Sample sized

Both locations of fancy food finders Gourmet Gallery, 1532 S. Boulevard in Edmond and 2820 NW 122nd Street in Oklahoma City, host tasting events 10 a.m.-4 p.m. June 18 featuring Terrapin Ridge Farms foods from Clearwater, Florida.

CEO Mary O’Donnell and her team will share samples of gourmet condiments, meal starters, dressings and dessert sauces.

At the same time, the stores will host a grilling demonstration on a grill provided by American Propane. Call 405-715-3663 or 405-751-7700 for more information.

Healthy shopping

Eating right and helping others aren’t mutually exclusive. Produce for Kids and Homeland grocery stores are working together to donate to Regional Food Bank of Oklahoma (RFBO).

Through June 30, when shoppers buy Green Giant Fresh, Delano Farms table grapes, Victory Garden grape tomatoes, Hass avocados and Vidalia onions, produce sponsors will donate a portion of the proceeds to RFBO.

Last year, the campaign raised more $19,000, sending food-filled backpacks home with 96 Oklahoma kids for a year.
