GoGo squeeZ'??s Free Play Zone at Summer Streets will include an exciting day of organized games and activities, a Family Flipbook project, and the squeeZ More out of Life wall where every participant will become an official member of the GoGo Gang - a special role to get kids and familes involved in GoGo Time or simply good, active fun every day. At the free play zone, families can also learn about going '??green'? with a special, eco-friendly craft project such as turning a GoGo squeeZ packaging into new items like a change purse or decorative bow through GoGo squeeZ'??s partnership with TerraCycle®, Inc, an international upcycling and recycling company.

GoGo squeeZ will also be giving back to the New York community by donating 2,000 snack pouches to City Harvest, a leader in food collection and donation to New York'??s hungry. Meena Mansharamani, Managing Director for Materne North America spoke about this and stated "Our Free Play Zone allows families to enjoy healthier snacking with GoGo squeeZ, which lets kids enjoy the simplicity and goodness of childhood, while supporting a wonderful local cause through our product donation to City Harvest.'? Additionally, to celebrate the final weekend of Summer Streets, GoGo squeeZ has pledged to donate an additional snack pouch for every virtual Four Square check-in at their Free Play Zone.

In addition to focusing on nutritious applesauce for kids, the team at GoGo squeeZ is also committed to health and wellness and has teamed up for Action for Healthy Kids to renovate a playspace in an under-served community, making it easy and fun for children in the area to get their GoGo Time.
