In a story based on the giving principal way of living, a Trader Joe’s store in Kalamazoo Michigan had a problem on Wednesday when their refrigerator was not working in the morning to keep the food inside the store fresh and edible to eat.
The management of Trader Joe’s came up with a brilliant plan to donate to a local shelter in Kalamazoo Michigan around 35,000 pounds of food to the Kalamazoo Gospel Mission to feed the occupants there so they could have a meal.
Greg Weaver who is the director of the Food Service division of the mission received the good news that the Trader Joe’s store in Kalamazoo Michigan wanted to donate the food that was still fresh to the mission as a gift to them.
The Kalamazoo Gospel Mission receives food from donors so they can feed the people who lives there so they can receive help to get back on their feet when they have run into some hard times in their lives.
Captain Daniel Sorscher says that is the policy of all Trader Joe’s stores to donate fresh food that is not purchased to local charities so they feed people who really need to be fed a meal.
When the mission received the largest donation in the history of their charity, they decided to donate about 4,000 pounds to a local food bank named 12 Baskets.
It is nice to know that major corporations assist food banks and missions to receive meals that were not sold to the customers at the Trader Joe’s stores.
