The bags, which extend shelf life, reduce shrink and ensure food safety, feature the popular Box Tops For Education® coupon and are available in 12oz, 1lb, 1.5lb, 1.75lb, and 2lb configurations as well as custom sizes. This enables Gourmet Trading Company, a 30 year old company, to provide retail the perfect size bag for each store’s demographic.
“Box Tops For Education® is helping fill the void for funding in education” says Julia Inestroza, Marketing Director, Gourmet Trading Company. “It’s one of those rare national programs that is able to connect to communities, one school at a time. People can identify with it and know they can make a difference just by purchasing products with the Box Tops logo. Gourmet Trading Company is proud to offer a fresh, healthy product that bears the Box Tops logo to not only help with funding in schools but to contribute to the good health of children and their parents.”
Box Tops for Education is nationwide fundraising program dedicated to helping America's schools get the things they need — from books and school supplies to playground equipment to computers. Parents clip Box Tops coupons from specially marked products like Green Giant Fresh bagged asparagus, and turn in the Box Tops coupons to their local school or online, and the school receives a check.
“Box Tops for Education is a proven and trusted partner with our nation’s schools, says Jamie Strachan, President, Green Giant Fresh. Green Giant Fresh’s Box Tops for Education program turns everyday activities into cash for America’s cash-strapped schools, and we’re pleased to be working with Gourmet Trading Company to bring powerful attention to this important promotion.”
Green Giant® Fresh asparagus featuring Box Tops For Education® are now available at select grocery stores.
