Whole Kids Foundation launches 2015 Growing Healthy Kids Campaign; aims to raise over $4 million for children’s nutrition
Whole Foods Market encourages consumers to invest in a healthier future for children through support of their foundation’s Growing Healthy Kids Campaign
AUSTIN, TX, 2015-9-1 — /EPR Retail News/ — Whole Kids Foundation is launching the 2015 Growing Healthy Kids Campaign, which aims to raise over $4 million to inspire families and support schools related to children’s nutrition. This year’s goal is to raise funds and awareness to help over one million kids gain access to nutritional education and fresh fruits and vegetables through the funding of salad bars and gardens for schools, as well as nutrition education classes for teachers.
“Our programs work to ensure kids gain better knowledge, understanding, curiosity, and consumption of nutritious fruits and vegetables, which in turn helps them pay better attention in class, improve their academic performance, and build confidence,” said Nona Evans, executive director of Whole Kids Foundation. “It’s been incredibly rewarding to see how quickly kids truly do come to understand the connection between what they eat and how they feel.”
Twelve retail partners have each committed to donating $40,000 to the Growing Healthy Kids Campaign this September. They are: Annie’s, Applegate, Back to Nature, Barbara’s, Cascadian Farm, Clif Bar, Daily Greens, King Arthur Flour, Organic Valley, Rudi’s Organic Bakery, Suja, and Stonyfield Farm. Additionally, Whole Foods Market covers operational costs for the foundation, which allows one hundred percent of individual donations to directly support Whole Kids Foundation programs. Customers can get involved by making a donation at store check-outs or online at wholekidsfoundation.org.
Launching this month, Whole Kids Foundation is introducing a new Healthy Kids Innovation Grant in partnership with United Health Foundation. These grants are meant to pave the way for fresh ideas around children’s health and nutrition in schools. Whole Kids Foundation has also introduced a new Extended Learning Garden Grant, which provides funding to support educational edible gardens on the grounds of a non-profit organization working with children. To see how edible gardens and salad bars are helping educate and inspire children to learn about nutrition, watch this video.
Rooted in three simple principles – eat a rainbow of colors, eat leafy greens first and eat as close to nature as possible – Whole Kids Foundation offers a variety of resources for parents and children through the organization’s Kids Club, which provides fun and healthy activities, including art projects, books, and recipes to do with kids both at your local Whole Foods Market location or at home.
Whole Kids Foundation President & Executive Director
Nona has a longstanding passion for improving the experience of children’s education, which she has married with the importance of nutrition and access to healthy food choices through Whole Kids Foundation, the newest philanthropic endeavor of Whole Foods Market.

Gap launches limited-edition girls and boys apparel and accessories inspired by Sarah Jessica Parker’s childhood heirlooms
INSPIRED BY PARKER’S CHILDHOOD HEIRLOOMS, THE COLLECTION CELEBRATES LOVE, LUCK AND MAGIC
NEW YORK, 2018-Feb-23 — /EPR Retail News/ — Gap, the iconic American clothing brand, launches the Gap | Sarah Jessica Parker collection, a limited-edition assortment of girls and boys apparel and accessories. The collaboration was a natural fit as it reunites Gap and Parker, who starred in a series of Gap ads in the early aughts. Stemming from Parker’s family tradition of saying “rabbit, rabbit” on the first of every month for good luck, the collection celebrates love, luck and magic.
Inspired by Parker’s childhood heirlooms, the collection embraces prints and texture by playing with ginghams, stripes, florals and eyelet in classic Gap silhouettes. Available in toddler and kids sizing, Gap | Sarah Jessica Parker captures all the nostalgia of passing along well-loved, storied pieces to family and friends, the exuberance of starting your own story in those same pieces, and the joy inherent in wishing luck upon children as they move forward in the world. Parker also worked with Gap to help create two women’s dress styles that are available in the collection.
“Creating this collection with Gap has been such a treat as a mother, as one of eight children, and as a reconnection with the brand,” says Parker. “I hope the pieces are cherished by the children who wear them, that items are passed down among generations, and that some great memories are created while wearing them.”
Channeling Parker’s good luck tradition, there are embroidered rabbits found throughout the collection as well as special ‘property of:’ sewn-in tags to detail each wearer throughout the years which takes inspiration from her own family’s rituals. Gap | Sarah Jessica Parker collection favorites for girls include gingham dresses and separates with eyelet hems, a navy and white stripe flutter sleeve dress with pink roses, a signature rabbit embroidered light blue bomber jacket and a rabbit inspired basket weave mini handbag while boys and toddler boys can choose from graphic tees and gingham shirting with khakis. The collection will also include ‘Ebbit the backpack,’ an egg-inspired character and playful companion perfect for school, travel or towing along for a spring picnic.
“It’s been a delight to collaborate with Sarah Jessica Parker on this special collection for kids that combines her nostalgic childhood memories with signature Gap favorites,” says Wendi Goldman, Gap executive vice president and chief product officer. “We are so thrilled to have Sarah Jessica back with the Gap brand in this new collaboration capacity. Together we created a collection that we hope will be passed down from generation to generation, just as we envisioned.”
With prices starting from $16.95 up to $78, the collection will be available on March 1 through gap.com and GapKids stores in select countries including United States, Canada, United Kingdom, France, Italy, Greater China, Hong Kong and Japan.
