Kin’s Farm Market pays it forward and gives back to the community

Richmond, BC – January 17, 2017 – Kin’s Farm Market is pleased to announce an exciting new marketing program in support of the Heart & Stroke.

Officially launched on November 15, 2016, this year-long program will reflect financial support totaling $20,000 from the sales of Kin’s Farm Market’s Monthly Featured Product selected from their assortment of fresh fruits and vegetables.

As it approaches its 30th anniversary in 2017, Kin’s Farm Market continues to strive to give back to the communities that have supported them throughout their growth from one table at the Granville Island Public Market to its current network of 29 locations in the lower mainland.

Kin’s commitment to community and its advocacy for healthy eating lend a perfect fit for Heart & Stroke.
“We’re excited to see more employers like Kin’s Farm Market taking on initiatives that promote healthy eating to improve overall nutrition of Canadians,” says Adrienne Bakker, CEO, Heart & Stroke, BC & Yukon. “Heart and Stroke encourages all Canadians to aim for 7 to 10 servings of fruits and vegetables every day – The more of us in the community that work together to encourage healthy eating habits, the closer we get to our goal – Canadians free of heart disease and stroke. Together, we’re making it happen.”

“Inspiring Canadians to eat and be healthy has always been a passion of Kin’s Farm Market and we are ecstatic to reinforce this mission through our partnership with the Heart & Stroke Foundation of Canada. Consuming ample amounts of fresh fruits and vegetables is the cornerstone of a nutritious and balanced diet. As BC’s leader in fresh produce, we could not be more proud to champion our goals with HSF towards a healthier Canada.” – Kin Wah Leung, President, Kin’s Farm Market
