Foodservice distribution company Sysco has said it will donate $100,000 to help Texas foodservice operators and communities recover from the recent winter storm.
Donations will be made to the American Red Cross and the Greater Houston Partnership, as well as various Texas state associations including the Texas Restaurant Association, Texas Hotel and Lodging Association, Texas Health Care Association, Texas Hospital Association and Texas Assisted Living Association.
“Through these donations, Sysco hopes to support families and foodservice businesses across Texas that have suffered from the impact of the recent winter storm,” said Neil Russell, Sysco’s senior vice president, Corporate Affairs and chief communications officer. “It is our hope that these funds will help address the vast impacts felt by so many, including efforts to support frontline workers, doctors, nurses and first responders.”
In addition to the financial contributions, Sysco continues to make food donations to multiple organizations serving those in need.
