When Jennifer Garner isn’t on set filming Hollywood’s next hottest movie, she’s typically spotted going to church with her kids or grabbing dinner around Los Angeles with her new beau, John Miller. But the Peppermint actress was recently caught spending her free time handing out kid-friendly smoothies at a Costco on Wednesday, February 27.
The delicious and healthy beverage that the 46-year-old was promoting isn’t just any regular fruity drink — it’s one from her organic baby food line! Jen cofounded Once Upon a Farm, an organic food brand for babies, toddlers and kids, in 2017 with partners Cassandra Curtis, Ari Raz and former Annie Homegrown’s president John Foraker.

“Hello, @costco. Our cofounder @jennifer.garner served up smoothie samples this week! Look for our #coldpressed #smoothie 8-packs in select Los Angeles & Bay Area stores,” the brand’s Instagram page shared to social media at the time of her visit along with a collage of photos. In the pics, the Alias star can be seen smiling with customers as she dons a cute red apron with the Once Upon a Farm logo on the front.
This isn’t the first time that the mom-of-three –— who shares kids Violet, 13, Seraphina, 10, and Samuel, 7, with ex Ben Affleck — has spent her day at a grocery store inspiring customers to try her products. In August 2018, Jen made an appearance at a Kroger store in Cincinnati, Ohio and didn’t necessarily get the reaction she was hoping for. “I’m really busy,” one shopper told the brunette beauty as she tried to swoon her with the scrumptious smoothie.
It seems like the rejection didn’t hurt Once Upon a Farm’s business considering fans of the 13 Going on 30 star were begging her to stock the stores near them with her brand’s healthy products. “I would be thrilled to see you guys in San Diego! We love @onceuponafarm and would love to buy it wholesale at @costco!” one fan wrote in the post’s comments section. “Can’t wait for you to hopefully someday get into Sam’s Club as well! Love from Florida,” said another.
By the looks of it, Jen won’t stop until Once Upon a Far” is available in every food store. “As a mom-of-three and Save the Children artist ambassador, I am passionate about childhood nutrition and making sure we are leaving a healthier and happier planet for the next generation,” she said in a statement in 2017. “Once Upon a Farm helps parents keep their promise to deliver the best nourishment for their children’s bodies and souls.”
