Calling Hampton Roads Shoppers

If you live in the Hampton Roads area, shop at Farm Fresh grocery stores, and use Farm Fresh's reusable shopping bags, we need you!

On Wednesday, February 4th, at The Market at Ghent in Norfolk, Va., Farm Fresh will be presenting the Chesapeake Bay Foundation (CBF) with a check for $26,000 for environmental education programs. We'll be taking a group photo that will appear in an ad in the Virginian-Pilot and we'd like you--and your reusable bag--to be in it!

Farm Fresh started its reusable bag program in November 2007, partnering with CBF. Every time a shopper uses one of the reusable bags, Farm Fresh donates five cents to CBF and gives the customer a five-cent refund on their bill.

The program currently runs at 45 Farm Fresh stores in the Hampton Roads area.

We hope you'll join us--

Date: Wednesday, February 4
Time: 10:00 a.m.
Place: Farm Fresh in The Market at Ghent
730 W. 21st Street (Ghent)
Norfolk, VA  23517

The first 50 people to register will receive a FREE Farm Fresh reusable grocery bag courtesy of Farm Fresh.
