No child should go hungry at Christmas. People across the US, Europe and Asia helped us to get nutritious food to hungry children by filling the empty tummies of virtual teddy bears. Our campaign, ‘Dole Unstuffed Bears‘ raised USD 20,000 for food security charities, every dollar of which we matched with fruit donations of the same value.
Lighting the Way for America
We are shining a light on food poverty across the US with giant malnutrition labels projected onto buildings. Details about obesity, food insecurity, malnutrition and issues relating to food are highlighted to help educate and inspire actions that reduce chronic diseases.
Easy Family Recipes
With Canadian chef Cory Vitiello, we’ve created easy recipes, using Dole fruit products. Through our short videos, families can get inspired. What’s more, in 2020, for every video shared via social media, we donated a dollar to Food Banks Canada, totalling 10,000 Canadian dollars from 3.4 million views.
Educating on Healthier Choices
We are helping to bring blood pressure down throughout Japan, by sharing the benefits of GABA, an amino acid found in bananas. Verified by the government, GABA is particularly effective at lowering high blood pressure. We’re sharing this information on our packaging to encourage healthier food choices.
We’re bringing healthier food to urban communities in major cities across Asia. Stores and cafes now stock our single bananas as nutritious ready-to-go snacks. This is also a great way to ensure every high-quality banana separated from the bunch makes it into the shops, avoiding fruit loss.
Aid for Asia’s aging community
By partnering with local charities, Dole is creating nutrition packs that come with either juice, Fruit Bowls® or canned fruit for seniors in Korea, Japan, Singapore, and Thailand.
