Century 21 Department Store is partnering with Super Sprowtz and Food Bank For New York City to promote healthy eating through a series of educational puppet shows in each of its stores over seven weeks.
Super Sprowtz is a nutrition education company which features super-powered vegetable characters that inspire kids to eat healthier through adventure, story and play. Kids will learn about the importance of adopting good eating habits and understanding the source of where food comes from. Fairway Markets will be providing fresh vegetables for sampling.
“Super Sprowtz has performed for tens of thousands of kids in this last year but this will be our biggest most ambitious show series yet, featuring all ten of our Super Sprowtz puppets, along with musicians, celebrity guests, prizes, giveaways and more. We are thrilled to partner with a family-owned and operated business like Century 21 to benefit our charity partner Food Bank For New York City. Century 21 clearly cares about their customers’ wellbeing and is more than just a retailer. As a proud New Yorker and author of the Super Sprowtz, I couldn’t ask for more venerable organizations to work with,” said Radha Agrawal, Founder and CEO of Super Sprowtz LLC.
The event on November 3 in downtown Manhattan is the largest one on the tour. Past events have featured celebrity athletes such as Shaquille O’Neil and Darryl Strawberry. This year’s event promises to be just as exciting with a surprise celebrity guest!
A portion of all Children’s Department merchandise sales made during the event, including Super Sprowtz products, will be donated to Food Bank For New York City or the local Food Bank chapter.
