Foley for Food

This week, Foley Distributing launches Foley for Food, a new customer program established to help the Vermont Foodbank provide nutritious food to Vermonters in need. For every new customer who enrolls in the Foley for Food Program, Foley Distributing will donate 1% of all sales to the Vermont Foodbank.

“At Foley, our mission since 1879 is to give back to the communities we serve,” says John King, Vice President at Foley Distributing. “We know that partnering with our customers to support the Vermont Foodbank will make a difference in the lives of Vermonters in need all over the state.”

With winter approaching, 153,000 Vermonters are facing tough tradeoffs to keep food on the table. Businesses can help by sourcing janitorial, sanitary and food service products through Foley Distributing’s Foley for Food Program. Every $1 donated to the Vermont Foodbank will provide three nutritious meals.

“When Foley Distributing approached us about this partnership, we were thrilled,” says John Sayles, Vermont Foodbank CEO. “Business as usual for new Foley customers now means investing in local communities and in the 1 in 4 of our Vermont friends and neighbors who need food help.”
