Chefs from Cinnaminson used Weber grills to demonstrate how to grill Turbana plantains in various ways. Customers were able to sample grilled plantains, and interact with Learning Through Gardening to see how the initiative is benefitting local schools.
Learning Through Gardening is supported by Turbana’s ongoing “Growing Smiles, Sharing Goodness” movement.
Through this immersive grilling experience, Turbana and Weber are placing unfamiliar produce in a familiar context, and teach consumers how versatile the fruit can be.
Turbana and Weber are also running a contest that provides ShopRite shoppers all over the country the opportunity to win a Weber gas grill.
At any ShopRite store, guests who purchase Turbana plantains using their Price Plus Club cards during the promotional period of June 20-Aug. 31 will be automatically entered to win.
Turbana is rallying its “Growing Smiles, Sharing Goodness” movement, which seeks to inspire people to live healthier and more conscious lives.
For every Turbana plantain that is purchased during the period of the promotion, Turbana will donate a portion of the proceeds to the New Jersey Agricultural Society’s Learning Through Gardening program.
This elementary school program provides students with the resources to create school gardens, and educates them on reasons to care for the environment and ways to integrate fresh produce into their diets.
Beyond that, Turbana will also be displaying Learning Through Gardening garden beds at each grilling event, along with a sharing wall for students in the program to display what they’ve gained from the experience.
