Meijer Stores and Produce for Kids



Hi neighbors!

Meijer Stores and teaming up again with Produce for Kids for the second annual Healthy Families, Happy Kids.  This campaign will raise money for local health and nutrition based classroom projects through DonorsChoose.org.  Just last year the campaign raised more than $169,000 and supported 652 classroom projects.

Campaign information:
Beginning Sept. 2 to Sept. 28, the joint campaign will help raise money for classroom projects that encourage healthy relationships with food.  The more produce Meijer shoppers add to their shopping lists, the more hope they can give to local children. All participating fresh fruit and vegetable suppliers at Meijer stores will make a consumption-based donation DonorsChoose.org.

Now, here are a couple recipes they allowed me to share with you.
