Campbell will give consumers the chance to win over a thousand prizes designed to help them kick start heart-healthy habits in their kitchen pantries.

Additionally, Campbell is introducing two new flavors of Healthy Request soups, Southwest-Style Bean & Barley and Tuscan-Style Lentil, making it even easier for people to start refreshing their pantries.

“As a proud long-standing supporter of the American Heart Association’s Go Red For Women movement, we are committed to encouraging Americans to make heart-healthy choices each day through our products and resources,” said Leah Dunmore, Vice President, U.S. Soup, Campbell Soup Company. “This year, we are looking at the kitchen pantry through the Campbell’s® Address Your Heart Pantry Project to show women that they can take small steps towards big improvements in their heart health.”

  1. What a great award with so many heart health issues in this country … congrats to her! It’s always good when celebrities get involved with public health issues because many people do watch what they do and model after them.
