A convoy of 21 trucks from food businesses around the region made their way from Rocky Hill to Bloomfield Tuesday morning, all part of the eighth annual food industry “Convoy of Caring”  for the regional food bank, Foodshare.

The regional food bank distributes 16 tons of food each day,  and Foodshare President Gloria McAdam says the summer is the slowest time for donations,  and the time of highest demand,  so the warehouse was looking pretty empty.  She says besides a variety of canned products,  the donations included fresh milk and fresh orange juice.

Companies which took part in the 21-mile convoy included Baronet Coffett, Bozzuto’s, Burris Logistics, C&S Wholesale Grocers, Freshpoint Produce, Geissler’s Supermarkets, Guida’s Milk and Ice Cream Company, Hemingway’s, Highland Park Markets, HPC Foodservice, Pepsi Bottling Group, Price Chopper Supermarkets, Price Rite Markets, Quality Sales. Sam’s Club, Sardilli Produce, Shop Rite/Wakefern Corporations, Stop & Shop Supermarkets, SYSCO of CT Foodservice, The Farmer’s Cow and Walgreen’s.
