For the eighth year in a row, Fresh Thyme will be hosting a Round Up at the Register during December to continue its commitment to this life-saving organization
DOWNERS GROVE, Ill., Nov. 30, 2023 /PRNewswire/ — Fresh Thyme Market, a grocer that has a mission to improve the way communities eat by offering real fresh food, is proud to announce that it has helped reach over 6 million* moms and kids with life-changing vitamins through its long-standing partnership with Vitamin Angels. Vitamin Angels is a public health nonprofit working to improve nutrition and health outcomes for the most nutritionally vulnerable groups — pregnant women, infants, and children — by delivering evidence-based nutrition interventions.
“We’re proud of the substantial and positive impact we’ve been able to have on moms’ and kids’ nutrition throughout our eight-year partnership with Vitamin Angels,” said Fresh Thyme Market Vice President of Center Store, Jonathan Lawrence. “However, we know there is more work to be done in our shared goal of improving nutrition in underserved communities. Together, we will continue to work to provide vital vitamins and minerals to those who need them most, fostering healthier communities and brighter futures.”
This impactful partnership combines Fresh Thyme’s mission to provide fresh, natural, and nutritious products with Vitamin Angels’ expertise in delivering essential vitamins and supplements to underserved communities. There are two key ways Fresh Thyme supports and donates to Vitamin Angels:
- All Fresh Thyme store locations host a Round Up at the Register program throughout the month of December, where customers have the opportunity to donate upon checkout each time they shop, which will then be donated to Vitamin Angels.
- Fresh Thyme donates 25 cents to Vitamin Angels for every Fresh Thyme branded Vitamin and Supplement that is purchased 365 days a year.
“We’re grateful for Fresh Thyme Market’s continued partnership and passion for improving the health of those in need across the United States and around the world,” said Howard Schiffer, Vitamin Angels Founder and President. “Together, this holiday season, we’re looking forward to giving the gift of life-changing nutrition to even more mothers and children who need it most.”
Fresh Thyme invites its customers to join in its efforts and make a meaningful change while supporting nutritionally vulnerable groups.
