Winning with Janes Family Foods
As we mentioned last month, throughout 2013 we’ll be doing a random monthly draw for one FBC Member who will win a prize voucher from our Weekly News Sponsor, Janes Family Foods. It’s time to announce February’s winner – Jennifer Molnar from The Best Thing I Ever Ate. The lucky number from random.org was #14 which means, Jennifer was one of our very first members to ever join FBC!! Congrats! Melissa will be in touch shortly to get your prize on its way to you! And big thanks to Janes for sponsoring the draw!
