Kings and Earthbound Farm have united once again to reward select shoppers with free groceries for choosing organic or Earth-friendly items the week of April 22
Kings Food Markets (Kings) and Earthbound Farm are excited to announce their partnership once again in 2014, continuing to encourage Earth-friendly shopping, in honor of Earth Day, through an exclusive “Make Everyday Earth Day” promotion the week of April 22. Earthbound Farm will have representatives on-site at select Kings locations to look for a total of 30 lucky shoppers with sustainable products, specifically Earthbound organic or other Earth-friendly items, in their carts. Not only will each winner receive all of the groceries in his or her cart for free but winners will also be asked to select a hunger-relief charity of their choice to receive a $50 Kings gift card, compliments of Earthbound Farm, to continue the effort by “paying it forward.”
“Kings is excited to continue this partnership with Earthbound Farm in 2014,” said Paul Kneeland, Vice President of Produce, Floral, Meat and Seafood for Kings Food Markets. “Our customers enjoyed it so much last year that we wanted to bring it back again this year, encouraging sustainability awareness all year long. Many of our stores offer the largest selection of organic produce, grocery products, meats and responsibly sourced seafood in their communities, and giving our shoppers the chance to win their entire grocery bill for taking advantage of these selections, is the perfect way for us to help to protect our environment and reward those who are doing their part.”
Starting on Monday, April 22, Earthbound Farm representatives will be surprising five shoppers in each of the following stores with the chance to win their entire grocery carts from 3:00 p.m. to 7:00 p.m.:
