Swedesboro, NJ (PRWEB) December 03, 2013
During the holidays, it's difficult not to become aware of the millions of families across the country wondering where their next meals are going to come from. Rastelli Direct, an online provider of gourmet food, is well aware of this, which is why they're heavily emphasizing the benefits of their Meal 4 a Meal program in the coming weeks. The Meal 4 a Meal program is a grassroots initiative designed to maximize the amount of resources for families in need by eliminating third party donation practices. For every Rastelli Direct product sold, a meal is provided to a family in need, which averages out to five donated meals per order.
Here's how it works: Meal 4 a Meal works with twelve major food banks, including Philabundance, the Food Bank for New York City, the Greater Boston Food Bank, and more. Each food bank is assigned a month, and Rastelli donates all the raised donations for that month to the designated food bank.
"Rastelli Direct's Meal 4 a Meal program grants food resources to thousands of families each month, but it's especially effective around this time of year," says Michael Carr, Rastelli Direct's Marketing & PR Director. "Knowing that their purchase provides meals for families in need gives our customers something extra to feel good about during the holiday season."
The Meal 4 a Meal program is a good way for customers to double their giving this holiday season. Their gourmet meats and seafood products make great gifts or holiday dinners, and less fortunate families get to enjoy their gifts, too.
Rastelli Direct’s Meal 4 A Meal Program launched in May 2012 with a mission to provide meals as well as financial support to Food Banks around the country. Our unique community reinvestment campaign focuses on finding Food Bank organizations that exhibit the greatest practices as well as major innovations in giving and a dedication to the health and wellness of the families that they serve.
