RW GARCIA DONATES BETTER-FOR-YOU SNACKS TO VICTIMS OF HURRICANE FLORENCE

October 3, 2018

SCOTTS VALLEY, Calif.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Oct 3, 2018--RW Garcia company, a family owned and operated snack brand, has partnered with a local food shelf in Washington, North Carolina to bring nutritious snacks to victims of Hurricane Florence. With the help of Eagle’s Wings Food Pantry and complimentary delivery by Stephen Craig Transport, RW Garcia will donate 195 cases filled with more than 2,400 7 oz. individual bags of its bean-infused tortilla chips.

Hurricane Florence displaced thousands of residents in North Carolina in September. Given the need for food, especially healthy food, the team at RW Garcia knew a donation of its bean-infused tortilla chips would make an impact. Nearly 200 cases of the chips – all non-GMO and made with ancient grains – were donated in total.

“As a family owned company, we cannot imagine what displaced families in North Carolina are going through,” said Vice President of Marketing for RW Garcia and second-generation Garcia family member, Genelle Chetcuti. “We hope that this contribution will make a difference in their daily lives.”
