Chipotle, Lunch Box Team Up For Campaign Turning Junk Mail Into School Meals

Posted: Updated:

National restaurant chain Chipotle has launched a campaign to help children across the nation get healthy school lunches. Chipotle is asking the public to forward their junk e-mails to -- for each e-mail sent, a donation will be made to the nonprofit organization The Lunch Box.

The mission of the organization is to ensure that "all children...have access to healthy food to grow their bodies, minds and future." To accomplish this, the nonprofit works with schools to teach them how to provide nutritious meals with locally grown food.

Chipotle's goal is to reach 500,000 e-mails sent -- and they will donate $50,000 to The Lunch Box. So far, over 90,000 e-mails have been sent, which translates to over $9,000 for school lunches.
