Calling Young Artists!

Gather the kids and break out the art supplies! We’re issuing an invitation to young artists in our community to show everyone what it means to share a family meal.

Your Art Here!

To celebrate the launch of FreshDirect KidPower(TM) all-natural kids meals and support children’s art education and creativity, FreshDirect and The Children’s Museum of the Arts (CMA) have launched the FreshArt initiative: a call to young artists (grades three through six) to create works of art that express the positive experience of sharing a family meal.

This initiative will be launched in the FreshDirect delivery areas in New York, New Jersey and Connecticut. Three pieces of artwork — one from each of the participating states — will be selected to be featured large-scale on the sides of select FreshDirect delivery trucks. Also, a $1,500 monetary award will be donated to the schools designated by the parents or guardians of the creators of the selected art. (The designated schools must be located in the FreshDirect delivery areas.)
