Feeding Success

MISSION, KS--(Marketwire - October 13, 2009) - A little encouragement goes a long way, especially when it comes to inspiring kids to develop their talents and achieve their full potential.

Someone who knows a lot about that is world champion gymnast Shawn Johnson. Johnson is partnering with the Lunchables team for the Lunch Note Promise Campaign to inspire parents to drop a note of encouragement into their child's lunch.

"I know a little note can make a big impact," said Johnson, who credits her success to the lifelong encouragement she has received from her parents and mentors. "I hope the Lunch Note Promise Campaign will give kids across the country a little extra encouragement."

For every parent that logs onto www.lunchnotepromise.com and makes the promise, the Lunchables team will donate a meal to children and families in need through Feeding America, which serves an estimated nine million children each year. The goal is to turn 100,000 promises into up to 100,000 meals.

"We believe every child can succeed if they are given support and encouragement," said Darin Dugan, senior director of marketing, Lunchables. "The Lunch Note Promise Campaign gives parents a way to feed the success of their children while helping other kids in need."

Lunchnotepromise.com also provides free downloadable stationery with vibrant, customizable patterns that parents and caregivers can use to create fun and cheerful notes that will delight their kids.

Moms can also feed their kids' success with a Lunchables Lunch Combinations. This fall, the brand rolled out six new varieties that feature enhancements like bread made with whole grain, turkey made with 100 percent turkey breast, plus spring water and applesauce.

Lunchables Lunch Combinations are available in the refrigerated section of grocery stores and retail for $3.49. To learn more about the new Lunchables or the Lunchables Lunch Notes Promise Campaign visit www.lunchnotepromise.com.
