Pasta, tomatoes and sauce en route to feed thousands in Haiti
Guelph, Ontario – Tuesday, April 6, 2010 – Over the next two weeks $84,700 worth of donated product is being shipped on 4 containers out of FTC Canada’s Guelph based warehouse and bound for Port-au-Prince, Haiti.
The first two containers will have 75,000 lbs of spaghetti, penne, and linguini from Concord, ON based Unico Inc. The second two containers heading out next week will have 93,770 lbs of canned tomatoes, tomato sauce, kidney beans, and sardines from Toronto based Primo Foods. The containers are scheduled to arrive in early May and will go to feeding thousands of children and their families who are still without homes.
“Canned and dry products are ideal for overseas work and will be of great help in Haiti.” says Cliff Cline, COO of FTC Canada. “We are extremely grateful to the people at Unico and Primo for generously supporting our ongoing relief efforts there.”
Since the January 12th earthquake, FTC Canada will have sent more than $560,000 worth of food, supplies and medicine in 13 containers to Haiti. To learn more about our ongoing efforts please visit www.ftccanada.ca
