Later this week, you'll have two opportunities to benefit local food-related charities, simply by grocery shopping and then swapping a canned good for a free sandwich.
A brief note from PPUG director Larry Stebbins:
Through grants and donations we have started eight new gardens in Colorado Springs. Next year we are partnering with LiveWell Colorado Springs and the Harrison School District to create an urban farm on Lake Street. We will be engaging families in gardening, nutrition and cooking classes. We need your help. Please shop at Whole Foods on Thursday, July 22.
Second — and this will be one of the rare times I send you to a fast-food chain — head to any Colorado Springs Chick-fil-A location (The Citadel, Chapel Hills Mall, Garden of the Gods Road, North Carefree Circle and North Academy Boulevard) on Friday, July 23 to support Care and Share Food Bank for Southern Colorado.
Bring at least two of the following requested items and receive a free Chick-fil-A sandwich or spicy chicken sandwich: peanut butter, canned tuna, powdered milk, canned fruit, Oreos, Cheerios.
Call 599-5416 for more information.
