Aramark Partners With Nonprofit Distributor to Feed Those in NeedSeptember 4, 2020
Aramark has collaborated with the Common Market, a national nonprofit that connects communities to food from sustainable family farms, to deliver 12,000 boxes of fresh food to Pennsylvania and New Jersey communities facing food insecurity.
The Common Market Mid-Atlantic packed and delivered 1,680 farm-fresh boxes of local fruits and vegetables weekly to six school sites that Aramark serves in the Camden City School District in New Jersey and the William Penn School District in Pennsylvania. The boxes were distributed to students, families, and those in-need in the surrounding community. The food access program ran from July through the end of August and will continue into September.
“We are proud of our work with the Common Market, Camden and William Penn School Districts to provide community access to fresh produce and help to ensure that children and families stayed nourished during this time,” said Barbara Flanagan, President of Aramark’s K-12 Education division.
As part of its broader 2025 sustainability plan, Be Well. Do Well., Aramark is working to reduce inequality, support and grow local communities, and protect the planet. The company is investing in partnerships, to help communities end hunger and achieve food security by improving access to healthy food.
Aramark provides food services, facilities management, and uniform and career apparel to health care institutions, universities and school districts, stadiums and arenas, and businesses around the world. For more information, visit www.aramark.com.
