Knott’s Berry Farm Canned Food Drive Means Deep Discounts For You

Knotts Berry Farms

You wouldn’t know it by looking at him, but my dad is a total amusement park thrill junkie. Growing up we didn’t have a lot of money, especially with five kids, but every summer there was an amusement park that offered “x” of dollars off your ticket price if you brought in a specially marked soda can. As soon as those cans appeared we would load up in the car and drive 2.5 hours for a day of cheap thrills riding coaster after coaster. We would gorge on amusement park food and then head home. This year, America’s First Theme Park, Knott’s Berry Farm is offering your family a similar opportunity, but for an even better cause.

Knott’s Berry Farm partnered with the Orange County Food Bank to help the community.  There are an estimated 400,000 people at risk of facing hunger every month in Orange County, 42% of whom are children. This year marks Knott’s Berry Farm’s twelfth year coordinating the food drive that feeds thousands in the Orange County area.  The collected food will be used by the Orange County Food Bank to help meet the needs of Southern California families, and to provide needed donations beyond the traditional holiday period when the demand is great and food supply is low. Thanks to its guests, Knott’s Berry Farm has donated over 254 tons of food throughout the eleven years of partnership with the Orange County Food Bank.

Donate two or more canned food products at the theme park January 6 – January 31, 2014 in exchange for a $31.00 one day ticket to the park.  This special discount saves 50 percent off of the full priced admission of $62.00 at the Main Gate ticket booths.

If you haven’t been to Knott’s Berry Farms recently, they opened new family attractions in the theme park’s Boardwalk section. This includes 3 new attractions featuring the Coast Rider with a 52ft ascent and 1,339 feet of track filled with hairpin turns, twists and spins. Now is the perfect time to go and see what’s new.  Did I mention it was for a worthy cause?

    I love brands that give back not to look good but because they care.
