Jamba Juice Engages St. Louis-Area Community Leaders In Advancing School Wellness And Academics

Jamba Juice Company (NASDAQ:JMBA), a leading healthy, active lifestyle brand, and GENYOUth Foundation, an organization focused on school wellness, today reinforced the organizations’ commitment to improving childhood nutrition and fitness. Jamba sponsored a gathering of St. Louis-area business, education, health, government, and sports leaders in a dialogue addressing regional school wellness. The event was supported by Midwest Dairy Council, The St. Louis Rams, The Magic House, and St. Louis Children’s Hospital, and was intended to foster greater collaboration among public and private-sector organizations in their support of local St. Louis-area schools.

The GENYOUth St. Louis “Learning Connection” Town Hall, held at Washington University’s College Hall, featured two lively panel discussions focused, respectively, on the subjects of Public-Private Partnerships & School Wellness, and Creating Change: Moving from Dialogue to Action. Panels were followed by breakout sessions with session attendees collaborating on solutions aimed at helping local schools improve nutrition and fitness education programs.

Panelists included Connie Diekman, M.Ed., RD, CSSD Director of University Nutrition at Washington University; St. Louis RAMS COO Kevin Demoff; WEB MD Nutrition Writer Kathleen Zelman; Ron Ramspott, Physical Activity Coordinator of Parkway School District; Missouri Dairy Farmer Donna Telle; local Fuel Up to Play 60 Student Rachel ; and others.

Attendees were welcomed by Jamba chairman, president, and CEO James D. White; GENYOUth Foundation CEO Alexis Glick; Mike Kruger, CEO Midwest Dairy Council; and Washington University’s Assistant Vice Chancellor Robert Wild. On behalf of the city, Mayor Francis G. Slay also welcomed the group.

“As I was with the San Francisco Town Hall that Jamba sponsored with GENYOUth last fall, I am pleased by the participation of so many St. Louis area leaders at today’s Town Hall,” said Mr. White. “That they all took time from their busy schedules to discuss the critical issues around school wellness is outstanding. I am confident that the event will result in great benefits for our local schools and students.” Mr. White cited Jamba’s successful youth job creation program, which has been recognized by President Obama as a model for public / private sector collaboration, as an example of the type of success he expects will result from the GENYOUth Town Hall.
