Farm Fresh expands its unique program to reward shoppers with discounts on groceries when they take greener trips

Farm Fresh® today announced the expansion of its unique partnership with NuRide and Hampton Roads Transit’s TRAFFIX program to provide individuals with discounts on Farm Fresh groceries when they take greener trips such as walking, biking, telecommuting, carpooling, vanpooling, or taking transit in lieu of driving alone.

“In 2010 Farm Fresh rewarded thousands of shoppers with discounts on groceries when they took greener trips, resulting in more than two million fewer miles driven and the prevention of 1,100 tons of emissions – an incredible accomplishment for our region,” said Gaelo de la Fuente, President of Farm Fresh. “We are so excited at the success of this partnership that we are expanding the goal to three million miles in 2011.”

“Farm Fresh’s partnership is instrumental in reducing traffic and emissions while rewarding individuals for doing their part,” said NuRide CEO Rick Steele, “and we are thrilled to continue this important partnership that benefits everyone with cleaner air, clearer roads and valuable savings on Farm Fresh groceries!”

To participate in the program, individuals can sign up for free on the NuRide web site at and earn points for taking greener trips such as walking, biking, telecommuting, carpooling, vanpooling, or taking Hampton Roads Transit. Points can then be redeemed for special rewards including $5 off $50 in Farm Fresh groceries and other rewards from great local companies like Cal’z Pizza, Kilwin’s, Kincaid’s, Mojito Café, Nauticus, Plow & Hearth, Qdoba, Quiznos, Taste Unlimited, Virginia Aquarium, Virginia Zoo, zpizza, and dozens of others.
