Good Foods is supporting No Kid Hungry, a national campaign to end childhood hunger in America during the back-to-school season. Through education and charitable endeavors, Good Foods and No Kid Hungry are focused on a mutual dedication to bringing communities together around food.
Pleasant Prairie, Wisconsin-based Good Foods makes all-natural products such as guacamoles, dips, salads and dressings as well as snacks and meals made with real ingredients, free of preservatives and artificial flavors. Products are packaged using high pressure processing that uses cold water pressure, keeping foods safe and at their peak freshness.
As families begin the new school season, Good Foods is providing a QR code on all products sold in stores to educate shoppers about childhood hunger in America and the company’s charitable mission. Good Foods will donate 10 cents for each branded deli cup sold during the month of September back to No Kid Hungry to end childhood hunger, with a minimum commitment of $35,000.
“We couldn’t have asked for a more generous or reputable campaign to partner with,” says Danyel O’Connor, EVP of sales and marketing for Good Foods. “No Kid Hungry perfectly aligns with our mission and values as a family-owned business to encourage and create accessibility of good food for people in need.”
The Good Foods charitable mission aims to educate communities on fresh, better-for-you food that comes from the ground and enable promising students with a passion for food to promote the growth of good, safe foods. Additionally, Good Foods encourages consumers to donate fresh food to events and food pantries that feed children and families in need.
“Childhood hunger is a serious problem in America and has been linked to kids struggling to learn and reach their full potential,” says Jill Davis, SVP of corporate partnerships at No Kid Hungry. “We are grateful for Good Foods’ support of our work to ensure kids’ have the food they need to thrive.”
