Price Rite donates

Foodshare's Food Sourcing Manager, Ernie Pitti, sent me this e-mail this morning:

"Last Thursday, I had the pleasure of meeting with Bill Britton, VP of Human Resources, Melinda LaChappelle, VP of Operations, and Kathy Freedman, of their regional Human Resources Dept. in Price Rite's regional office in Wethersfield.  We met to discuss an opportunity to recover unsalable food from their stores. Concerned for the health and welfare of the many Connecticut residents who are food insecure they met with me to learn how to pursue this objective while ensuring that all the food recovered would be handled safely and redistributed quickly.

"Within a short time, they agreed to start with a test store, leaving Melinda and I to hammer out the details of the project which should start in May.  To further add to the excitement, and to underscore Price Rite's commitment to helping Foodshare in our mission to end hunger, Melinda and Kathy (pictured from left to right)presented me with a check for $1,000.

"Thank you Price Rite for initiating this test and for your very generous donation!"
