Bushwick Commission supports pediatric health with Virginia Grown initiative

Bushwick Commission, a fourth-generation supplier of fresh potatoes and vegetables, recently concluded a promotion in Virginia that benefits the Children’s Hospital of The King’s Daughters. 

Addressing acute pediatric care and disease while also focusing on childhood obesity and mental health, King’s Daughters employs over 4,000 people and serves more than 5,000 patients annually. The hospital prioritizes food and wellness as central elements to the well-being of children and families in Virginia.

This is the third annual Virginia Grown initiative that Bushwick has participated in. Promoted on KwikLok packaging, the program invited shoppers to learn more about the farm and family behind the potatoes and to scan a QR code for a chance to win a cash gift card. Over 1,000 shoppers participated in the four-week program.

Bushwick Commission logo“We are deeply committed to supporting the communities we serve,” said Ken Gray, vice president of sales and marketing at Bushwick. “By engaging shoppers, we not only promote locally grown produce but also support the essential pediatric care and wellness services provided by King’s Daughters.”

Dublin Farms, a family-owned business with a history dating back to 1876, provided the potatoes featured in this promotion.
