If you head out to the local supermarket today, you could help raise money for cancer research by just checking labels on the everyday products you buy.
In conjunction with Childhood Cancer Awareness Month, the Buy Alabama’s Best campaign is in full swing this week and will continue through the month of September. It is designed to inform and educate consumers on what products are made, produced, manufactured and/or headquartered in the state of Alabama.
You can help by looking for the Buy Alabama's Best logo and Children's of Alabama icon on products at grocery stores across the state. During September, a portion of the sale of participating Alabama products will go to Children's of Alabama to help find a cure for childhood cancer.
“When you are shopping in your local grocery store, remember to look for the Buy Alabama’s Best logo under Alabama food products on store shelves reminding you to buy the safest and most delicious foods available that are made right here in Alabama,” Ellie Taylor, executive director at Alabama Food Manufacturers and Producers Association, said. “To date our efforts have raised over $435,000.”
Retailers all over the state will be supporting this campaign in their stores with Alabama product displays, ads, signage, special promotions and will sell Children’s of Alabama icons to support the fight to find a cure for pediatric cancer.
Alabama food product sales have a $2 billion impact on Alabama's economy, tax base and, along with the grocery and food service industries, employ one out of every four Alabamians.
