In the wake of the global COVID-19 pandemic, FiveStar Gourmet Foods is taking action by donating 15,000 pre-packaged complete meal salads under the Simply Fresh brand to Feeding America, the nation’s largest domestic hunger-relief organization, who will be distributing the salads to the local communities that they serve.

“Feeding America is committed to expanding fresh offerings to food banks in communities that are facing hunger in this difficult time,” said Tal Shoshan, FiveStar’s Chief Executive Officer, “We want to do our part to help provide more nutritious food to those who are struggling.”
