Kids ages 12 and under are invited to become a Co+op Explorer and be eligible to receive one free piece of fruit per visit! To become a card-carrying Co+op Explorer, kids simply need to bring a parent or supervising adult to the front registers and ask to become a Co+op Explorer. After signing up, each child will be issued their very own super official Co+op Explorers card!
Then, once kids are signed up, here's how it works:
- Kids and parents stop by the front of the store, where we keep the Co+op Explorers fruit basket. Grab a piece of fruit to snack on while you shop!
- When you check out, please remind the cashier that your child or children have a free piece of fruit as part of Co+op Explorers so that we can track participation in the program.
- Kids will be issued a Fruit & Veggie Passport that they can fill out when they try new fruit. When your child completes their Fruit & Veggie Passport, they can turn it into one of our cashiers. These Co+op Explorers will receive a super official Co+op Explorer Salute in The Brine, our quarterly newsletter!
That's all there is to it! If you have any questions, please ask a staff member!
