Wayside has a new partner in food rescue; the Ocean State Job Lot Charitable Foundation. They dropped off their first donation this week, which totalled over 30,000 lbs! The Charitable Foundation was created to reinforce the company's commitment to the communities where their stores are located. They have multiple initiatives, one of which is hunger relief. Utilizing their buying power and know-how to acquire product directly from manufacturers, they are able to purchase food at a fraction of what others, including many food banks, would pay. In addition, all costs involved in the procurement, logistics and transportation of the donations are paid for by Ocean State Job Lot. In 2017 they distributed 200 tractor trailer loads of food throughout the Northeast. Wayside looks forward to continuing this partnership in fighting hunger and strengthening our community.
