In brief

Campaign promotes child health

Homeland stores are partnering with Produce for Kids for the 12th Annual Get Healthy, Give Hope campaign to raise money for children’s organizations. The joint campaign began May 28 in an attempt to educate families on the benefits of healthy eating and raise money for the Regional Food Bank of Oklahoma’s Food for Kids Backpack Program.

Through June 27, five participating fruit and vegetable suppliers will make a consumption-based donation to the Food Bank’s Backpack Program, which provides chronically hungry elementary children with backpacks filled with nonperishable, kid-friendly food to eat on weekends and school holidays. That means, the healthier you eat, the healthier local kids in need will be.
