MARINA DEL REY, Calif., June 13 /PRNewswire/ -- Zac Sunderland, who at 16 years of age is seeking to become the youngest person to circumnavigate the globe solo, has announced that he will take with him on his around-the-world voyage a message of healthy eating.

The intrepid Sunderland has enlisted the support of Produce for Kids(R) (PFK), an organization that promotes the benefits of healthy eating and raises funds for Children's Miracle Network(R) (CMN) hospitals nationwide and PBS(R). Through PFK, additional produce sponsors have come on board to support the program including Shuman Produce (RealSweet brand), a produce marketing company specializing in the marketing and distribution of quality sweet onions from Vidalia, Peru, Ecuador, Guatemala, and Mexico; and Mastronardi Produce Ltd. (Sunset Produce brand including Campari Cocktail Tomatoes), the leading greenhouse marketing company in North America specializing in hot house tomatoes, peppers, and cucumbers.

Sunderland sets sail at 1:00 p.m. on Saturday, June 14 from the Marina del Rey Boat Show.

"The support of Produce for Kids, Shuman Produce and Mastronardi Produce is an invaluable part of this great adventure, and I'm thrilled to be taking with me a message that I hope can inspire people along the route to maybe eat a little better and stay healthy," said Sunderland.

On his 11-month voyage, Sunderland will benefit from the dietary counsel of Produce for Kids advisory board chairman, author and nutritionist Dave Grotto, one of the nation's leading advocates of a balanced diet. Grotto's book "101 Foods That Could Save Your Life!" was published earlier this year.

In recognition of the epic voyage, Produce for Kids will also make a financial donation in support of
