FOWLER, Calif., – Bee Sweet Citrus is eager to help launch the second half of the Power Your Lunchbox Campaign with Produce for Kids for a second consecutive year. The Power Your Lunchbox Promise, a national campaign, aims to encourage families and their children to eat healthier lunches, after-school snacks and everyday dinners.

“After the holiday break, it can be hard for families to get back in the swing of things for the remainder of the school year. That’s where the Power Your Lunchbox Promise steps in,” said Produce for Kids Vice President Trish James. “By partnering with healthy lunchbox brands, like Bee Sweet Citrus, we’re able to inspire families, classrooms and school to eat a healthier lunch.”

The second half of the Power Your Lunchbox campaign begins on January 8th and during the duration of the campaign, families will be encouraged to take an online promise that supports healthy eating. For every promise made, sponsors of the Power Your Lunchbox Promise will make a collective $1 donation to Feeding America programs that support families and children.

In addition to the online promise, Produce for Kids will be marketing healthy meals and tips on their numerous online and social media platforms. Families are also encouraged to use the #PowerYourLunchbox hashtag throughout the campaign to share ideas and help spread awareness on social media.

“Produce for Kids has done an amazing job of sharing healthy tips and recipes with families, teachers and students,” continued Bienvenue. “Its website also does wonderful job of providing supplemental material for families and educators who want more information on improving healthy habits at home and in the classroom. We’re very excited to take part in such an amazing, health-oriented project.”

The Bee Sweet Citrus marketing team will be sharing Power Your Lunchbox campaign material on all social media platforms, as well as Registered Dietician approved recipes. For additional information about the campaign, please visit www.poweryourlunchbox.com.
