STAR & Fresno State Athletics: End Hunger Campaign
STAR® Fine Foods and Fresno State Athletics have teamed up to help end hunger this athletic season. As part of the “End Hunger” campaign, STAR® will make a donation to the Community Food Bank, which is located in Fresno and serves five counties in the Central Valley. The donations will be generated by every sack by the Fresno State football team, block by the Fresno State basketball team and strikeout thrown by a Fresno State pitcher.
For the 2014/15 campaign we donated 35,000 meals to the Central Valley through the Community Food Bank. We look forward to the 2015/16 campaign.
STAR is a proud partner of Susan G Komen®
STAR is a proud partner of Susan G Komen® and its mission to save lives and end breast cancer forever. Olive oil and vinegar aisles in retail grocery stores throughout the United States are a little rosier this fall as our 500 ml STAR Extra Virgin Olive oil labels turn from green to pink coinciding with Breast Cancer Awareness Month in October. Our Red Wine and Balsamic Vinegars also have special pink tags as does some of our Cara Mia artichokes.
Susan G. Komen is the world’s largest breast cancer organization, funding more breast cancer research than any other nonprofit while providing real-time help to those facing the disease. Since its founding in 1982, Komen has funded more than $800 million in research and provided $1.7 billion in funding to screening, education, treatment and psychosocial support programs serving millions of people in more than 30 countries worldwide. Komen was founded by Nancy G. Brinker, who promised her sister, Susan G. Komen, that she would end the disease that claimed Suzy’s life. Visit komen.org or call 1-877 GO KOMEN. Connect with them on Facebook and Twitter.
In 2015, Borges USA will donate $60,000 to Susan G Komen® regardless of sales.
