Bashas’ Celebrates Fat Tuesday by Giving Back
February 16 @ 6:00 am
Arizonans can support local families served by St. Vincent de Paul when they purchase delicious Paczki at Bashas’ grocery stores on Fat Tuesday. Bashas’ will donate 10 percent of all Paczki sales on Tuesday, Feb. 16, to St. Vincent de Paul. The funds will help families throughout the state who are served by the nonprofit organization.
Paczki are Polish pastries typically enjoyed on Fat Tuesday. Historically, families would use up the fat, sugar, eggs and fruit in the house, as these items were forbidden during the Lenten season. Bashas’ is the only grocer in town that makes Paczki from scratch. Paczki are glazed or sugared, and filled with lemon, raspberry or custard filling. Glazed Paczki with raisins are especially popular.
Paczki are on sale at Bashas’ now. Pick up a half-dozen Paczki for $2.99, or an individual Paczek (“Poon-check”) for 75 cents. A coupon for free dozen Bashas’ donuts will randomly be inserted into the bottom of Paczki boxes; two lucky customers per store will win.
Plus, take a #PaczkiSelfie and post it on social media for a chance to win a $150 Bashas’ gift card! Be sure to tag Bashas’ Supermarkets on each:
