GROW by Organics Unlimited is proud to report that the Power Your Lunchbox campaign by Produce for Kids held August 8 to September 23, 2016 was a huge success! This was the third year in a row that GROW has partnered with Produce for Kids for this worthy cause. The campaign encouraged families and individuals to take a pledge to pack healthier lunch items during the back-to-school season, including GROW organic bananas and other participating healthy brands. For each pledge, Organics Unlimited and other sponsor brands made a donation to Feeding America® children’s programs that focus on health and wellness across the country. Retailers, media and trade organizations were able to support and promote the campaign through activities such as a Twitter party (which got 14.6 million views) and by sharing the message of GROW during the Power Your Lunchbox campaign through social media.
