Dole’s new “Let Your Glow Show Contest” honors individuals making a difference in their communities in line with the Dole Promise
WESTLEAKE VILLAGE, Calif., Jan. 27, 2023 /PRNewswire/ — Dole Packaged Foods, LLC today announced the “Dole Let Your Glow Show Contest“. This initiative is an extension of Dole’s new “Let Your Glow Show” beverage campaign, which highlights the unique people who glow from the inside out and appreciate the amazing tropical flavors and nutritional benefits of Dole 100% Pineapple Juice. The contest will shine light on two change makers who are making the world a better place in the areas of nutrition, sustainability or food waste. Each will be awarded a $10,000 prize to support their cause and charitable organization of choice.*
Beginning today, Dole is accepted entries and wants to hear about the amazingly unique individuals who are living out the Dole Promise – the glowing people who are bettering their communities by working to solve the hunger crisis, fighting for healthy food access, advocating for good nutrition or finding sustainable solutions for our planet by eliminating plastic use, food waste, or reducing their carbon footprint.
“Since the Dole Promise was introduced in 2020, we have been on an accelerated mission to deliver a positive impact on people and the planet,” said Orzse Hodi, Senior Vice President and Managing Director, Americas, Dole Packaged Foods, LLC. “As we work toward better nutrition and sustainable practices, we understand we can’t single handedly transform the world, so we’re excited to support those who are also working to make an impact in the areas of food access and sustainability.”

- How do you Let Your Glow Show? Tell us in 500 words or less how you are making the world a better place. The more specific the better!
- How will Dole help drive your mission forward? Tell us how receiving this prize could help you move your impactful work forward.
- Make your submissions shine! Be sure to include any photos, videos or supporting documents to show us how your work truly glows.
