The Food Industry Responds to Haiti

Posted on Friday 22 January 2010

While perusing the web this morning to get my daily news fix, I noticed a lot of talk in the food industry about aiding relief efforts in Haiti. It’s being repeated, and often, that in times of crisis restaurants and food companies are often the first to organize. Being so far away from there, in so many ways, it’s hard for me to fully grasp the devastation this earthquake has brought upon these peoples’ lives. So, I’ve gathered some links and resources to share on what various restaurants and food companies are doing to offer their support, and to give ideas for how others can lend a hand.

The National Restaurant Association has an interesting article on how restaurants are doing their part to aid the Haiti relief effort and includes the following resources on where you can get involved in Food Aid:
