This month, and in honor of back-to-school month, American Roland Food Corp. will donate a portion of the proceeds from the sale of Steel Cut Oats and Quick-Cooking Oats at Fairway Markets in Douglaston, Red Hook and Pelham to Food Bank For New York City (FBNYC). Roland Steel Cut Oats are made from the finest quality all-natural oats. With a hearty texture and a rich, nutty taste, Steel Cut Oats are a great choice for back-to-school breakfasts, according to a company news release.
“We are proud to support of Food Bank For New York City,” said Lisa Kartzman, director of public relations for Roland Foods. “Roland Foods has a long history of supporting charitable organizations, and as a New York-based company the FBNYC is a particularly important cause for us.”
FBNYC is one of the country’s largest food banks, with the mission of ending hunger in New York City through food and information organization and community support. There are 2.9 million New Yorkers who experience difficulty affording food—an astounding number and one that continues to increase as the donated food supply drops to an all-time low and food costs skyrocket.
American Roland Food Corp. is a Manhattan-based food import company. After more than 77 years in the business, American Roland Food Corp. carries more than 1,400 imported food products.
