Produce For Kids Campaign



Hi neighbors!

I hope you all are having a great day!  I had some information I wanted to share with you here At the fence about Produce For Kids.  Produce For Kids is launching it's annual, Get Healthy, Give Hope campaign.  They use this campaign to help raise funds for Children's Miracle Network Hospitals.  They are working with several major Supermarkets across the country.  By purchasing more produce, not only are you helping your family to eat healthy, but you are also giving help to local children.

Meijers will be offering shoppers collectible Produce For Kids' Ideal Meals from now until June 23rd.  These are quick and easy healthy meal ideas. 

Ideal Meals offer shoppers chef-created/nutritionist-approved easy solutions for breakfast, lunch, dinner and dessert. Featuring fresh fruits and vegetables as the main ingredients, Ideal Meals are great for busy families who crave fast meal options that don’t require stopping at the local drive-thru.

Be sure to stop by your local Meijers store Saturday June 9th as they will be holding in-store food demos of Ideal Meals.  Make it a fun time with your family and stop in to try some new healthy meal options.
