Dot Foods Inc. recently loaded 12 trucks with food and supplies bound for Haiti. In addition, Dot matched employee contributions to donate a total of $92,990 to the relief efforts.
Coordinating the immediate transportation of donated goods, Dot partnered with Food For the Poor, an organization Dot has supported for the past 10 years, to deliver food to Haiti. In the wake of the recent disaster, Dot has increased its monthly donation to Haiti from one truckload to four.
Food For The Poor, a U.S.-based international relief organization in the United States, serves 17 countries throughout the Caribbean and Latin America. Founded in 1982, Food For The Poor is an interdenominational ministry that not only provides food but builds small houses, digs water wells, provides medicine and medical equipment, and supports orphanages and education.
Dot contacted food and supply manufacturers across the nation and facilitated free transportation for donated items from such participants as American Licorice, Apple and Eve, Camerica International, Dole, Golden Heritage, Inventure Group, Kangaroo Foods, Neil Jones Company, Reynolds, Sturm Foods, Sunsweet and Volrath.
