Dole partnering with No Kid Hungry to tackle childhood hunger
Dole Food Co. has renewed its partnership in 2023 with No Kid Hungry, a national campaign working to end childhood hunger in America.
The alliance began in 2020 in response to the effects of the COVID-19 pandemic.
The collaboration includes nutrition education, fundraising campaigns and at-retail initiatives to help give the nine million kids in the U.S. who are living with hunger access to three healthy meals a day.
Dole is also the presenting sponsor of Get Fit for No Kid Hungry, a health and wellness fundraising initiative rallying the nation’s top fitness, wellness and nutrition experts to host health-related livestream classes and web-based instruction throughout January.
“We are honored to work alongside No Kid Hungry in the quest to ensure that every child in the U.S. gets the healthy food they need to thrive,” said William Goldfield, Dole Food Co.’s director of corporate communications. “Addressing hunger and food insecurity for children is at the core of the Dole global mission of providing the tools for a healthy, happy, balanced life for all. The sponsorship of Get Fit in particular allows us to set a healthy, active tone for 2023 while helping to support the most vulnerable throughout the year.”
Dole recruited several of the key Get Fit for No Kid Hungry influencers participating in this year’s 2023 program including Charm City PT, Yoga Athletica and Dr. Rachel. The company is encouraging its social media followers, employees, customers, growers, retailers and other industry partners to contribute to the effort.
“We are so grateful to be partnering with Dole for the second year in a row on Get Fit for No Kid Hungry,” said Diana Hovey, senior vice president, corporate partnerships at Share Our Strength. “Their dedication to promoting health and well-being for all families makes them the perfect partner for helping to raise the critical funds and awareness needed to end childhood hunger.”
