Stater Bros.-FirstFruits partnership bears fruit — 19,600 pounds of it
Stater Bros. Markets recently donated 19,600 pounds of fresh apples to Feeding America Riverside I San Bernardino. The donation will ensure that local food banks are well-stocked with fresh produce. This donation is a result of Stater Bros. Markets’ participation in the Take a Bite Out of Hunger program sponsored by FirstFruits Marketing of Washington.
“We are extremely grateful to partner with FirstFruits Marketing and Feeding America Riverside | San Bernardino,” said Nancy Negrette, chairman and president of Stater Bros. Charities. “Through these partnerships, we are able to give back to our communities and get healthy food into the hands of our neighbors in need.”
“We all know this has been a tough year and we feel fortunate to be able to continue our Take a Bite Out of Hunger program now more than ever,” said Joe Vargas, director of marketing and analytics at FirstFruits Marketing. “We thank Stater Bros. for their continued partnership with the program.”
The Take a Bite Out of Hunger program uses retail displays and marketing materials to spread awareness of food insecurity throughout the country. With the help of FARSB and its local food pantry partners, the fresh produce will be distributed throughout local communities.
