From now until October 26, families can help their local schools each time they visit the produce section of their local Publix. Together with Produce for Kids, Publix Super Markets is supporting the “Healthy Schools, Healthy Minds” campaign to raise money to provide salad bars to schools in their local communities.
Let’s Move Salad Bars to Schools is a public health initiative to donate salad bars to schools across the country in order to increase children’s fruit and vegetable consumption and improve childnutrition. Let’s Move Salad Bars to Schools supports First Lady Michelle Obama’s Let’s Move!initiative to end childhood obesity in a generation. Parents and educators can learn more about Let’s Move Salad Bars to Schools and how to register their school to receive a salad bar by visiting saladbars2schools.org.
Shoppers can find the Produce for Kids displays in the produce section of their local Publix during the promotion. When shoppers purchase sponsored fresh fruit and vegetable items, a donation will be made to the Let’s Move Salad Bars to Schools initiative.
