“#Greenmyschool is a really special program for EMA. As a mom, who actually has an edible garden in my home, I understand first hand how much that has motivated my daughter to be excited to eat veggies. And as a long time EMA Board member, expanding #Greenmyschool with the support of Birds Eye will give us the opportunity to share our passion and really help change the game by bringing plant-based nutrition, agriculture and the importance of eating vegetables to students around the country,” said Zimmer.

Through the partnership with EMA, celebrities visit their hometowns around the country, and work with students to plant and cultivate a community garden. Students learn the importance of plant-based nutrition, basics of agriculture and receive tips and information from the educators working with the program.
