Harvest Hope's Douglas Groendyke and Save Mart's Betty Tomao Win April 2020 Snack Cover Contest
SACRAMENTO, CA - Well, shiver me timbers mateys! The Snack Cover Contest winners for April arrived on deck before I could even bring out my telescope! Our industry’s knack for finding buried treasure has blown me crew down in the latest round of our Find the Apple Contest. We thank ye for all the smiling faces—and some creative selfie-taking!—but alas, only two winners shall get our ANUK treasure of a $100 cash prize.
For the buy-side, we have a fresh face to claim our dubloons. Betty Tomao, Fresh Buyer, Produce Department - Supply Chain for The Save Mart Companies, slid in our inboxes to claim the buy-side title.
“Working from home during the COVID-19 pandemic can sometimes be all work and no play. When I saw the email from AndNowUKnow and in the subject line it read, ‘Snack Contest,’ I had to make some time to play!” Betty said, dropping some lyrical skills in turn. “It was a bit of a challenge trying to take a selfie and point out the logo on my computer, but I improvised, made it work, and WON! Not sure what I am going to do with my winnings yet, but I am sure it will involve my grandbabies. Thank you for making my day a little brighter. Hope you are staying safe, sane, and healthy.”
On the supply-side, we also have a new defender on board. Douglas Groendyke, Food Sourcing Coordinator for Harvest Hope Food Bank, was the first in our inbox with his keen eye on the prize.
“Thanks for the email. I’m so thankful that I have won, as I enjoy reading the articles in The Snack Magazine. It’s such a fun and exciting contest each month,” Douglas commented, sharing he felt both thankful and blessed. “I’ll be using the money for new workout sneakers as I’m in need of two pairs.”
If you didn’t have luck this round, not to worry! Subscribe to The Snack Magazine here (subscription is valued at $129 per year) and keep an eye out for future contest announcements on ANUK for another chance at winning our cash prize.
Remember that contest rules require submissions include a person pointing out the logo on the cover of The Snack Magazine, and the countdown only begins once we announce the contest in AndNowUKnow’s newsletter.
It does warm me heart to know our readers look forward to these contests as much as me and me crew. A hearty congratulations to our new winners! We’re off to bury our treasure in another Snack cover.
