Give Aloha

This month marks the start of one of my favorite programs at Foodland – Give Aloha. In many ways, it seems like just yesterday that our marketing team came together to brainstorm ideas of how to appropriately honor our late founder, Sully. To us, a program to support the community was the logical choice as Sully was not only known for his support of local non-profits, but he had always instilled in us that we “have a responsibility to support the community that supports us.”
