CHARLOTTE, NC - A new year does not mean that Dole Food Company will slow down its efforts to promote health, wellness, and hunger relief initiatives. As the provider continues to support these causes, it has announced it will extend its partnership with No Kid Hungry, which is committed to ending hunger and poverty.

William Goldfield, Director of Corporate Communications, Dole Food Company“We’ve been honored to work alongside No Kid Hungry over the past three years in their quest to ensure that every child in the U.S. gets the healthy food they need to thrive,” said William Goldfield, Dole Food Company’s Director of Corporate Communications. “While we’ve made some great strides together, there is still much work to do to fulfill both organizations’ goals of addressing hunger and food insecurity for children.”

Dole’s alliance with No Kid Hungry, a campaign of Share Our Strength, began in the summer of 2020 in response to the impact of COVID-19 on schools, a release stated. With these closures, millions of United States children were left facing hunger.

The supplier’s ongoing work with No Kid Hungry includes nutrition education, fundraising support, and at-retail initiatives to help the 13 million kids in the U.S. who are living with hunger to have access to three healthy meals a day.

Additionally, Dole is the presenting sponsor of Get Fit for No Kid Hungry, an influencer-based health and wellness fundraising initiative designed to rally the nation’s top fitness and nutrition experts to host health-related livestream classes and web-based instruction throughout January.

“At Dole, we are committed to providing the tools for a happy, healthy, balanced life for all—and the sponsorship of Get Fit, in particular, allows us to set a healthy, active tone for 2024 while helping to support the most vulnerable throughout the year,” added Goldfield.

The renewed collaborations with No Kid Hungry are part of a milestone year for Dole, including virtual health and wellness workshops, new brand ambassadors, dozens of new, produce-based recipes, and local and national celebrations marking the 125th anniversary of DOLE® Bananas.
