Lady Moon Farms is excited to announce a partnership with Whole Kids Foundation to improve the nutrition of America’s children through salad bars and school gardens. The company encourages healthy eating habits and the exploration of edible gardens among school-age children.
Lady Moon Farms is the first produce company to join the circle of Growing Healthy Kids sponsors – who each make a $40,000 annual contribution. Lady Moon Farms founder, Tom Beddard said, “I feel that as one of our country’s premiere growers of organic produce, it is my responsibility to give back to the children of America and play a role in their education around living a healthy lifestyle. After all, they are our future.”
The donation will be realized with an in-store promotion during the Whole Kids Foundation’s Growing Healthy Kids campaign in early September at Whole Foods Market stores in the Mid-Atlantic Region. For every pint of Lady Moon Farms grape tomatoes sold in select Whole Foods Market stores, $0.15 will be donated to the Foundation up to $40,000. Lady Moon Farms plans to expand the promotion to additional stores in early 2015 when grape tomato season is at its peak from the Florida farm harvest.
