Give Bees a Chance - Help Fight Colony Collapse

Bees play a vital roll in our food supply, pollinating more than 100 types of nuts, fruits and veggies! Our passion for improving kids nutrition, wellness, and access to healthy foods is exactly why we’re raising awareness and building partnerships to help support the endangered honey bee population.

One out of every three bites of food we eat is thanks to our pollinators!

Bugs, like our honey bees, help turn flower buds into produce by depositing pollen from plant to plant. Unforutnately, our pollinators, specifically bees, are in decline. Where would we be without bees?

 

This is what your produce choices would look like without bees:
