Wonder Bread and its parent company Flowers Foods recently announced the $100,000 "Wonder of Science" initiative to support ongoing scientific learning for students across America. According to the company, which is celebrating its 100th anniversary, the 'Wonder of Science' initiative includes partnerships with AdoptAClassroom.org and Emily Calandrelli.
Calandrelli is an American science communicator, MIT engineer, and co-executive producer and host of Emily's Wonder Lab. As part of its participation in the program, Wonder Bread will be donating $100,000 to fund science education in U.S. middle and high schools, and present a series of virtual science events hosted by Calandrelli.
"We are honored to be part of such an ambitious and rewarding project," said John Steed, senior vice president of legacy brands at Flowers Foods.
