Green Giant Fresh has contributed more than $1.3 million to support K-8 schools across America through its participation in the Box Top For Education program.
The program contributes 10 cents for every Box Tops clip submitted to participating K-8 schools nationwide. There are currently more than 80,000 schools participating in the program, each of which can use the money to buy whatever they need for their classrooms.
“We started the program in produce because we wanted to make a difference where it really matters—with our kid’s educations and their futures,” said Green Giant Fresh CEO Jamie Strachan. “We know how much this money is needed to supplement classroom budgets, so we began offering products that feature a 10 cent Box Tops clip that is redeemable by their local schools,” Strachan continued.
Carissa E., principal at Toro Park School in Salinas, Calif., said, “We use our Box Top money for assemblies. Last year we had an assembly on wild life conservation and another that promoted technology and music. The Box Tops program helps us to bring the curriculum to life by providing the funds to pay for these assemblies.”
