(Plain Press, February 2018)        Giant Eagle Supermarket shoppers, who purchased Dietz & Watson premium deli meats and cheeses from November 2 to December 6th of last year, participated in Families Helping Families, a national Dietz & Watson charitable purchase program run with partner supermarkets. Giant Eagle customers were encouraged to purchase Dietz & Watson products in order to make a contribution to a local charity or organization within the retailer’s community. Giant Eagle chose to support the Greater Cleveland Food Bank.

On January 22, 2018, Dietz & Watson Strategic Sales Representative Michelle Helena Denk joined with Giant Eagle Deli Team Leader Jan Papp and Giant Eagle Senior Team Leader Eric Buttolph in presenting a check for $7,500 to the Greater Cleveland Food Bank.

Greater Cleveland Food Bank Senior Manager of Corporate Relations Joanne Clemens and Greater Cleveland Food Bank Marketing & Corporate Events Manager Kellie Biller were on hand to accept the check. In all, six food banks in communities in Ohio and Pennsylvania received $7,500 checks from Dietz & Watson on behalf of Giant Eagle through the Families Helping Families purchase program. It is estimated that the $45,000 donated to the six food banks on behalf of Giant Eagle, will fund 202,500 meals.

Visitors to the check presentation ceremony were treated with samples of Dietz and Watson meats and cheeses served by mother and daughter team Mary Ann and Jessica Cerney. The samples included sausage, chicken and cheddar cheese.

The Greater Cleveland Food Bank is the largest hunger relief organization in Northeast Ohio. In 2017, it provided 55 million meals to hungry people in Cuyahoga, Ashtabula, Geauga, Lake, Ashland and Richland counties.

Dietz & Watson is a Philadelphia-based premium deli meat and cheese company.
