Omega3 Innovations Helps Local Food Bank Provide Thanksgiving Dinners for those in Need
Date:12/6/2012

Venice, FL (PRWEB) December 06, 2012

In addition to the usual Thanksgiving contributions, a Sarasota food bank is receiving some creative donations this holiday season, compliments of Omega3 Innovations, creator of the Omega Cookie.

For every box of Omega Cookies sold at the Sarasota Farmer’s Market and every Facebook “like” the company receives this month, Omega3 Innovations is donating $1 to All Faiths Food Bank, according to Dr. Anne-Marie Chalmers, co-founder of the Venice-based biotech company.

“I’m impressed with the nutrition courses that All Faiths gives to young families,” Chalmers said. “They not only provide food for the hungry, but they teach how to make inexpensive, healthy and good-tasting meals. That’s very much in line with our mission, too.”

Omega3 Innovations – a family-owned company that produces healthy oatmeal-based cookies and dark chocolate truffles rich in omega-3 fish oil, as well as fresh-tasting liquid fish oil – is hoping to help provide food to those who need it most by working with All Faiths Food Bank.

Previously, the company donated Omega Cookies directly to All Faiths Food Bank to not only help feed hungry people, but also provide them with nutritious food, Chalmers said.

With the help of nearly 200 partner agencies and programs, All Faiths Food Bank gathers and distributes more than 88,000 meals weekly in Sarasota and Desoto counties, according to All Faiths Executive Director Sandra Frank.

“Every day, thousands of people in southwest Florida struggle with hunger,” Frank said. “Statistics indicate that the face of hunger has changed with unemployment being the stronger predictor of food insecurity. Today, the hungry also include hard-working adults, children and seniors who simply cannot make ends meet and are forced to go without food for several meals, or even days.”

Chalmers said she hopes her company’s donations will help the food bank provide more food for the hungry this holiday season than ever before.

“All Faiths does so much for our community, and this year they desperately need more resources.”
