Tony Sarsam and Ready Pac Foods Team Donate 24K Chicken Caesar Bistro Bowl Salads to Hurricane Harvey Relief

Tuesday, August 29th, 2017

Though Harvey may have downgraded from its previous hurricane status into a tropical storm, the plight of all those affected in Texas continues. With helping hands uniting to aid those in need, Ready Pac Foods has led its own charge to uplift the Houston community.

Tony Sarsam, CEO, Ready Pac Foods“Giving back to the community has always been an important part of Ready Pac Foods culture and knowing there would be a big need in Texas with the storm coming, we had to get involved,” said CEO Tony Sarsam. “Our thoughts and prayers continue to be with those affected by Hurricane Harvey and the resulting devastating floods.”

Ready Pac Foods and Sarsam joined together with the Red Cross to get salads to those impacted by Harvey. Texans are currently struggling to find access to food amidst the storm, let alone products that will contribute to their health.

Ready Pac Foods loaded cases of 24,000 Chicken Caesar Bistro Bowls into a truck from its Irwindale, CA, plant. According to a statement from the company, Ready Pac Foods is working closely with The Red Cross to get the salads quickly to those in need. 

As our sister site, AndNowUKnow, recently reported, Harvey first made landfall in Southeastern Texas as a Category 4 hurricane. Excessive rainfall, which is not yet over, has caused flooding and extensive infrastructure damage in the region.

Donation Truck and team

Ready Pac Foods is joining a growing list of buy-side companies that are donating their efforts and tools to further help the stricken Texas community. That list includes notable names such as Amazon and Whole Foods, H-E-B, Starbucks, Walmart, Costco, and Dollar General, just to name a few.

As rain continues and the country bands together to support those affected, Deli Market News will report on the latest.
