The mercury’s rising and the Fourth of July is almost here. That means it’s time to cool down with ripe, juicy melons! We’re beating the heat this summer with a Greenling Melon Festival. For the next few weeks, we’ll be sharing lots of melon ideas, melon farmer profiles, and hosting a “Show Us Your Melon Recipe!” contest. We’re also helping families in need with a “Buy One, Give One,” sale on watermelons next week.
For every watermelon that we sell next week, we’ll donate another to the Capital Area Food Bank or the North Texas Food Bank. These local, organic watermelons will surely bring a smile (and lots of nutrition) to a family in need! Plus, we’re donating them to the Food Banks in time for the Fourth of July holiday. You don’t need to do anything unusual to take advantage of this special offer—simply add a watermelon to your grocery order and we’ll send one to the the Food Bank in your region. Kinda like TOMS shoes, but tastes way better! If you’re traveling next week but still want to help, you can add a $5 donation to the Capital Area Food Bank or North Texas Food Bank to your next grocery order.
The best part about getting a watermelon from Greenling (besides the Karmic boost) is that you won’t need to lug that beast home to your kitchen! Buying a melon at the grocery store can be a bust. It’s not true that lugging it around in your cart, to your car, and finally home actually makes it sweeter. And the first time it crushes that bread or bag of chips it becomes a bittersweet affair. But no longer because we’ve got big, burly men to carry these amazingly delicious boulders right to your door (and into your kitchen if you like).
