In honor of National Pollinator Month, Whole Kids Foundation partnered with top chefs and celebrated restaurants to launch the 'Give Bees a Chance' campaign. The campaign hopes to raise $100,000 in order to fund 50 beehives to be used educationally in schools. 100% of every dollar raised will be donated to support the initiative.
According to 'Give Bees a Chance,' 1 in 3 bites of food is only possible thanks to bees and other pollinators. Bees pollinate over 100 different types of crops in the U.S.; therefore, the predicted loss of this key pollinator would negatively impact agriculture in America. The campaign partnered with top chefs and restaurants in order to showcase the vital role bees play in our food supply chain with bee produced dishes.
Since its launch in 2011, Whole Kids Foundation and The Bee Cause Project has distributed over 400 beehives for education. By teaching the youth of today, Give Bees a Chance hopes to promote a new generation of bee lovers.
