FRESNO – Daniel J. Doyle, chief executive officer of Central Valley Community Bank (CVCB), has announced the Valley Grown For You campaign – an initiative designed to promote San Joaquin Valley agribusiness and encourage individuals to buy local fresh and produced food products. The campaign is taking place now through July 31, 2014 and showcases food products produced in the San Joaquin Valley with an enter-to-win contest for a basket stocked full of products such as olive oil, raisins, wine, almond butter and more.
To enter the contest, participants can stop by any of the 20 conveniently located Central Valley Community Bank branches established throughout the Valley. There is also an opportunity to win a basket through social media; participants are asked to “like” the Central Valley Community Bank Facebook or follow it on Twitter (@CVCBNews) and then comment on one of the Valley Grown For You posts during the contest period. Participants must be 21 years of age or older and entries are limited to one entry per person in-branch and one through social media. Official rules for the contest are available at all Central Valley Community Bank branches, online at www.cvcb.com and through links on social media page posts dedicated to the Valley Grown For You campaign.
With the San Joaquin Valley consistently leading the nation in agricultural production, it serves as a hotbed for agribusiness, manufacturing innovation and economic impact. The Valley makes up 72 percent of California’s $44.7 billion agricultural value and the region supplies over 25 percent of the nation’s food, according to 2012 County Crop Reports.
Central Valley Community Bank partners with numerous growers, manufacturers, and packers, all of whom make the Valley the revered worldwide agricultural model it has become.
“This is just a small way for us to give back to the communities that we are so invested in,” said Dan Doyle, CEO for Central Valley Community Bank. “We’re excited to showcase some of the delicious local food products that come from right here in our own backyard.”
