PHILADELPHIA -- Acme Markets here will raise funds for the Alfred I. duPont Hospital for Children and the Children's Hospital of Philadelphia as part of its participation in Produce for Kids, the program that promotes the importance of adding more fruits and vegetables to children's daily diets.
From May 26-June 22, Acme Markets will promote the following sponsors in their stores: Shuman Produce's REALSWEET brand Vidalia Onions; Del Monte Gold Extra Sweet pineapples in whole and fresh cut forms; Fresh Express fresh-cut salads; T. Marzetti refrigerated salad dressings and Veggie Dips; Country fresh-cut fruit and vegetables; Ripe N' Ready tree fruit; and Sunkist oranges.
Participating sponsors contribute to Alfred I. duPont Hospital for Children and The Children's Hospital of Philadelphia by making a per-unit donation based on shipments of select items to Acme Markets. All funds directly benefit children's hospitals located within the areas served by the participating retailers.
"This year's PFK program offers more than ever before," said Anthony Barbieri, director of producer for Acme. "The expertise of nationally noted nutritionist and author Connie Evers and the additional activities and incentives available through the new Healthy Kids Club makes this campaign more fun plus promises to raise more money." Acme Markets is committed to providing this valuable information to its customers and pleased to give back to the community by supporting Alfred I. duPont Hospital for Children and The Children's Hospital of Philadelphia."
Acme Markets operates 134 supermarkets in New Jersey, Pennsylvania, Delaware and Maryland, under the Acme and Acme Sav-on banners. The company is the leading food and drug retailer in the Philadelphia market.
