On, Dec. 18, foster care families from Santa Ana, California-based Olive Crest were served a barbecue dinner hosted by food industry executives. The food was donated and served by Bristol Farms, Albertsons, Food4Less, Superior Grocers, Gelson’s and Smart & Final.
The foster families gathered to enjoy dinner and pick up the donated gifts that piled in over the past few weeks. Foster children were able to “shop” in the Christmas store for family members, while volunteers helped parents “sneak” donated gifts to their cars.
Pat Posey, VP of non-perishable procurement and merchandising at Bristol Farms, organized the community event.
