Grace Foods USA wrapped up its summer of giving community outreach initiative through its “Taste That Moves You” and “Chill & Grill With Grace” campaigns. In keeping with the Company’s Corporate Social Responsibility commitment, the campaigns provided groceries for needy families and delivered thank-you meals to essential workers.

As part of its “Chill & Grill” campaign, starting the end of June and running into July,  Grace Foods provided over 300 hot meals  prepared with their delicious Grace Jerk Seasonings paired with their refreshing Tropical Rhythms juices to Waste Management sanitation workers in Florida to thank them for their hard work to ensure that neighborhoods remained clean and safe throughout the COVID-19 pandemic.

Wrapping up the Chill & Grill Campaign at the end of July, and in true philantrpoic mode, they again served over 300 plus meals to sanitation workers in Brooklyn and New Jersey through Waste Management and New York’s Department of Transportation.

Through its “Taste That Moves You” campaign, on July 15th, Grace delivered non-perishable food items to Joshua’s Heart Foundation (JHF) to assist in a food distribution that served over 100 families. JHF is a North Miami Beach non-profit organization with a mission of “stomping out hunger and poverty” by serving needy families in the tri-county area of Miami-Dade, Broward and Palm Beach in Florida.

At the end of July, the “Taste That Moves You” campaign also collaborated with the Urban Outreach Center of New York (UOCNYC) to feed the homeless and provide groceries for the underserved in low-income communities. UOCNYC works to end the hunger gap throughout NYC with particular emphasis on East Harlem and the Upper East Side, by connecting New Yorkers with the healthy food and social services they need, with the dignity they deserve.

Reverend Jordan Tarwater, Executive Director at UOCNYC, projected their human services center will serve over one million meals, to the residents of East Harlem and New York’s Upper East Side, during 2021 to help end the hunger gap. “We are honored and grateful to partner with Grace Foods and Chef David Stample who prepared a delicious jerk chicken meal prepared with Grace’s jerk marinade that fed close to 200 homeless and financially displaced residents on Tuesday, July 27th; and provided groceries for 250 families on Wednesday, July 28th,” said Tarwater.

“Giving back to the communities we serve continues to be a key part of what we do at GraceKennedy. The last 18 months remind us of the tremendous challenges we face as a community and how much we can accomplish working together. The elimination of hunger in our community continues to be an important cause that we are committed to, and we will continue to work with community pantries and organizations like Joshua Heart and the Urban Outreach Community Center to address,” said Derrick Reckord, CEO Grace Kennedy Foods USA, LLC.

These latest Grace Foods USA community outreach programs follow on the heels of their “With Love From Grace” food truck tour in 2020. That initiative delivered hot jerk chicken meals and face masks to some 2000 essential workers at Grace’s retail partners at over 30 stops in Florida and New York, including Broward Meat & Fish, Bravo, Publix, Fresco y Mas, Western Beef, Key Foods, ShopRite, Pathmark, and Walmart, during the pandemic.

GraceKennedy’s food division is also engaged in food manufacturing through GraceKennedy-owned factories and external suppliers; the distribution of Grace and Grace-owned brands in Jamaica and internationally; and the operation of retail outlets through Hi-Lo Foods chain of supermarkets in Jamaica.
