Snacking for Solutions Benefit week generates donations!
In cased you missed it, Plant Kingdom pledged to donate 25% of sales revenue to Local Non-profits during "Snacking for Solutions" benefit week Jan 9-14th. We're pleased to report that sales were up (considering it's the dead-of-winter) and that snackers overwhelmingly chose City Fresh as their charity of choice!
City Fresh, and it's Akron arm - Summit Fresh - have made real progress in making affordable access to seasonal/fresh/local produce a reality in areas that need it most. It's also thrilling to find out that CITY FRESH is growing rapidly into Northeast Ohio counties, in part due to a generous federal earmark from Toledo-area Democratic Representative Marcy Kaptur.
Find out if City Fresh has a pick-up location for fresh-local produce near you at www.cityfresh.org. And consider signing up for this non-profit, volunteer-driven service! Like most farmers markets, City Fresh accepts and welcomes the Ohio-direction card!
Plant Kingdom wants YOU to know that we're legitamate and actually making the donations we pledged to make. So we will post photos on this blog of the Thank-you letters we recieve from the non-profit orgs.
