encourage families and their children to eat healthy. The national campaign called Power Your Lunchbox Pledge is aimed to inform families of healthier after-school snacks and everyday dinners.
“For the past year, we’ve encouraged families to incorporate citrus into their diets as part of our #EatMoreCitrus campaign, so this initiative is right up our alley,” said Bee Sweet Citrus spokeswoman Monique Bienvenue.
The Power Your Lunchbox campaign runs Aug. 8 through Sept. 23. Families will be encouraged to take an online pledge that supports healthy eating. For every pledge taken, sponsors of the campaign will make a $1 donation to Feeding America programs.
Feeding America provides food to more than 46 million people through 60,000 food pantries and meal programs in communities across America, Bienvenue said.
The campaign’s site, poweryourlunchbox.com/, also has information on healthy meal plans, tips and recipes for improving healthy eating habits with families, teacher and students.
“Bee Sweet Citrus is very excited to take part in such an amazing, health-oriented project,” Bienvenue said.
