Enmarket Fundraiser Aims to Help End Childhood Obesity

Customers can add $1 to purchases in support of a healthier future for children.
January 12, 2017

​WASHINGTON – The Partnership for a Healthier America recently announced the launch of a month-long customer donation campaign with enmarket, a convenience store chain operating in more than 60 locations in the U.S. Money raised will go toward 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.
