Aliki Foods of Old Lyme, CT Donates Over 600 Cases of Overstocked Product to DC Central Kitchen

Aliki Foods donated over 600 cases of overstocked frozen pizza sauce to DC Central Kitchen. DC Central Kitchen's Culinary Job Training program is the proud primary recipient of this donation.

Washington, DC, March 22, 2009 --( Aliki Foods has donated 600 cases of overstocked product to the DC Central Kitchen in Washington, DC. Donated items include frozen pizza sauce. DC Central Kitchen will have received the entire donation by the end of March. They began using the donated frozen pizza sauce in February.

DC Central Kitchen’s staff is thrilled to receive Aliki Foods’ generous donation. Kitchen director Gerald Thomas used the sauce in February to make a Moroccan stew celebrating Black History Month. Grandma Aliki’s Frozen Pizza Sauce was also used to make simple pasta sauce and Vegetarian Stew. DC Central Kitchen’s staff noted the thicker consistency makes for an excellent base.

Michael Pappas, Aliki Foods President, is impressed with the programs DC Central Kitchen runs.

“DC Central Kitchen’s Culinary Job Training is a wonderful opportunity to provide residents in the Capitol area with skills to help them get jobs in the Food Service Industry,” said Pappas. “As a chef myself, I know how great it can be to create a wonderful dish.”
