Philadelphia, PA – Procacci Brothers Sales Corp donated over a half of million pounds of produce from October 2011 to September 2012 to Philabundance, the Delaware Valley’s largest hunger relief organization.  The donation is the largest amount of produce Procacci has donated in a year to date, up from 18,917 pounds in 2010-11.

In addition to full trailer donations that went through Philabundance’s distribution network, Procacci Brothers helped with weekly fresh donations in order to support Philabundance’s Community Kitchen (PCK).  The PCK is a hands-on culinary arts vocational training program that teaches basic culinary skills while providing job placement support.

President of Procacci Brothers, Mike Maxwell, stated “We are proud to see our relationship with Philabundance continue to grow, especially during tough economic times when our communities count on it the most.  And, adding fresh fruits and vegetables to more plates is always a win-win.”

“Procacci Brothers are truly dedicated partners to Philabundance and the fight against hunger in the Delaware Valley,” said Bill Clark, president and executive director of Philabundance. “They help us in a number of ways including the donation of more than a half million pounds of produce to Philabundance in the past year, a remarkable amount of produce which helped provide nutritious food to countless families and individuals in need.”

Procacci Brothers works to grow and strengthen the business of our customers. Receiving the freshest produce locally, domestically, and from around the world, Procacci Brothers remains committed to building strong and unique programs for retail supermarkets, club stores, and the food service industry.
