Giving #FoodThanks this Thanksgiving

Disclaimer: The organization which I work for, AgChat Foundation, is responsible for this campaign. 

Update: We have extended our #FoodThanks giving through Christmas. Drop off a non-perishable food item at the farm and we will give you a $1-off Organic Valley coupon (while supplies last).

#FoodThanks

This time of year it is especially important to remember that many people go without enough food. Join the #FoodThanks campaign this year to help those most in need and say “Thank You” to those that help make it possible.

For the fourth year running the AgChat Foundation is asking you to stop and give #Foodthanks to the people who raise, ship, package, inspect, sell, cook, and everything in between the food that we eat everyday. This year, they are adding a twist. Give #Foodthanks by donating a bag of non-perishable food items to your local food shelf and AgChat Foundation will send you a #FoodThanks tote in appreciation (to the first 250 participants).

At Zweber Farms, we will be collecting your non-perishable food items now until Thanksgiving right at the farm. Bring along a boxed or canned good when you come to purchase ground beef or eggs and we will give you a $1-off any Organic Valley product coupon. After Thanksgiving, we will drop off your donations at Valley Natural Foods’ 360 Communities drop off location. 360 Communities has a network of five food shelves located in Apple Valley, Burnsville, Lakeville, Farmington and Rosemount, Minnesota.

Make sure to share your #FoodThanks donation on FoodThanks.com for your chance to snag an awesome tote (food not included). You will be able to enter beginning November 18th, 2013.
