Be sure to visit your UFCW Local 400 represented union grocery stores: Shoppers, Kroger, Giant, Safeway, Bestway, Fresh & Green’s, and Bethesda Community Food Store for your food festivities. While you’re shopping, think about supporting the following companies whose UFCW-represented workers make some of the best barbecuing products around:
Grill up Omaha Steaks or flip National Beef patties to show off your sizzle skills. If you’re hungry for chicken, throw some Tyson Food’s chicken legs over the open flame. Not in the mood for grilling? Create your own sandwich between two slices of Merita bread using the wide variety of Boar’s Head’s cold cuts. Meat packing and processing workers represented by UFCW are behind the scenes making it happen at all of those companies!
If you go the burger route, make sure to top it off with Heinz Ketchup, French’s Mustard, Vlasic pickles and Eurofresh tomatoes, named “America’s Best Tasting Tomato.” Don’t forget the chips from Frito-Lay on the side! They’re all union-made!
It’s likely to be a scorcher this July 4th, so be sure to hydrate with Poland Spring water. Looking for more bubbles? Pick Pepsi. For the 21 and over crowd who wants to take a walk on the “wild” side, there’s Wild Turkey or Jim Beam Bourbon made by UFCW members in Kentucky.
