Vitamix Supports "Healthy Cleveland" Initiative

CLEVELAND-Vitamix is providing support for "Healthy Cleveland," a program intended to improve the health and fitness of residents of that city.

The company is participating with other Cleveland public and private entities, including Dave's Supermarkets and The Cleveland Foodbank, to provide smoothies to children at 10 Cleveland Recreation Centers this summer. Vitamix has donated blending equipment and providing consulting services from its registered dietician. The company has already helped several Cleveland-area schools to establish smoothie programs, creating several nutritionally rich recipes specifically tailored to children's palates.

The smoothies, which are made with fruits and vegetables, have been added to the centers' existing free-lunch program and are geared toward ensuring that children receive regular servings of fruits and vegetables.
