|Eat Local Food In- Stock Market Bags|
From customer H.
"I purchased tote bags as Christmas
gifts this past year and was very pleased with them. The designs are
beautiful. They are made in the United States with sturdy stitching and
hefty canvas fabric. I like that the handles are long enough to put over
my shoulder if I want to. Now my friends and family members are the
most stylin' shoppers at the farmer's market."
Available in 5 designs, we offer
Free Shipping and Wholesale Prices on our In-Stock Market Tote
Bags! Designs can be mixed for wholesale pricing.
|Dear Customer, |
week, we exhibited at "Taking Root", the National Farm to Cafeteria
Conference in Detroit, Michigan. The conference was a huge
success and we were inspired by ideas shared by conference participants
and the comments of key
note speaker Kathleen Merrigan, USDA Deputy
Secretary. We are working on some student/school friendly
banner designs and new products to help you promote and fundraise for
your farm to school program. At the conference, we had a
fantastic response to our "Fruit and
Veggie A to Z" memory match game. While it's currently
available to order as a customized product, we are pleased to announce
that this summer we will have the card game available to purchase in
quantities of a dozen. It's a great alphabet teaching tool
for fruits and vegetables with both the English and Spanish names
displayed on each card. We will send out an
update when it's available for purchase as an "in-stock" product in our

site. You can now browse all of Chris's
photos on-line, and either choose a photo to use on an Eat Local Food
product, or buy and download a photo to use in your own project.
This month, we are
starting a new feature in our newsletter. To share ideas and
success stories, we will highlight a customer's marketing idea or
promotion. We start off with John Muir Health who is doing some
great heart healthy promotions at their campus in Walnut Creek
Thank you for your business!

|John Muir Health Promotes Heart Healthy Eating|
|Eat Smart for your
We recently completed a beautful set of banners for John Muir Health with messages for
healthy eating and dietary habits. They have some terrific
multi-use marketing plans for the banners and their
coordinated customized table tents.
With the message of "heart health"
and the goal of promoting their new Cardiovascular Institute opening
next year, John Muir Health will have an offsite retreat event
with the theme "Healthy Lifestyles" for all of their Administration and
Directors. Executive Chef Alison Negrin will be providing a
heart-healthy cooking demo and they plan to use a banner to place in
front of her demo table. The customized
table tents will be placed on all the meeting tables that same day to
remind attendees of John Muir Health's recommendations for dietary
habits. A follow-up event is with their Champion
Physician speaking on healthy food choices and improving Physician
health along with one of their Dietitians speaking about on a heart
healthy topic. After the events are over
they plan to use the banners in their hospital cafes.
John Muir Health also uses Eat Local
Food bookmarks with healthy eating tips on the back as a giveaway item
on patient food trays and at health fairs.
