Fair Oaks, CA, 2016-Mar-23 — /EPR Retail News/ — Raley’s Family of Fine Stores has been named the official grocery partner of the Sacramento Kings. The legacy partnership will promote the two Sacramento organizations’ shared commitment to encourage health and wellness throughout the region.
As the Kings move into their newly built arena, Raley’s will join Golden 1 Center with two concessions kiosks that will offer healthy options to fans, such as nutritious fruits and vegetables sourced locally from within the Farm to Fork Capital of the country as well as fresh juices and other healthy snack options. This partnership will help Raley’s deliver on their commitment to be the source for healthy and local food choices for all customers’ lively events.
“We look forward to partnering with the Kings to enhance our service and support for the greater Sacramento community,” said Michael Teel, owner and CEO, Raley’s. “Our partnership will enable Raley’s to extend our reach outside of our store locations; throughout the region, into more communities, educating and extending food options for everyone, allowing individuals to make the choices right for them and their health.”
Michael Teel has also joined the Golden 1 Center Food Sourcing Steering Committee, dedicated to helping the Kings identify local producers committed to sustainability and quality. Julie Teel, local philanthropist, will work with the Kings Foundation to extend the #DoGood spirit throughout the region.
As both teams are passionate about making a meaningful difference in the lives of the individuals within the community, Raley’s and the Kings Foundation will also partner on projects targeting food literacy, regional gardens and nutritional resources.
“This new partnership with Raley’s is an extension of our commitment to sustainability and demonstrates the impact that local businesses can have on a community,” said Kings President Chris Granger. “Together, we’ll be able to highlight local sources that offer high-quality produce and promote the benefits of healthy selections in and out of the arena.”
