SmartMouth Gives Back to Local Food Bank to Provide Food and Dental Products
SmartMouth Oral Health Laboratories attended a food drive Wednesday, Dec. 12, to donate to Operation Food Search. SmartMouth made a monetary donation and provided their products as well. This monetary donation of $1,000 will provide food for 200 children for a weekend.
ST. LOUIS (PRWEB) DECEMBER 20, 2018
The SmartMouth products will be included in the Operation Backpack program. This program supplies children with a backpack of “kid-friendly”, yet nutritious foods to provide them with meals during the weekend when school meals are not available. When possible, dental care products are included in the backpacks because families that struggle with food insecurity also tend to struggle to visit the dentist on a regular basis. Providing SmartMouth products in these backpacks will help alleviate this issue. SmartMouth products are made using patented zinc ion technology that prevents bad breath for 12 hours per use. SmartMouth’s Clinical DDS formula, in particular, prevents plaque accumulation and helps prevent gingivitis.
“Operation Food Search thanks Triumph Pharmaceuticals for their generous donation of $1,000 and cases of their SmartMouth product via the Hardee’s/Dave Glover Show Holiday Food Drive,” says Sunny Schaefer, Executive Director of Operation Food Search. “Families who struggle to put food on the table also find it difficult to regularly visit the dentist. We make sure to include essential dental hygiene items to elementary schoolchildren in our Operation Backpack program and on our food drive “most needed” list of donations to be distributed to our community food partners. We can’t thank Triumph Pharmaceuticals enough for helping us work to solve the complex problem of childhood hunger and family food insecurity in our bi-state region.”
The event was hosted by the Dave Glover Show for their 2018 DGS Holiday Food Drive. The food drive goes until Dec. 21 at select Hardee’s locations. Operation Food Search will be there collecting canned goods and nonperishable food items as well as monetary donations. The Dave Glover Show is a talk radio program on KFTK/97.1 FM weekdays from 3-7 p.m.
Operation Food Search is a nonprofit organization located in Overland, Missouri dedicated to providing food to over 200,000 people every month in the bi-state area. Operation Food Search relies heavily on donations from the community with 98 cents of every dollar donated going towards programs and services.
