Heinen’s Launches 4th Annual Project Learning Garden Contest in Partnership with Dole and Captain Planet Foundation

August 2021 – At Heinen’s, we believe that healthy eating starts with knowing exactly where our food comes from. In partnering with local farmers and forming longstanding relationships with growers, producers and artisans all over the globe, we take the guess work out of grocery shopping.

Our commitment to promoting healthy lifestyles expanded in 2018 when we partnered with Dole and Captain Planet Foundation to spread the message of hands-on healthy eating by gifting elementary schools in our Cleveland and Chicago neighborhoods their own state-of-the-art learning garden. We are thrilled to team up again to kick-off our 4th annual Project Learning Garden contest.

Project Learning Garden

Beginning August 17, 2021, Cleveland and Chicago elementary schools and accredited after-school child care facilities can enter to win a Captain Planet Foundation Learning Garden complete with a schoolyard garden, gardening and lesson supplies and a fully equipped mobile cooking cart, among other tools, for a one-of-a-kind hands-on learning experience.
