Produce for Kids® and Publix team up to help families eat healthier. And that is the work I admire and want to be a part of. Don’t you? I know you do too. Here is a recipe, provided by Produce for Kids and a good one if I may say so myself. It will make your Taco Tuesdays much more fun and tasty!
When it comes to fresh produce, my go to place, is my local Publix. During this fall season not only can we enjoy fresh produce, but each purchase will making a difference for our local families. Your help counts too. By purchasing select local produce at your local Publix you will be automatically making a donation to Feeding America. Hurry, because this opportunity to make a difference runs from September 15 through October 26.
Once you are in Publix you will find in-store displays and signage, featuring the Produce for Kids® and Feeding America logo will be displayed in Publix produce departments next to products supporting the campaign. Here are the produce sponsors supporting the campaign.
Produce for Kids® is dedicated to educating families on the benefits of healthy eating, providing simple meal solutions and raising money for children’s non-profit organizations. Last year’s campaign raised more than $206,000, which supplied 2,275,295 meals to families in need through Feeding America. I am very proud to be able to help and spread the word about the amazing job they are doing for our local families. When I go shopping for my produce I enjoy knowing that I’m giving back and you can too.
