Pink Ribbon Program
Pink Ribbon Produce, a cause-marketing in-store promotion now in its eighth year, is uniting the produce industry in the fight against breast cancer.
This program is designed to bring awareness through education and fundraising for continued breast cancer research. It has grown each year in its reach of retail support as well as supplier sponsors. The fundraising efforts of Pink Ribbon Produce support breast cancer research, education and screenings. This year Pink Ribbon Produce is teaming with the National Breast Cancer Foundation, Inc.
Using in-store, interactive, and online components in conjunction with a public relations campaign, Pink Ribbon Produce drives consumer awareness through the produce departments at Harris Teeter, Meijer and Price Chopper retailers. Shoppers can pick up information on healthy living and early breast cancer detection and support the Pink Ribbon Produce promotion by purchasing participating supplier products.
Donations are raised through the participating produce suppliers who donate a flat dollar amount and funds raised through our online campaign during the promotion dates. All donations support the National Breast Cancer Foundation, Inc. and the money raised is kept in the local communities.
If breast cancer is found early, there are more treatment options and a better chance for survival. A mammogram can find breast cancer before it can be felt. However, it is not perfect. But, when mammography is combined with clinical breast exam your chances for finding cancer are even greater.
Remember, even if you feel healthy now, just being a woman and getting older puts you at risk for breast cancer. Getting checked regularly can put your mind at ease. Finding cancer early may save your life.
