Produce for Kids is partnering with grocery stores across the country in a Get Healthy, Give Hope campaign. At participating Fred Meyer and Kroger locations you can make any produce purchase and the store will make a donation to the local children's hospital. (see below for exact schedule)
And while you're shopping for your produce, keep an eye out for this display with Ideal Meal recipe cards for you to try. Quick and easy healthy meal ideas centered around fresh fruits and veggies. Perfect for our busy summer schedules!
Where we live there's a fruit stand on every corner and we love the farmer's markets in the summer! So it's nice to know that our local Fred Meyer stores also source their produce locally - from the Northwest that means only Washington, Oregon, or Idaho when in season.
We've been the beneficiary of our local Seattle Children's Hospital so I'm happy to support this campaign and hope they will help many more children for years to come.
