SCHILLER PARK, Ill.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Enjoy Life Foods, a leading manufacturer of gluten-free and allergy-friendly products in North America, and one of the few companies that produces its products in a dedicated nut and gluten-free facility, has donated product that will feed close to 6000 families whose lives have been upended due to the devastation of Hurricane Sandy.
After the recent devastation caused by the violent and deadly Hurricane Sandy, thousands of people were left without shelter and food. Although donations have already been made by many organizations and individuals, families with food allergies and intolerances, or those requiring gluten-free foods have continued to struggle, as most food donations made thus far have not taken their special needs into consideration. In an effort to alleviate some of their struggles, Enjoy Life Foods has donated product that will help serve this need. The donations will be divided among various food banks throughout New York and New Jersey, to ensure that all victims requiring special diets are able to access the foods.
“Our hearts go out to all the victims of the hurricane and the resulting floods,” said Joel Warady, Chief Sales and Marketing Officer of Enjoy Life Foods. “In particular, we understand the challenges facing those people in the community who live their everyday life with food intolerances, and hope this donation offers some relief as they deal with the aftermath.”
