La San Marzano Celebrates the Holidays by Serving and Providing Meals to those in Need
La San Marzano, the makers of premium tomato sauces and canned tomato products, kicked off their first volunteer day in the United States at St. John's Soup Kitchen. Delicious pasta sauce and kind smiles were served up on December 5, 2018 as volunteers gave back to the local Newark community.
Knowing that close to one million people in New Jersey alone are struggling with hunger, La San Marzano donated a generous amount of pasta sauce and canned tomatoes to St. John's Soup Kitchen who provides over 700 meals daily to those who are hungry.
As La San Marzano establishes their brand of authentic pasta sauces and canned tomatoes in America, their mission is to also give back to the community through supporting local non-profit organizations, small businesses, and charities.
With distribution in the United States and a strong presence in New Jersey and New York, the company wanted to ensure that everyone gets a little taste of Italy.
"We are extremely proud and grateful to donate our time and product at St. John's Soup Kitchen," said Sergio Pagnini, General Manager at La Regina di San Marzano USA. "To provide a warm meal to those in need right in our own backyard, is a great way to kick off the holiday season."
The group cooked up a tasty Italian feast, where San Marzano employees prepared food, passed out hundreds of warm meals to those in the freezing cold and of course also assisted with clean up.
"San Marzano's most inspiring achievements are not measured in dollars, but in the spirit of our employees who volunteer their time to build and uphold healthy communities," said Pagnini. "In Italy, our culture is centered around wholesome food and we look forward to sharing our passion with those who need it most."
In addition to the St. John's Soup Kitchen project, San Marzano will be expanding its efforts across the region as the company continues to grow their roots nationwide.
