Fresh & Easy Kicks Off Annual Holiday Food Drive

EL SEGUNDO, Calif. --(Business Wire)--

Fresh & Easy Neighborhood Market today launched their third annual Holiday Food Drive to help fight hunger this holiday season. Now through December 31st, all Fresh & Easy stores will be collecting non-perishable food donations in specially designated boxes to benefit food banks in Arizona, California and Nevada. With the help of its customers, Fresh & Easy donated more than $2,000,000 worth of food last holiday season, and aims to donate even more this year.

"Los Angeles Regional Food Bank feeds one million people annually and of that, 400,000 are children - so donations are crucial," said Carol Tremblay, Los Angeles Regional Food Bank Chief Development Officer. "We are extremely grateful to Fresh & Easy for their support, especially during the holiday time when we want to provide Thanksgiving meals to our families."

"Giving to food banks is a great way for companies to give back through the holiday season and all year long," said Erica Thompson, Three Square Food Bank Director of Corporate Giving. "I think it's great for a company to come together to organize and implement a food drive, and we are thrilled to have the support of Fresh & Easy Neighborhood Market."

"We hope customers will join us in helping fight hunger this holiday season by adding to our regular food bank donations through our food drive," said John Burry, Fresh & Easy Chief Customer fficer. "Together, we hope to help our neighbors in need enjoy their holidays, and get one step closer to alleviating hunger."


A few of Fresh & Easy's local food bank partners include: Three Square Food Bank in Nevada, St. Mary's Food Bank Alliance in Arizona, Los Angeles Regional Food Bank and several regional Second Harvest/Feeding America Food Bank locations throughout California.

Is Your Network Ready for the Internet of Everything?

The telephone industry is undergoing a dramatic transformation that began with the introduction of IP-based data networks in the early 1990s and then with Voice over Internet Protocol (VoIP) in the late 1990s, and it now includes all forms ofvoice, video, and messaging communications.

Building a Secure and Scalable Multimedia IP Exchange

As fixed and mobile operators increasingly move to IP-based networks, the complexity required to interconnect these networks grows dramatically. Faced with increasing competition from all corners and constant challenge to grow revenues, operators are struggling with the variety and disparities in partner and customer networks.

How Carriers Can Optimize for LTE Roaming

Connectivity between mobile network operators (MNO) in 4G LTE is much more complex than it was in legacy networks.This complexity is primarily due to the change in focus. LTE is not a voice-focused roaming environment, but rather a datacentric environment.
