Blendtec has partnered with the American Heart Association and Healthy
Blendtec, a manufacturer of high‐end commercial and consumer blenders, donates blenders to the Kids Cook with Heart program, which provides schools with programs that teach children how to prepare healthy foods in a way that is fast, fun and easy.
Nicolla Ross, senior director of community health at the American Heart Association, expressed her appreciation.
“The blenders have empowered teachers and kids to go from the garden to the classroom with tasting activities and kid‐friendly recipe preparation,” she said. “We are so grateful to collaborate with Healthy Kids Concepts and Blendtec to empower students to eat healthy.”
Reed Beus, Blendtec chairman and CEO, reaffirmed Blendtec’s commitment to healthy eating.
“We understand that the best time to prevent obesity is when eating habits are established during childhood,” he said. “We’re proud to join in these efforts to raise the next generation of strong, healthy kids.”
Blendtec has delivered dozens of high‐powered blenders to schools across the country.
