What does it take to stock the shelves of our supermarkets with local products? Join Tin Mountain for the monthly EcoForum Series to learn more about Hannaford Supermarket’s Close to Home Program. Jeff Cox and Kasey Harris will discuss obstacles Hannaford faces in sourcing more local products, other community involvement efforts, and the company’s sustainability policy. Come to Tin Mountain on Thursday, March 14 at 1pm to learn more.
Presenting on behalf of Hannaford will be Jeff Cox, Store Manager North Conway Hannaford and Kasey Harris from the Hannaford Sustainability & Corporate Responsibility Team. How does Hannaford choose what local products are included in the Close to Home Program and what constitutes ‘local’? What would it take to get your favorite local producers on their shelves? Have questions of your own? Please join us for this opportunity to discuss improving the local options for shoppers in the Mount Washington Valley.
The EcoForum lunchtime lecture series is sponsored by The Flatbread Company of North Conway, the Rock House Mountain Baker, and Frontside Grind Coffee. EcoForums are free and open to the public and are presented at noon on the second Thursday of each month at the Tin Mountain Nature Learning Center in Albany. The community is urged to attend to learn more about salient issues facing our natural environment and to hear the views of thought-provoking speakers.
