On March 9, independent distributor organization AD participated in an event supporting Share Food Program and Sharing Excess, two Philadelphia-area nonprofits that provide fresh food and nonperishable items to community members experiencing food insecurity.
AD associates from the U.S., Canada and Mexico packaged and prepared more than 700 boxes of food for Share Food Program’s Senior Food Box Program and National School Lunch Program.
Partnering with Sharing Excess, AD assembled a pop-up food market in the Norristown Public Library to distribute free fresh produce. AD associates distributed 5,000 pounds of fruit and vegetables at the market.
“Our Giving Back Committee and all our associates live out AD’s core value of Giving Back with their incredible volunteer efforts and generous contributions to local nonprofit organizations throughout the year,” said Bill Weisberg, AD Chairman & CEO. “Both Share Food Program and Sharing Excess make a life-changing difference bringing much-needed food to our local communities, and we’re proud to support their missions.”
AD presented representatives from Share Food Program and Sharing Excess with checks for $5,000 each in support of their missions. The donated funds were 100% contributed by AD associates through multiple fundraising activities, the company said.
