Two Associates from ShopRite of Ramsey Featured on Special Edition Cheerios Box

Inserra Supermarkets Store Honored for Outstanding Fundraising Efforts During ShopRite Partners In Caring Cheerios Contest To Combat Hunger in Communities 

RAMSEY, N.J., March 24, 2017 – Two Inserra Supermarkets associates from ShopRite of Ramsey, Shirley Calderone of Saddle River and Patricia Zieber of Ramsey, are featured on a special edition Cheerios box, recognizing their fund-raising efforts as part of the annual ShopRite Partners In Caring Cheerios Contest. During the campaign, ShopRite associates across six states raised funds to support regional food banks and hunger-relief programs in communities served by ShopRite stores.

Pictured at the recognition ceremony, left to right, are Lawrence Inserra III; Melissa Vantassel, assistant store manager; Manny Martinez, assistant store manager; Chris Antonucci, store manager; Marie Inserra, owner; Shirley Calderone, associate; Vikki Galvez; Inserra Supermarkets associate; Laura Inserra-Dupont, owner; Patricia Zieber, associate; Linda Somwaru, site manager for the Center for Food Action; Tim Vogel, Director of Food Sourcing of the Community Food Bank of New Jersey; Ron Onorato, president and COO of Inserra Supermarkets; and Lawrence Inserra, Jr., chairman and CEO of Inserra Supermarkets.

General Mills partners with ShopRite in sponsoring the friendly competition, which has a “fighting hunger from the heart – together we can make a difference” theme this year.

As one of the top stores, raising nearly $16,000, ShopRite of Ramsey was awarded $500 to donate to the Center for Food Action (CFA). Linda Somwaru, Mahwah site manager for the CFA, accepted the donation on the organization’s behalf. Steven Hilder, community relations advocate of the Wakefern Food Corp., served as the MC of the recognition ceremony.

“We are proud to partner with Wakefern and General Mills to provide support for the local food pantries and charities that serve as a lifeline to many in our communities,” said Lawrence Inserra, Jr., chairman and CEO of the family-owned grocery store chain. “As always, our customers and associates are true heroes for their generosity and efforts in combating hunger with us.”

In addition to ShopRite of Ramsey, three other Inserra Supermarkets stores are being recognized for their fundraising efforts. Inserra Supermarkets, which is a member of the Wakefern Food Corp. cooperative, is widely acknowledged as a good corporate citizen, dedicated to improving the lives of local residents and those in need. Since the inception of Wakefern’s Partners In Caring program in 1999, more than $44 million has been donated to 2,400+ charities in New York, New Jersey, Connecticut, Delaware, Pennsylvania and Maryland.
