Enmarket Announces Fundraiser for The Partnership for a Healthier America to Help End Childhood Obesity

January Donations Accepted at All 60 Convenience Stores

(SAVANNAH, GA) The Partnership for a Healthier America (PHA) announces the launch of a month-long customer donation campaign with enmarket, a convenience store chain operating in over 60 locations in the U.S. Money raised will go towards supporting PHA’s mission to ensure all kids can grow up at a healthy weight.

Throughout the month of January, customers at any of Enmarket’s convenience stores in Georgia, South Carolina and North Carolina can add $1 to purchases at checkout in support of a healthier future for our nation’s children. PHA is a nonpartisan, nonprofit organization that works with the private sector and PHA Honorary Chair First Lady Michelle Obama to make healthier choices easier.

“Access to healthy foods is essential for making sure kids live a long, healthy life. This campaign and Enmarket’s commitment to providing healthier options in convenience stores will help us make healthy choices easier for children and families — no matter where they live,” said PHA President and CEO Lawrence A. Soler.

Since partnering with PHA in May 2016, Enmarket has increased the number of fruits, vegetables, whole grains, and low-fat and nonfat dairy available in its stores. Additionally, Enmarket works to provide healthier options for Grab and Go items and makes sure healthier options remain affordable.

ABOUT PARTNERSHIP FOR A HEALTHIER AMERICA
The Partnership for a Healthier America (PHA) is devoted to working with the private sector to ensure the health of our nation’s youth by solving the childhood obesity crisis. In 2010, PHA was created in conjunction with – but independent from – First Lady Michelle Obama’s Let’s Move! effort. PHA is a nonpartisan nonprofit organization that is led by some of the nation’s most respected health and childhood obesity experts. PHA brings together public, private and nonprofit leaders to broker meaningful commitments and develop strategies to end childhood obesity. Most important, PHA ensures that commitments made are commitments kept by working with unbiased, third parties to monitor and publicly report on the progress our partners are making.
