Campbell’s Soup Wants to “Help Grow Your Soup”

Campbell’s Soup Wants to “Help Grow Your Soup.”

Campbell’s Soup is giving back to the nation.

On March 15th, 2009, visit helpgrowyoursoup.com to see how you can get free Campbell’s tomato seeds when you buy any kind of Campbell’s condensed soups.

You’ll be getting more than just seeds, though. As their website says, “Your request will help Campbell’s donate seeds to plant gardens in communities and schools across America.”

They have a partnership with the National FFA Organization, a group that is dedicated to help teach the next generation of farmers, along with singer Jewel. Together they have created the “PALS” program – Partners in Active Learning Support. The program puts high school agriculture students together with elementary school children to help them “build trust and develop positive self’esteem”, as well as teaching them the joy of growing your own food.

As part of the “PALS” initiative, Campbell’s will also build at least 3 new greenhouses devoted to agricultural learning.

They’re not just using the “Help Grow Your Soup” program to teach children about gardening, though. Another goal in their partnership with the National FFA is to restore historic barns across the nation. They have chosen 5 barns to renovate, helping to preserve part of our heritage. The local FFA chapters will help coordinate the building efforts.

I haven’t been able to find any further details about the exact offer for the tomato seeds, but it looks like it will be supporting a great cause. Visit helpgrowyoursoup.com on March 15th to see how to get your own set of Campbell’s tomato seeds and grow your own soup at home!

    It’s always great to see food companies take initiatives like this but I can’t help but think that if this ever actually helped Campbell’s customers grow their soup rather than buy it, Campbell might have second thoughts. we’re probably not there yet though!

    This is a wonderful idea. So great for the FFA kids to know that a large successful company is interested in them. Not only will the country get better future farmers from this endeavor but Campbell Soup will probably get future employees, and they will be good ones. Thanks for the seeds.
