New York (PRWEB) April 10, 2014
Calbee North America and TABLE FOR TWO USA announced the start of a three-month nationwide campaign that combines the maker of the “Harvest Snaps (Snapea Crisps)” with a global non-profit that tackles both obesity and malnutrition. During the campaign period (April 1st – June 30th, 2014), Calbee will issue special TABLE FOR TWO coupons for Harvest Snaps (Snapea Crisps) at various coupon platforms including http://www.coupons.com and will donate $0.25 from every purchase with the coupon. The $0.25 donation is enough to help upgrade a school meal to a much healthier alternative with fresh fruits and vegetables, no deep frying and reduced fat, sugar, and sodium. In choosing “Harvest Snaps” you make a great choice for yourself and at the same time help a local student in need eat a healthier meal.
Harvest Snaps are a naturally delicious line of baked snacks that have all the flavor, but less fat and lower sodium than traditional snacks, available in two vegetable types, Snapea Crisps and Lentil Snaps, with six different flavors. Calbee North America’s parent company, Calbee Inc is the second-largest snack food producer in the world.
TABLE FOR TWO (TFT) addresses the opposing issues of malnutrition and obesity through a unique “calorie transfer” program. TFT partners with corporations, restaurants, university dining halls and other food establishments to serve healthy, TFT-branded meals. The reduced calorie meals are then monetized and $0.25 per meal is donated to provide one school lunch for a student in need. To date, TABLE FOR TWO has served over 50 million meals globally, with over 600 partnering institutions throughout the world.
Co-President of TFT USA Mayumi Uejima-Carr states, “In the US, 50 million Americans lived in food insecure households and at the same time roughly 90 million Americans are obese. It’s also said that people that are food insecure have a higher risk of obesity due to lack of healthy food.” She continued to state, “With the generous support of Calbee, we will be able to provide thousands of healthier lunches to local students from low income families, while Calbee’s customers will be able to enjoy a healthy snack.”
