The following is a sponsored post on behalf of the Produce for Kids campaign with Publix. Opinions expressed are that of my own.
Starting June 2 through June 29 Produce for Kids and Publix will be partnering up to raise funds for local Feeding America® food banks!
Last year’s Produce for Kids campaign with Publix campaign raised more than $206,000, which supplied 2,275,295 meals to families in need.
The campaign is supported by 13 participating fresh fruit and vegetable suppliers, representing most major categories of fresh produce. Your purchase of these brands at Publix will then go to the contributions of this year’s campaign.
Sponsors include: Avocados from Mexico, BUDDY FRUITS, Coast Tropical Florida, Crunch Pak, Del Monte, Driscoll’s, Fresh Express Salads, HMC Farms, Brandt Farms, J&D Produce “Little Bear”, Shuman Produce, Marie’s Dressing, and Wonderful Pistachios.
You will find in-store displays and signage in Publix Produce Departments featuring the Produce for Kids and the Feeding America logo with information on the program as well as Recipe Ideas!
If you are looking for a way to support this initiative, I actually put together an easy Chicken Lettuce Wrap Recipe with 4 of the ingredients featured from sponsors of the Produce for Kids campaign with Publix, details are below.
Chicken Lettuce Wrap Recipe Serves 4-6
1 – Original Roasted Public Rotisserie Chicken
1 – Head of Butter Lettuce (I used Hydroponic)
1 – Ripe Hass Avocado
3 – Campari Tomatoes
Marie’s Creamy Ranch Dressing and Dip
First pull the white meat from the Rotisserie Chicken and place in a bowl. Then chop up the Avocados and Tomatoes into small pieces.
Next, pull 6 large pieces of butter lettuce and rinse. Dry the lettuce and then place on a platter.
Finally, evenly divide the pulled Chicken and then Tomato and Avocado among the lettuce (I ended up with 4-6 pieces on each wrap). When ready to serve, place a teaspoon of dressing over the top of each wrap.
The Chicken Lettuce Wrap can either be picked up and formed into a wrap (or taco shape) or eaten like a salad. Either way, it is a colorful dish and my 7 and 10 year old really enjoyed it.
