Lowes Foods brings back
by Submitted by Kristy Sonnier
Lowe’s Foods is getting ready to launch the Locally Grown Club, a program that was introduced in 2011.
The Locally Grown Club will run for 13 weeks and offers customers the chance to purchase a variety of fresh, local produce in advance.
This program coincides with the locally grown efforts that Lowe’s Foods makes each year to support local growers and is meant to appeal to those who typically visit farmer’s markets or roadside produce stands.
Lowe’s Foods Locally Grown Club will feature six to 10 varieties of assorted produce in each box that may include zucchini, yellow squash, green peppers, blueberries, sweet potatoes, cabbage, cucumbers, tomatoes, peaches and many other seasonal items. Customers will receive 12 to 13 pounds of produce each week.
Their produce box will include farmer’s history, location and great recipes to help them enjoy the contents of each box.
Customers can participate for the whole season, six weeks, three weeks, or can buy a single box. They simply sign up through www.LowesFoodsCatering.com , pay in advance for their subscription and pick up their box each Saturday at the store.
Some of the local farmers that will be involved with the Locally Grown Club include the Doug Patterson family farm in China Grove, Deal Orchards in Taylorsville, Hunter Farms in King, and Wayne Mitchum in Lincolnton. Lowe’s Foods will also continue the partnership with Pilot Mountain Pride, a local food movement in Northwest North Carolina that provides a centralized aggregation center for 40-50 small farmers who have converted their tobacco farms into row crops.
The Locally Grown Club will run between June 2 and September 8. The cost per box will vary depending on the amount of weeks that the customer purchases:
6 or more weeks: $25 per week
3 - 5 weeks: $27 per week
1 week: $29
