Kwik Trip Raises More Than $81,000 for PHA

Checkout coin canister campaign helps Partnership for a Healthier America with its mission of promoting healthier eating options and fitness initiatives.

Kwik Trip has raised more than $81,000 during its 2018 coin canister campaign to support Partnership for a Healthier America (PHA)’s mission to leverage the power of the private sector to improve the food supply and increase physical activity.

Now in its fifth year, this campaign has raised more than $336,000 since 2014 to create healthier futures of our nation’s children and young adults. Throughout the month of June, all 570 Kwik Trip locations in Wisconsin, Minnesota and Iowa urged guests to support PHA’s work with the placement of canisters at every checkout.

“Kwik Trip brings their family-owned, family-friendly values to everything they do, and it’s through partnerships like these that the next generation can grow up free from obesity, diabetes and other chronic diseases,” said Nancy Roman, president and CEO of Partnership for a Healthier America. “From offering healthier options to its guests, to the annual canister campaign, Kwik Trip has made a commitment to communities across the country to support children’s health.”

Kwik Trip first partnered with PHA in 2014 and has made a number of advancements to make healthier choices more accessible for their guests, which included growing its EatSmart program and becoming the first convenience store to offer a PHA-approved snack bundle. In 2016, Kwik Trip expanded its PHA commitment to offer an increased variety of healthier options, including healthier packaged foods like nuts and whole grain granola bars throughout the store, and increasing healthier options in the checkout area.

“Kwik Trip is proud to help raise money and awareness in the communities we serve in support of the Partnership for a Healthier America’s mission and efforts to promote healthier eating options, fitness initiatives, and lifestyles for our youth,” said Dave Ring, Kwik Trip’s community relations manager.
