Carando® and Tops Friendly Markets Partner to Donate Spiral Sliced Hams to the Food Bank of WNY



BUFFALO
Wednesday, December 6th, 2017

Tops Friendly Markets partnered with Carando®, the artisan brand of Classic Italian Meats, to donate 500 spiral sliced hams to the Food Bank of WNY during their 13th annual Food 2 Families event.

Carando and Tops Friendly Markets presented 65 cases of Carando spiral sliced hams to the food bank at one of the six stores participating in the Food 2 Families event. During the months of November and December, Tops Friendly Markets sold Brown Bags of Hope to benefit the food bank leading up to the outdoor food and fund drive. This donation from Carando will help complete 500 holiday meals for families in need, providing each with a ham to enjoy.

Michael Baughman, Director of Marketing, Smithfield Foods"Carando stands for quality, heritage, and tradition, and has a long history of community involvement. We are proud to be in our second year of contributing to the Food Bank of WNY," said Michael Baughman, Smithfield Foods Director of Marketing. "We are extremely grateful for partners like Tops Friendly Markets who place the same importance on supporting our neighbors in need throughout the year, but especially during the holidays."

Helping as many as 135,000 individuals each month, the Food Bank of WNY distributes food to 341 member agencies in Cattaraugus, Chautauqua, Erie, and Niagara counties. The food is dispersed to local families in need through food pantries, soup kitchens, shelters, youth programs, group homes, and senior centers.

This donation was made as part of the Carando Cares program, an ongoing campaign established in 2013 to support organizations making a positive difference in local communities. Carando Cares has made monetary and in-kind donations of more than $250,000 since the program's inception.
