The Andre Agassi Foundation for Education has teamed up with Michigan-based private label specialist V20 Foods to create Andre Agassi's Box Budd!es, a line of kids' snacks that will be sold in grocery stores nationwide.
100% of the proceeds from sales of the no-sugar-added apple sauce (unsweetened apple, strawberry apple, peachy apple and apple cinnamon); granola bars (chocolate chip and chocolate); and single serve shelf-stable milks (low fat, vanilla, chocolate); will go back to the foundation, said chairman and founder Andre Agassi.
"The idea of kids and parents helping other kids resonated with all of us.”
String cheese will follow soon.
Box Budd!es snacks are available at Albertson's, Jewel, Acme, Farm Fresh and Cub Stores nationwide.
The Andre Agassi Foundation for Education is a not-for-profit public charity dedicated to transforming education to create opportunities for children, which has raised nearly $200m since its inception in 1994.
Through its public charter school, the Andre Agassi College Preparatory Academy, it strives to provide underserved children in Las Vegas with a quality K-12 education.
