going bananas

If you are in Portland this weekend for the Komen Portland Race for the Cure, look for the bananas. I'm sure you'll see them considering Del Monte Fresh Produce will be distributing 20,000 bananas to runners, walkers and other attendees the day of the race. 

And – some of these supporters will be wearing banana suits all for a great cause. 

Thousands of people are expected to attend. Leftover product will be donated to Oregon Food Bank.
 
I love bananas and obviously, so does Del Monte Fresh Produce. 

Why? Characterized by their bright yellow color and sweet taste, bananas are the ideal fruit for snacks and sports activities. They contain all eight amino acids that cannot be produced by our bodies and are an excellent source of fiber, vitamin C and potassium – a mineral that is depleted when athletes perspire. They also are high in anti-oxidants, shown in studies to help in the prevention of many cancers.

Again, this will be Sunday, September 18 between 6:30 a.m. and noon between the Morrison Bridge and Morrison Street at Tom McCall Waterfront Park.

Del Monte healthy baby-friendly recipes, YUM!
