September marks the end of Organics Unlimited’s 3rd annual GROW month-and it sure was a busy one! With events in Seattle and San Diego, we were able to educate thousands about organic bananas and our GROW fund.
At the beginning of the month, we ventured to Issaquah, Seattle to PCC Natural Markets for their Healthy Living Fair. Armed with banana samples and giveaways, hundreds of PCC visitors got a chance to learn about GROW.
We then attended a movie screening at the historic La Paloma Theatre in downtown Encinitas. Sponsored by Jimbo’s Naturally, the screening featured the movie “Fresh,” a documentary on the benefits of eating organic and sustainable foods. 245 movie-goers were able to learn about our GROW program.
GROW played a part in the San Diego Aids Walk as more than 5,000 participants were able to snack on a GROW banana after completing the course. Participants were also able to pick up GROW recipe cards, which included recipes like banana “ice cream” and healthy banana cookies.
