WOOSTER, OHIO – September 17, 2019

Buehler’s Fresh Foods will be promoting a Life is Why We Give campaign at the registers of all 13 stores from September 15 – October 13, 2019 asking customers to buy a $1, $3 or $5 hearts in support of the American Heart Association of Stark and Wayne counties.

Customers are encouraged to write their ‘WHY’ on the heart and hearts will be posted at each of the stores to raise awareness.  Additionally, wallet cards with the signs of heart attack and stroke will be available for free while supplies last.

“Buehler’s Fresh Foods, a local and employee owned company, is excited to partner with the American Heart Association,” stated Mike Davidson, Buehler’s Executive Vice President of Retail Operations.  “The partnership will educate our associates and customers in regard to the impact that heart disease has on the communities we serve. The American Heart Association is a nationally recognized brand that aligns with Buehler’s Fresh Foods goal to be a first stop for Healthy Living in the communities we serve.”

Davidson further expressed that the Buehler’s Fresh Foods customers have always participated in our campaigns and support the communities in which they live.   We have very caring and giving customers. We look forward to working together.

About the Life is Why We Give campaign:

We want everyone to experience more of  life’s precious moments. To do that, we must be healthy — in heart and mind. It’s why we’ve made better heart and brain health our mission. And together, we’ve made an extraordinary impact. But we’re just beginning. Until the world is free of heart disease and stroke, we’ll work together to make a healthier, longer life possible for everyone. Why do we do what we do? Because we’re the American Heart Association. And life is why.

About the American Heart Association:

The American Heart Association is devoted to saving people from heart disease and stroke – the two leading causes of death in the world. The AHA teams with millions of volunteers to fund innovative research, fight for stronger public health policies, and provide lifesaving tools and information to prevent and treat these diseases.

In Stark and Wayne counties alone, heart disease and stroke claim 2,500 lives every year. But we are fighting back. In the last year alone, the American Heart Association has trained more than 22,000 community members in CPR, reached more than 21,000 people through blood pressure screenings and funded $22.3 million dollars for research. At the state level, the American Heart Association helped pass Tobacco 21, a law that raises the legal age to buy cigarettes, vape pens and other tobacco products from 18 to 21.

Produce Perks Program Expands to Three New Buehler’s Locations

Fresh fruits and vegetables now more accessible for SNAP shoppers in Coshocton and Tuscarawas counties

September 1, 2019—For families who rely on SNAP (Food Stamps), fresh produce is often off the table – literally. But in Coshocton and Tuscarawas Counties, that’s about to change. A new program is bringing “produce-purchasing power” to the families who need it most.

Now families shopping with SNAP at the Coshocton, Dover, and New Philadelphia locations of Buehler’s Fresh Foods will receive up to $10 extra – per visit – to spend on fruits and vegetables. It’s all because of the Produce Perks Program.

We all know we should eat fruits and vegetables daily, but families struggling with poverty often simply cannot afford them. As a result, the same people forced to skip meals are also likely to suffer from obesity and diabetes—because the foods they can afford lead to high rates of diet-related disease. But when people can afford fresh produce, they buy it. That’s where this program comes in.

Each time SNAP customers spend at least $5 on fresh produce at Buehler’s, they will receive a $5 coupon for more fresh fruits and vegetables. Customers who spend more than $10 will receive a $10 coupon. There’s no enrollment or paperwork to fill out; shoppers receive the benefit automatically. Three additional Buehler’s Fresh Foods locations (stores in Coshocton, Dover, and New Philadelphia) will distribute produce vouchers starting on September 1, 2019. These stores join the two stores in Wooster and one in Orville that already offer the program.

Founded in 1929, Buehler’s Fresh Foods is an employee-owned supermarket chain with 13 locations in northeast Ohio.

Produce Perks is Ohio’s nutrition incentive program, empowering SNAP recipients to purchase fresh, healthy fruits and vegetables from Ohio farmers’ markets and grocery-retailers across the state. The program provides a $1-for-$1 match for shoppers using SNAP/EBT to buy healthy produce. Produce Perks is operational at over 100 locations statewide and generated over $800,000 in sales in 2018. Produce Perks increases affordable access to healthy foods, supports Ohio farmers, and strengthens local economies.

“Produce Perks Midwest is thrilled to have Buehler’s Fresh Foods expand their participation in the Produce Perks program. We recognize their leadership amongst Ohio grocery-retailers and appreciate their commitment to providing affordable access to healthy foods. We’re excited to be working with a retail partner that shares our values toward building equitable communities and resilient food systems.” -Tevis Foreman, Executive Director, Produce Perks Midwest.
