The Chobani Foundation, in partnership with Save the Children, is plans to donate more than 80,000 Chobani Kids and Tots products to preschoolers in 14 Head Start centers in Arkansas and Louisiana, including the Early Head Start/Head Start program, 606 Pine in Mena, and the Head Start Melton Child Development Center, 609 N. 29th St. in Ozark.
A child's health directly impacts his or her readiness to learn, grow and develop, and good nutrition helps children in these areas, according to the Chobani Foundation and Save the Children. The donation will be spread out over the next year, according to a recent news release from the foundation.
The foundation also is donating $50,000 in direct funding and nearly $50,000 in in-kind shipping services. Visit www.chobani.com/impact/chobani-foundation for information.
