- by Jessica Donnel
IRWINDALE, CA – In a move to lend a helping hand to those affected by the recent flooding in Louisiana, Ready Pac Foods has graciously donated 30,000 of its freshly-made Bistro® Salad Bowls to the relief effort. The complete meal salads with protein will be distributed by the American Red Cross Disaster Relief teams in the region over the next two weeks.
“We saw the suffering and knew we had to do something to lend a hand,” explained Tony Sarsam, Ready Pac Foods’ Chief Executive Officer, about the reason behind the large charitable donation.
Ready Pac Foods, who has recently penned a new business partnership with Domino’s to provide fresh salads, donated more than 7,000 of those branded salads within the region through the American Red Cross as well.
“We hope that this care package will provide a little comfort during this difficult time, and we continue to send our thoughts and prayers to those affected by the devastating floods,” Sarsam added.
In its company press release, Ready Pac Foods urged both customers and associates who wish to help to text “LAFLOODS” to 90999, thereby donating $10 to American Red Cross Disaster Relief. Those interested in helping can also visit the American Red Cross website at www.redcross.org to learn more.
