COLES PARTNERS WITH STEPHANIE ALEXANDER KITCHEN GARDEN FOUNDATION
Today Coles Supermarkets has announced a three-year partnership with the Stephanie Alexander Kitchen Garden Foundation giving thousands of children across Australia access to a food education program that helps them develop a healthy relationship with food, self-confidence and life skills.
More than 2,000 schools and early learning centres around Australia currently participate in the Stephanie Alexander Kitchen Garden Program, reaching around 250,000 children and their families each year.
In addition to the ongoing financial support Coles is providing to the Foundation to help spread the word about healthy eating, Coles is celebrating the new partnership by donating 10 cents from the sale of a selection of Coles salads until 24 March.
Families can pick up Coles Fresh 5 Challenge placemats for free in the fresh produce department at Coles supermarkets while stocks last, or download and print a version from www.coles.com.au/Stikeez
