So many partners under one roof
With funding support from CBS Hartford Radio advertisers—Price Chopper Supermarkets, Johnson Brunetti, Jefferson Radiology, Kia of East Hartford, and Brown Paindiris & Scott—Foodshare is improving access to healthy food for many households across the region through our retail food rescue program.
“Foodshare is so grateful for the generous support of CBS Radio and our local advertising sponsors,” said James Arena -DeRosa, Food share President & CEO. “Not only is the funding imperative for ensuring all of our neighbors have access to healthy food, but informing thousands of listeners across the region about this important work is helping to garner new support in the fight against hunger.”
These same sponsors bolstered their financial support with a volunteer day during #HungerActionMonth, this past Friday. Representatives from CBS Radio—including DJ Buck, of Hot 93.7 fame—and participating sponsors volunteered their time to inspect and sort through donated food items at Foodshare’s main facility in Bloomfield.
“As a business dedicated to helping people feed and care for themselves and their families, Price Chopper is proud to support the Retail Food Rescue program, which helps to rescue and distribute nutritious foods to hungry families in Greater Hartford.” said Mona Golub, Vice President of Public Relations and Consumer Services at Price Chopper Supermarkets.
