Maglio & Company Donates Salad Bars to Local Wisconsin Schools

GLENDALE, WI – May 8, 2014 – Maglio & Company, a regional distributor, repacker and fresh-cut processor of produce has contributed $5,000 to the Let’s Move Salad Bars to Schools campaign. This donation will fund the equipment for a salad bar in two Wisconsin schools, the Academy of Excellence in Milwaukee and Black Hawk Elementary School in Sauk City.

Let’s Move Salad Bars to Schools is a grassroots effort of the Food Family Farming Foundation, National Fruit and Vegetable Alliance, United Fresh Produce Association Foundation, and Whole Foods Market in support of First Lady Michelle Obama’s Let’s Move initiative.

Maglio & Company selected the Academy and Black Hawk Elementary to receive their contribution so that the company could support an urban school as well as a rural one. The Academy and Black Hawk are two of over 3,400 schools that have received a salad bar donation as part of Let’s Move Salad Bars to Schools.

“Not only does this program provide an opportunity for healthy change in schools, but it allows children to experience fresh foods that they may not have access to otherwise,” said Sam Maglio, Jr., President. “Donating to a school in close proximity to one of our facilities allows us to support our local community. Involving a rural school brings this great fresh fruit and vegetable opportunity to a new constituency.”

The goal of Let’s Move Salad Bars to Schools is to implement 6,000 salad bars over the next three years. To learn more about how to support a salad bar, visit www.saladbars2school.org.

CORRECTION: A previous version of this release stated that Messmer Catholic School was a recipient of a salad bar, and now correctly names Black Hawk Elementary School as the recipient.
