We nearly always have Juicy Juice in our fridge and it really warms my heart and makes me proud to support them when I hear such great news like this. Juicy Juice, Feeding America and celebrity mom and anti-hunger advocate Samantha Harris (Dancing with the Stars, Entertainment Tonight) have teamed up for the Fruit For All Project to put up to 35 million pieces of fruit in the hands of children and families in need. Over 16 million American children (more than 1 in 5) are living at risk of hunger. This Interactive Hunger Map shows the staggering percents state-by-state of people living in hunger. For children who rely on free or reduced-price lunches, the summer presents a great risk. 18.7 million children are at risk during the summer months. It’s so hard to think that with all this hunger nearly 20 billion pounds of food go to waste each year here in America.
Between June 1 and August 31, a piece of fruit will be provided to hungry kids and their families each time Juicy Juice is purchased. Kids and their parents can also get involved by logging on to Juicy Juice’s Facebook page or FruitForAllProject.com to complete challenges like games, quizzes and puzzles to earn even more fruit donations for those in need.
