The days of Summer are dwindling and "back-to-school" season is upon us. Starting August 20, 2009, Revolution Foods' and sister baby-food brand Plum Organics are jumping aboard the Lunchbox Bus for a tour through New York City and New Jersey to hand out organic goodies outdoors at Whole Foods Markets. Revolution Foods is working towards their mission -- to revolutionize traditional school snacks and nutritional-free lunches -- with healthy snacks and on-the-go nutrition. Stop by the Lunchbox Bus for tips on how to build a healthy lunchbox and samples from Revolution Foods and Plum Organics' gluten-free Tots snack line. Locations, dates, and details after the jump.
