Meijer partners in annual Get Healthy, Give Hope

GRAND RAPIDS, Mich. – Meijer is once again partnering with Produce for Kids® for the 12th Annual Get Healthy, Give Hope campaign to raise hundreds of thousands of dollars for children’s organizations. The joint campaign, which begins May 25, will educate families on the benefits of healthy eating and raise money for the retailer’s designated charity: local Children’s Miracle Network Hospitals®. Since 2002, Meijer has raised nearly $950,000 for local children’s organizations.

To help Meijer increase its donation, shoppers are encouraged to add more produce to their grocery carts through June 21. All 11 participating fruit and vegetable suppliers will make a consumption-based donation to local Children’s Miracle Network Hospitals, which provides comfort, treatment and hope to millions of sick kids.

“We are proud of our long-standing partnership with Meijer to educate families on healthy eating habits while improving the lives of children in our local communities,” John Shuman, president of Produce for Kids, said.

For the third year, Produce for Kids also will partner with Sprout®, the 24-hour preschool television channel. As part of the Produce for Kids and Sprout partnership, popular Sprout characters will interact with shoppers at a Produce for Kids’ in-store appearance on June 7 at Meijer located at 6650 Whitestown Parkway in Zionsville, IN.
