NEW YORK, NY (Vocus) July 28, 2010
Restaurants at Loews Hotels across the country will be celebrating healthy eating while promoting the importance of environmental awareness in a number of engaging ways through an “Adopt a Carrot” program for kids from August 16 – September 6, 2010.
Under Loews’ “Adopt-A-Farmer” program, an initiative supporting partnerships with area farmers, fishermen and independent purveyors, “Adopt a Carrot” is centered on an interactive menu that teaches younger restaurant-goers the importance of supporting farmers and saving the environment. In addition to healthy options featuring carrots – such as carrot muffins and carrot dippers – the colorful menu takes children on a journey through their surroundings and the impact they have on the planet. Fun facts and games incorporate recycling tips, energy-saving methods and other ways kids can help make a difference.
In partnership with Burpee, one of America’s oldest and most-trusted home garden companies, over 15,000 kids dining at 17 Loews Hotels in the U.S. from August 16 – September 6 will receive a complimentary package of carrot seeds with planting directions to bring the “Adopt a Carrot” experience home.
“Carrots are a tasty and incredibly healthy vegetable, rich in the antioxidant beta-carotene, fat-free, low in sodium and a good source of fiber,” said Ellen Burke Van Syke, Loews Hotels creative director of F&B. “Because they are so good, and so good for you, carrots are the perfect extension for children of Loews’ ‘Adopt-A-Farmer’ program.
