Fremont, CA, July 15, 2011 --(PR.com
)-- Spicely® Organic Spices, a leading organic & natural spices vendor headquartered in Fremont, California, announced a food drive to benefit local hungry families. The company is running a benefit through Food Day, October 24th, on its website http://www.spicely.com .
Spicely received help planning the benefit food drive from the Alameda County Community Food Bank, which operates a network of over 275 community organizations. Shoppers who use a select coupon code (5050-ACCFB) at Spicely's online store will receive a 25% discount. In addition, Spicely will donate a 25% voucher to the Alameda County Community Food Bank or other selected charity.
Steve Arnold, Online Sales Manager for Spicely® Organic Spices, cited statistics from U.S. Department of Agriculture: "Despite the generosity of millions of Americans who have supported the people in need, the need for food assistance has never been greater. According to the USDA's annual study measuring food security in the United States, the number of Americans living in food insecure homes topped 50 million in 2009. Perhaps most alarming, of this total, approximately one in three people in America who is at hunger risk is a child (17.2 million)."
"We feel very fortunate," said Arnold. We can promote a healthy diet. By fighting hunger locally, we are raising awareness about global food insecurity issues. We hope that the community will join us to fight hunger and get a big discount too."
