ARAMARK Creates Hub For Nutrition And Wellness In Glendale

GLENDALE, Calif., Oct. 25, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- Like many communities in Southern California, Glendale has been hard-hit by the recession, which has created ever-increasing demands on community centers as families struggle to make ends meet and find funds to purchase healthy, nutritious food. In fact, The Salvation Army's Glendale Corps food pantry is serving 200 percent more people than it was five years ago, and this year, The Salvation Army in Southern California provided more than 182,000 individual grocery orders.

Today nearly 100 volunteers from ARAMARK, the global professional services company, will establish an ARAMARK Building Community (ABC) Opportunity Zone at The Salvation Army Glendale Corps and Community Center.   This new resource will provide underserved individuals and families with healthy food and educational programs so they can learn strategies to help them improve their overall health and well-being.

This project is part of a five year relationship between ARAMARK and the Salvation Army of Southern California, which provides a broad array of social services for thousands of individuals each year. Through ARAMARK Building Community, the company's global volunteer and philanthropic program, ARAMARK strengthens local community centers and helps struggling families in the U.S. and abroad.

"Through our work with The Salvation Army over the years, hundreds of ARAMARK employees have made a difference for low-income families throughout Southern California," said Brad Drummond, President, ARAMARK Uniform Services, headquartered in Burbank, CA. "Whether we're creating safer, more vibrant community gathering places or preparing and serving a Thanksgiving meal to those in need, we are committed to this community so that residents here can lead healthy and successful lives."

"For five years ARAMARK Building Community has been making a difference at Salvation Army service centers around Southern California. When the ARAMARK volunteers gather at our Glendale Corps and Community Center today, they will once again make a profound contribution in strengthening the local community and assisting The Salvation Army's mission of Doing the Most Good," said Major Ian Robinson, Director of Development The Salvation Army/Southern California Division.

The ABC Opportunity Zone will include significant renovations to the current food pantry to make it more efficient and improve the ability of the Salvation Army to provide much needed food to the tens of thousands of people who rely on donations to help them feed their families.
