BURNABY, BC, Sept. 14 /CNW/ - There may be no such thing as a free lunch,
but for BCAA members this September there is such a thing as a free appetizer
or dessert. BCAA is serving up support for "Eat BC!" - a campaign raising
awareness of B.C. foods and beverages - and, in return, BCAA members will be
offered a free "appy" or dessert when purchasing an "Eat BC!" signature dish
at participating restaurants, September 14-30th.
"BCAA is uniquely British Columbian with deep roots in many communities,"
says Tracey MacLennan, BCAA loyalty services manager. "We're delighted,
therefore, to support the B.C. food and beverage industry, and invite BCAA
members to sample some tasty treats produced right in their own backyards."
To receive the complimentary dish, members simply need to show their
membership card when ordering an Eat BC! signature item at one of the 150
"This is just another way BCAA members can realize great everyday
savings," adds MacLennan. "What's more, it's perfect for members wanting to
explore their province and enjoy all aspects of what B.C. has to offer."
In addition to the free appetizer or dessert, BCAA members can
participate in a prize draw to win a 12-month dining package for two, $1,000
in free gas from Husky and Mohawk and a $250 gift certificate for MarketPlace
The Eat BC! campaign is hosted by the BC Restaurant and Foodservices
Association in partnership with BCAA, the BC Agriculture Council, the Province
of British Columbia and the Investments Agriculture Foundation.
