Dole Packaged Foods, LLC has teamed up with musician Phillip Phillips and grocery retail company The Kroger Co. to provide a ray of sunshine this holiday season. On Thursday, November 15, shoppers at participating Kroger Family of Stores can help those in their community by purchasing DOLE Canned Pineapple. For every 20 oz. can of DOLE Pineapple purchased, Dole Packaged Foods, LLC will contribute one can to a local food bank.
For Phillip Phillips, the “Let Sunshine In, Drive Hunger Out” campaign represents a cause that’s deeply personal. “I’ve traveled the country and seen friends and neighbors—many in my own hometown of Albany, Georgia—struggling with the uncertainty of not knowing where their next meal is coming from,” said Phillips. “By purchasing a single can of DOLE Pineapple on Thursday, November 15, you’re helping provide healthy meals to local families this winter.”
“At Dole, we are committed to supporting hunger relief efforts across the country,” said Stan Stuka, Senior Director of Marketing, Dole Packaged Foods. “Through our buy one, give one campaign on Thursday, November 15, we are continuing to help community food banks across the nation. We hope this small act provides a ray of sunshine for families this winter.”
