Irvine, CA—Orgain has joined Whole Foods Market as a core sponsor of Whole Kids Foundation’s Growing Healthy Kids Campaign, according to a press release.
Orgain will contribute 5% of product sales—up to $50,000—from their Kids Protein Organic Nutrition Shakes to support the Whole Kids Foundation. 100% of donations will go directly to schools in the form of grants for gardens, salad bars, educational beehives, and teacher/staff nutrition training.
The program will be in effect in August and September across all Whole Foods Market and Whole Foods Market 365 locations.
Orgain Founder, Dr. Andrew Abraham, said in the release: “We are thrilled to join Whole Foods in their effort to raise awareness and provide opportunities for children and parents around healthy eating. Orgain’s mission is closely aligned with those of Whole Foods and this partnership furthers our dedication to inspiring, educating, and empowering kids and parents to live healthy vibrant lives through good nutrition. In fact, our “Pack Picky” back-to-school campaign ties closely to the work of the foundation.”
To date, the Foundation has provided grants for 5,452 school gardens, funded 5,711 salad bars and 401 educational beehives, and trained nearly 17,000 teachers.
