We love to support our Local Partners and help them thrive in our stores AND in our community! This got us thinking... A lot of local businesses have a great story to tell our customers, and we decided to help them tell it!
Our Living Well Eating Smart Wellness Team of Registered Dietitians, Carrie Taylor and Andrea Luttrell, along with our Product Buyers, are hitting the road to visit some of our amazing local partners. Join them as they experience first-hand what goes into making some of our favorite products. From learning how a beekeeper gets his honey, to harvesting cranberries in a cranberry bog, our dietitian team is learning a lot when they dive behind-the-scenes...and so can you! Tag along with them on their #BigYLocalLove adventures below!
