“EatGR1” Best Instagram account 2017 (EatGR is much more than just a Facebook Group)

We are super excited to announce that EatGR1 just won the BEST IN  THE WEST INSTAGRAM ACCOUNT 2017

A lot of people only think of EatGR as a Facebook group of 22,000 people used to get ideas of where to discover new places or food items to eat. Although it is certainly that, it is a lot more.

1. We have a sister Facebook page (EatGR). We typically reserve this page for community food announcements and news about the group. We have 8100 people on this page. https://www.facebook.com/eatgr1.

2. Our award winning Instagram account (EatGR1) https://instagram.com/eatgr1/ where I stage most of the photos that are added to EatGR. You can get food previews frequently days before they are posted on the main group. We have over 9700 photos and over 5700 people there. (We are trying to grow our Instagram following to 20,000, so spread the word)

3. We have a Twitter account (EatGR1) with nearly 1000 followers where we tweet out all of our Instagram posts. https://twitter.com/EatGR1.

7. When I sell a home (my day job), we do a FOODNAMI! Where I take several group members out and pay for them to try a new food item.

8. We do food giveaways.

9. We have a chosen charity (Feeding America West Michigan) http://www.feedingamericawestmichigan.org/ who we partner with periodically to help feed those in need.

10. We have a webpage (EatGR.com).

The webpage offers a ROULETTE option for those who cannot make up their mind about where to eat. Press the button, and off you go.

EatGR is a lot more than just a Facebook group with a lot of ancillary features and options that you might find useful beyond the day to day conversation.
