HILLSIDE — In the wake of the destruction of Hurricane Sandy, American Roland Food Corp. will donate 600 cases (approximately 180,000 servings) of Steel Cut Oatmeal to the Community Food Bank of New Jersey, located in Hillside.
“Roland Foods was one of the lucky ones,” said Lisa Kartzman, director of Public Relations. “Our facility in Dayton, NJ was unharmed from the storm. We were operational the day after the storm to handle our customers’ orders across the U.S. However, many of our New Jersey and New York based staff experienced property damage and in three cases property loss. Some of our people are still without power and heat as the next storm is coming into view. We feel the pain of our neighbors and want to offer the possibility of a warm, nourishing meal. Our steel cut oatmeal is healthy, nutritious and quick cooking.”
American Roland Food Corp. supports a variety of charitable organizations throughout the year, including many hunger relief organizations and events, but in light of the millions of Metro New York residents still without power and the billions of dollars of damages, Roland Foods hopes this donation will serve as a small token of support in this time of devastation.
The Community Food Bank of New Jersey distributes 39 million pounds of food and groceries a year, ultimately serving 1,500 non-profit programs including 436 programs served by its Partner Distribution Organizations. Through their combined efforts, they help to feed 900,000 low-income people in 18 of New Jersey’s 21 counties.
American Roland Food Corp. is a Manhattan-based food import company, specializing in high quality specialty products.
