Charlotte, NickAnd January 5 2022 /PRNewswire/ — The Dole Food Company is helping Americans get 2022 off to a healthier, energized start by stepping up the role of presentation sponsor for Get fit for no hungry baby, an influencer-based health and wellness fundraising initiative that aims to rally the nation’s top fitness, wellness and nutrition experts to host fitness “lessons” throughout the month of January. By doing so, the national product provider will inspire kids and families to get fit and give back as they donate to No Kid Hungry, the national campaign to end child hunger in America.
As the Get Fit for No Kid Hungry Presentation Sponsor, Dole will advocate for influencers hosting live exercise, nutrition and mindfulness sessions throughout January to build awareness of the increase in childhood hunger since COVID-19, with the ultimate goal of raising funds to support No Kid Hungry’s work to ensure Every child in America gets the healthy food they need to thrive. Dole announced last month that it has renewed its national alliance with the No Kid Hungry campaign to end child hunger in America, as a partner in 2022.
“Dole believes that everyone should eat fresh produce to prolong their health. Knowing that one in six children in the United States could go hungry this year due to the prolonged effects of the pandemic, Dole has moved to use its platform in partnership with No Kid Hungry to tackle the crisis” William Goldfield, director of corporate communications at Dole. “We know the role that fitness plays in a healthy lifestyle, and the importance of establishing healthy habits in 2022 after the past several challenging years from a mental health, nutrition and exercise perspective. Get Fit for No Kid Hungry addresses all of this and makes it easy for the public to participate.” We are excited to help spread the word.”
Dole’s sponsorship of Get Fit for No Kid Hungry is part of a larger month of activities encouraging its followers and audience to start 2022 on the right foot. Items include nutrition and fitness advice from Melanie Marcus, MA, RD, Director of Nutrition and Health Communications at Dole, and dual-brand social, web, email and PR activities throughout January.
Active in the health and wellness blogger and influencer space since 2009, Dole has recruited some of the major Get Fit for No Kid Hungry influencers to participate in the program including The Parentologist Dr. Kim, wellbeing coach and author Jason Williams.
Dole also created a “Get Fit for No Kid Hungry” fundraising page and encourages millions of followers, employees and customers on social media, Dole Nutrition News Email newsletter subscribers, farmers, retailers and other industry partners to contribute to this effort.
