Partnership Spotlight: Mars, Incorporated & Bread for the City- Community Farmers Market!
217 individuals picked up produce. 25 volunteers served. 16 furbabies treated and snuggled. All in all, a successful market!
Our first-ever enhanced Free Farmers Market on September 6th was a huge success! Thanks to our collaboration with our friends at Mars, Incorporated, we were able to add some much needed services to our bi-monthly free farmers market. In addition to distributing our usual fresh fruits and veggies, we hosted a cooking demonstration courtesy of Uncle Ben’s®, complete with delicious samples, free rice, coupons, and recipes; a pet clinic hosted by Banfield Pet Hospital® with free preventive care, giveaways, and educational materials from Better Cities for Pets™, and even oral health promotion courtesy of Wrigley Oral Healthcare Program.
A special thank you to our friends at Mars, Incorporated and their subsidiaries, to the Capital Area Food Bank for the continued support of our bi-monthly market, and to the Mayor’s office for promoting their clean cities initiative with pet waste bag giveaways.
