The Fresh Market

Specialty Grocer Announces Second Annual Reusable Shopping Bag Design Contest

WHO: The Fresh Market, a neighborhood specialty grocer

WHAT: The Fresh Market Design Our Bag Challenge
Think you have what it takes to design The Fresh Market’s next reusable shopping bag? The company is on a nationwide search for a fun new design for its 2014 bag, which will benefit Share Our Strength’s “No Kid Hungry®” campaign! Last year’s inaugural “Design Our Bag Challenge” winning bags have raised over $50,000 for No Kid Hungry, a national nonprofit working to end childhood hunger in America. Now a year later, The Fresh Market is excited to showcase more children’s artwork on its limited edition reusable shopping bags. The Fresh Market will donate 50% of the retail price of each bag sold to No Kid Hungry, with a minimum donation of $150,000 in 2014.

Children ages 15 and under who have a love for both food and art can submit a drawing of their favorite product sold at The Fresh Market stores. The top two artists, voted on by The Fresh Market employees, will have their designs printed on reusable shopping bags, which will be sold in The Fresh Market stores across the country in 2014.

In addition to having their drawings featured on the company’s reusable shopping bag, the winners of the Design Our Bag Challenge will each receive a $200 gift card for The Fresh Market, a kid-friendly goodie bag filled with an artist kit and other edible treats, and accolades via The Fresh Market’s social media channels. In addition, each of The Fresh Market’s stores nationwide will award their stores’ top two finalists a $50 gift card.

WHEN: January 1, 2014 – January 28, 2014
