Good Onions, Great Cause
Peri & Sons Farms’ annual “PINK” Breast Cancer Awareness promotion has been a great way for us to help spread the word about breast cancer research and prevention. In our own little way, we wanted to heighten awareness for the research being done to find a cure for breast cancer, but we also wanted to promote prevention through healthy eating habits.

The promotional packaging (available in October and upon request) includes consumer-engagement aspects such as a QR code that leads to a landing page (PSFPinkPromo.com) which features free “longevity” recipes expertly developed by cancer specialist and wellness cookbook author Rebecca Katz.

Also on the package, consumers are invited to vote online for the charity that will receive Peri & Sons’ annual donation ─ consumers choose and Peri & Sons makes the donation. We send consumers a little “Thank You” gift for taking the time to vote and we offer free healthy recipes. Recipients of our annual donation include top-rated organizations such as: National Breast Cancer Foundation, Susan G. Komen Northern Nevada and Breast Cancer Research Foundation.

We embrace the idea of healthy food being an important part of any cancer-fighting program and the concept that eating healthy is an important way to help prevent cancer and extend lifespan. That’s why we offer a wide variety of health recipes on our website and in our monthly e-recipes available when you join our Onion Obsession club.
