Ahold Delhaize’s Giant Food has relaunched its Local Produce Boxes containing locally sourced, in-season produce sold exclusively through the grocery chain’s delivery service, Giant Delivers. For the second year in a row, the boxes are available throughout the summer without a subscription or commitment, the $20 boxes include six or more items from local farms in Maryland, Virginia and Delaware.
Box items vary weekly depending on farm harvests and what is in season. Participating farms include Baugher's Orchards and Houser Produce Farm of Maryland, Papen Farms and Fifer Orchards of Delaware, and Kirby Farms of Virginia. Shoppers can also save $5 by purchasing a Giant Delivers Local Meal Bundle, a specially curated recipe enabling customers to purchase all ingredients in one click and automatically save $5.
In addition, from July 8 through September 8, Giant Food loyalty members can earn 400 Flexible Rewards points every time they spend at least $20 on participating local products. Customers can use those points towards grocery savings at the grocery chain, or on gas at participating Giant Food and Shell fuel stations.
"Giant's first summer of offering the Local Produce Boxes was a huge success and our customers loved knowing that their produce was sourced locally by the best farms around our area," said Adenike Olaleye, senior manager of e-commerce merchandising at Giant Food, in a news release. "We're working with more farmers this year to offer an even wider range of produce options that will keep our customers pleased week after week."
The Local Produce Boxes are available weekly through September or while supplies last.
