To the Editor:

I would like to thank the folks at Meijer Foods for sponsoring a wonderful event for our students at Ringwood School.

We had entered a contest to bring the Jump With Jill Rock 'n' Roll Nutrition Show to one of our schools. We were selected for one of only 10 shows they were doing in northern Illinois.

What an amazing, high energy, interactive experience for the students and staff at Ringwood Primary Center.

I had researched the expense of bringing this to our schools a few years ago, and it was more than our budget could afford. Fortunately, Meijer Foods realized the importance of teaching proper nutrition and physical activity to our youngsters and generously sponsored this event so more students will make better nutrition choices.

Thank you, Meijer, for caring about our community and our childrens’ nutritional education.
