Hy-Vee partners with Old El PasoTM to help provide education about nutrition acrossits eight-state region
WEST DES MOINES, Iowa (Aug. 9, 2023) — In partnership with Old El PasoTM, a popular brand of Tex-Mex style foods, Hy-Vee announces today the launch of the Hy-Vee Healthy You Wellness Tour, which will travel across the Midwest promoting healthy eating habits and nutrition now through October.
The tour is part of Hy-Vee’s commitment to fighting food insecurity. At the 2022 White House Conference on Hunger, Nutrition and Health, Hy-Vee made a commitment to educate 100,000 Americans in low food access areas, as well as provide 30 million meals to vulnerable communities by 2025. The Hy-Vee Healthy You Wellness Tour is an extension of that commitment.
Families attending a Hy-Vee Healthy You Wellness event will receive a meal kit from Old El Paso, that includes flour tortillas, refried beans and 25% less sodium seasonings. Families can also take home “Plus It Up” nutritional resources that provide simple tips to adding more nutritious foods to everyday meals, dietitian-recommended products, budget-friendly meal guides and freezer meal workshops.
