Keep the Smiles Coming-Help Feeding America

kid with pineapple eyes Nearly 14 million children are estimated to be served by Feeding America because over 17 million kids in the US are at risk of hunger and nearly 1 in 4 children are not certain where their next meal will come from!

That is a shocking amount of US children going hungry!

Last month I was able to visit our local food bank and was shocked by how little fresh food (fruits and veggies) they had. Kids need lots of fresh food to stay healthy and grow strong! That’s why the Lunchables team is donating up to one million pounds of fresh fruit to Feeding America®, the nation’s leading domestic hunger-relief charity*. We are happy to work with them and do our part!

The Lunchables team is always looking for ways to make our products a better choice for moms and more enjoyable for kids.  So they are introducing new Lunchables with Fruit!  New Lunchables with Fruit provide a full serving of fruit with DOLE® Mandarin Oranges or Pineapple Tidbits in 100% fruit juice.**  The new line includes four kid-favorite varieties: NEW Peanut Butter + Jelly Sandwich; Turkey + Cheddar Cracker Stackers; Ham + American Cracker Stackers and Extra Cheesy Pizza.

Now that is something to smile about. And since you are now smiling, lets keep it going and help Lunchables help Feeding America! Here are two things you can do:

  • You can help us Keep the Smiles Coming and bring fresh fruit to those in need by uploading your favorite picture to Facebook.com/Lunchables to create your very own fruit photo!  For each fruit photo uploaded to Facebook, we’ll donate 10 pounds of fresh fruit to Feeding America®, with a pledge of donating up to one million pounds of fruit!
