FRESH THYME: A HEALTHY, FRESH AND ORGANIC WAY TO GROCERY SHOP

Sun, 07/17/2016 - 8:00 AM | by Pete Mackin

Here at Little Red Door we focus on being active, eating healthy and building strong partnerships in our community.  Over the past few months we have partnered with Fresh Thyme Farmers Market for their Cultivate Community events. Little Red Door staff members were able to go to local Fresh Thyme stores and chat with shoppers about healthy lifestyle choices, answer questions about Little Red Door and even sample some of their tasty and organic food! On June 7th and July 12th, between the hours of 4-7PM, Little Red Door received 5% of all proceeds from 5 local Fresh Thyme Farmers Market stores!  This helped to raised nearly $5,000 for Little Red Door!

Fresh Thyme is on a mission to improve the way our communities eat by offering fresh and healthy food at amazing values -all in a vibrant and fun shopping environment.  The foundation of healthy eating is often based on incorporating more fresh fruits and vegetables in our diets.  Here at Little Red Door, we are committed to making the most of life and the least of cancer by adding small lifestyle changes into our daily routine.  These small lifestyle changes could include adding one more fruit or vegetable into your diet each day.  Many fruits are high in Vitamin C, an antioxidant, which has been linked to a reduced risk of stomach, colon, esophagus, bladder, breast, and cervical cancer if consumed in a regular diet.  According to statistics, those who eat five or more servings of fruits and vegetables a day could have a 9% lower risk of developing cancer.

The Cultivate Community event is one example of the variety of different events that Little Red Door participates in throughout the year. Other events include restaurant fundraisers, golf outings, birthday parties and more. We’re so grateful to everyone who decides to host a fundraiser in honor of Little Red Door.
