Free Fruit for Kids with VFC's New Co+op Explorers Program!

BlogImage-2019-Coop Explorers-1Kids ages 12 and under are invited to become a VFC Co+op Explorer and be eligible to receive one piece of fruit per visit! To become a card-carrying Co+op Explorer, kids simply need to bring a parent or supervising adult to the customer service counter and ask to become a Co+op Explorer. Each child will be issued their very own super official Co+op Explorers card!

Then, once kids are signed up, here’s how it works:

1. Kids and parents stop in the produce department and ask for your Co+op Explorers fruit. The produce worker will put a sticker on your child’s shirt or jacket so that staff knows your child or children
are eating Co+op Explorers fruit, and they can account for it at the checkout stations. Then, each child is eligible to receive the fruit (selection is determined by the produce department), and can enjoy eating it while you shop.

2. When you check out, please remind the cashier that your child or children ate free fruit as part of Co+op Explorers so that we can track participation in the program.

That’s all there is to it! It’s a way to encourage kids to try fresh new foods, and make coming to the Co-op fun! If you have any questions, please ask any produce staff member.
