June is National Pollinator Month! One-third of our food exists because of the powerful work of pollinators like bees. Thanks to our supplier partners, Whole Kids Foundation is able to support pollinator education by awarding bee hive grants to schools.

Once Upon a Farm

Without pollinators, there would be no avocado, kale, apples or strawberries to feed our kids. Once Upon a Farm depends on organic produce—and pollinators—to make their organic, cold-pressed smoothies and baby food. Jennifer Garner, cofounder of Once Upon a Farm, also supports pollinators by keeping bee hives in her yard. (That’s right, she’s a beekeeper!)

Horizon Organic

More than 20 years ago, Horizon’s founders helped pioneer the organic dairy movement. On a mission to raise the bar in doing business, Horizon Organic is B Corp Certified for their efforts to put workers, communities and the environment first. Their goal is to always “bee” a force for good, and that includes partnering with Whole Kids Foundation to raise awareness for pollinators.

Cascadian Farm

Pollinators always welcome! Cascadian Farm has been farming organically since 1972, and they know how essential bees are to the environment. They collaborate with partner farms to build healthy habitats that help native bees thrive. Cascadian Farm has contributed nearly $1 million to pollinator projects since 2012.

Honest Tea

Without water there is no tea, and without pollinators there’s no mint or “just a tad sweet” to its Organic Moroccan Mint Green Tea. Honest believes that all families should have access to organics at an affordable price so everyone can enjoy. And, if it’s not organic, it’s just not Honest.

KIND Snacks

KIND believes that you shouldn’t have to choose between health and taste when it comes to snacking. Honey is the ingredient that keeps it all together, along with other KIND Bar ingredients you know and love, like whole nuts and dried fruit. If there were no honey bees, there would be no KIND snacks. [Image credit]
