Il Fornaio, Meadowcroft Wines & Paradise Flowers

Our Food Donors of the Week, Il Fornaio, Meadowcroft Wines, and Paradise Flowers provided incredible, generous donations for our Volunteer Appreciation Event on May 16th. Our guests raved about about Il Fornaio’s award-winning Italian cuisine; Meadowcroft Wines’ delicious white and red varietals paired beautifully with the food; and Paradise Flowers’ gorgeous floral arrangements helped to create a beautiful, festive atmosphere. These tremendous donors truly made our party a memorable celebration.

Brian M.

Quick to respond to our calls for help filling spontaneous food trips as they come in, Brian M. has “saved” us on numerous occasions. Whether we need help transporting a hefty donation from one of our larger food donors, such as Costco and Byte Foods or delivering a lighter load from our friends at SusieCakes and Donut Alley, Brian responds with efficiency and flexibility. In just a few short months, Brian has completed nearly 30 spontaneous food trips, recovering almost 3,000 lbs of food.
