ChopChop Magazine Launches Bike Tour this Summer with Free Magazines, Healthy Snacks, and Other Giveaways to Promote Healthy Habits
Watertown, MA, May 27, 2015 - This summer, ChopChop: The Fun Cooking Magazine for Kids will be connecting with local communities at key events in Greater Boston with a custom cargo bike. The ChopChop “TRY-cycle” will be supplied with free copies of ChopChop Magazine, healthy snacks and other giveaways to encourage kids to try new foods and to stay active.
“We want to get our message of eating and cooking real food together as a family out in a memorable and fun way,” explains Sally Sampson, Founder of ChopChop. “The ChopChop Try-cycle is the perfect vehicle to do just that. Kids are drawn to this bike, which is colorful and fun. It gives us the perfect opportunity to talk to them about eating healthy and staying active.”
In addition to giving away copies of the magazine, ChopChop has partnered with companies such as Cabot Creamery, Backyard Farms and Melissa’s Produce to hand out free samples of fresh produce and cheese from the bike. ChopChop will be participating in family-focused events such as family festivals, farmers markets and school events throughout the summer.
