Carando® Serves Hometown Heroes an Easter Feast


The unsung heroes of the Springfield, Massachusetts, police department received an Easter lunch courtesy of Carando® Classic Italian Meats. Over 200 officers were served what the company said was a well-deserved holiday meal.

The Italian meats company served up a tasty spread of Carando premium dinner hams, green beans, oven roasted potatoes, mac & cheese, and chocolate chip cookies, according to a press release.

"These men and women are true hometown heroes," Mike Sargent, Sr. Brand Manager of Carando, said in the release. "We've seen their acts of kindness and courage within our city. They've gone above and beyond the call of duty to keep our friends and families safe and we certainly appreciate that. We're proud to honor them with an Easter lunch."

The feast was provided as part of the company’s “Carando Cares” initiative.

"The 'Carando Cares' campaign is an important part of our mission to give back and support our local community," Sargent said. "Any time we can show our thanks for the hard work, generosity and helpfulness that make a difference in our communities, we're honored to do so."

“Carando Cares” is an ongoing campaign that endeavors to reward those making a positive difference in New England communities since its inception in 2013.

In the two years since, Carando has reportedly delivered hams to Boston's fire stations, served an Easter dinner to the children at Shriners Hospital for Children-Boston, treated the Big Brothers Big Sisters of Southern Maine to a baseball game, and served Christmas dinners to Springfield firefighters and Barnes Air National Guard Base in Westfield, Massachusetts.

This is a program Sargent said the company looks forward to continuing for years to come.
