Wakefern Food Corp. Donates $1 Million to Assist in Sandy Relief Efforts

Keasbey, NJ – November 7, 2012 – Wakefern Food Corp. announced today that on behalf of its ShopRite and PriceRite stores, it will donate up to $1 million in both funds and in-kind donations to assist in the relief efforts for those struggling in the wake of super storm Sandy.

The company’s support will focus on regional food banks in the areas its stores serve throughout the Northeast who are providing meals and other assistance to those who have been displaced from their homes.

“The areas hardest hit by the storm are at the center of where our stores are located and our associates live. Many of those devastated by Sandy are our friends and neighbors. Reaching out and providing meals and other supplies remains our primary focus and effort in the days following the storm,” said Joseph Colalillo, chairman and CEO of Wakefern Food Corp. “To that end, Wakefern has committed $1 million in funds and in-kind donations to help aid in post-storm relief and recovery.”

In the hours following the storm, individual stores began addressing the needs of their communities, donating food, water and ice to local charities and government agencies. As relief efforts progressed, truckloads of food, water and prepared meals have been dispatched from Wakefern’s warehouses to regional food banks that are on the front line of relief efforts. “In difficult times like these, we often find that the greatest need emerges in the weeks and months following a devastating event,” said Joe Sheridan, president and COO, Wakefern Food Corp. “As our communities begin to recover from the impact of this storm, we will work to ensure that our support reaches our neighbors who have been most severely impacted.”

HOW PREPARED ARE YOU FOR AN EMERGENCY?

Every family should have an emergency supplies on hand in case extreme weather or other circumstances affect basic services. Basic supplies to sustain your family through a prolonged power outage or similar emergency situation should include: 

  • Bottled Water – One gallon, per person, per day
  • Food  - Ready-to-eat, nonperishable or canned foods and a manual can opener
  • Table Needs – Plastic utensils, paper plates and paper towels
  • First Aid – Bandages, sterile gloves, medications, prescription drugs, etc.
  • Hygiene Items – Toilet paper, moist towelettes, soap, toothpaste, etc.
  • Child Care Supplies – Diapers, baby wipes, formula, etc.
  • Sanitation – Garbage bags and cleaning supplies, such as chlorine bleach
  • Radio – Battery-powered with extra batteries
  • Phone – Rotary, cell or other model that does not require electricity
  • Lighting – Flashlights, lanterns, candles and waterproof matches
  • Signaling Device – Whistle or horn
  • Backups – Extra charger for cell phone, spare set of keys, extra eye glasses, etc.
  • Pet Supplies – Food, litter, etc., and water!

In the event of a power loss, it’s important to keep refrigerator and freezer doors closed as much as possible. An unopened refrigerator will keep food cold – at or below 40°F – for about four hours.

When power is restored, discard any perishable food (meat, poultry, fish, eggs, leftovers) that has been above 40°F for two hours or more.  

Check each package of frozen food to determine its safety – but do not rely on appearance or odor! If the food still contains ice crystals or is 40°F or below, it is safe to refreeze or cook.

Now Open!

Price Rite has expanded into New Jersey and the new Price Rte of Garfield is now open.

While Price Rite stores have traditionally been a corporately owned brand, this new location will be owned by Inserra Price Rites, a family business which also owns and operates 22 ShopRite stores in New Jersey and New York.

With more 50 Price Rite locations throughou…t the Northeast, the Price Rite of Garfield will be the first in New Jersey. Located at 59 Outwater Lane, the 41,000 sq. ft, the state-of-the-art store will bring nearly 100 full- and part-time jobs to the community.

Price Rite’s mission is to provide customers with a “clean, fresh, and friendly” shopping experience every day. Also known for its unmatched value, Price Rite offers customers the same quality foods as traditional supermarkets at about half the price and with the convenience of warehouse club-style shopping without the membership fees or bulk-buying requirements.

Price Rite employs a self service format that includes fresh produce delivered daily; packaged meats; baked goods; a variety of private label and national grocery brands; as well as dairy and frozen food products.

The new store will also feature some of the industry’s leading “green technologies,” including glass doors on dairy cases, and energy-efficient lighting and refrigeration throughout the store.

To further reduce costs and pass along those savings to customers, Price Rite does not advertise or publish a weekly circular. Customers are encouraged to use their own bags or to buy them as needed for 10¢ each, which benefits the environment while containing costs. By focusing on keeping operating costs low, Price Rite is proud to pass significant savings along to its customers.

“I am so excited and grateful to have been given this opportunity by my family to open an Inserra Price Rite in Garfield,” said Lawrence Inserra III, president of Inserra Price Rites. “Our family has been in the grocery business for 60 years and they have left me with an amazing blueprint, which has taught me to always take care of the people you work with and for. I look forward to working with an incredible team for an incredible town and hope that amongst a variety of competition, our quality, price and people attract the community to Price Rite.”

 


Price Rite is coming to Camden, NJ!

Mayor Dana L. Redd, Senator Donald Norcross, Council President Frank Moran and the Ravitz Family Markets announced today that PriceRite will expand its offering to New Jersey and has begun construction o…n its newest location, scheduled to open in the City of Camden this fall.

“I am proud to partner with the Ravitz family and PriceRite to bring yet another high quality supermarket in Camden,” Mayor Redd said. “I promised our residents access to fresh produce, meats and bakery goods and I am thrilled to be able to keep my word to them. Simply put, our Camden families deserve healthy food options and they will undoubtedly be getting this at PriceRite.”

While PriceRite stores have traditionally been a corporately owned brand, this new location will be owned by Ravitz Family Markets, which also plans to open a ShopRite store in Camden in 2016. The Ravitz family currently owns five ShopRite stores in Burlington and Camden Counties.

“My family and I are grateful to our new Camden neighbors for the opportunity to bring them not one but two brand new supermarkets,” said Jason Ravitz, vice president of retail operations for Ravitz Family Markets. “Expanding our commitment to the city of Camden with the addition of a PriceRite store is a natural next step for us as we work to provide the community with fresh food at great prices.”

Located at 2881 Mt. Ephraim Avenue, the 43,000 square foot, state-of-the-art PriceRite of Camden will bring more than 80 full- and part-time jobs to the community.

PriceRite’s mission is to provide customers with a “clean, fresh, and friendly” shopping experience every day. Also known for its unmatched value, PriceRite offers customers the same quality foods as traditional supermarkets at about half the price and with the convenience of warehouse club-style shopping without the membership fees or bulk-buying requirements.

“Last year’s announcement that Pathmark was closing brought the term ‘food desert’ home for too many Camden residents, taking away their only access to fresh produce,” said Senator Norcross. “Healthy nutrition and affordable options are critical to an individual’s well-being. The Ravitz family understands that and they acted quickly. Now we’re making lemon-aid out of lemons, with not one but two grocery stores coming to the city.”

“I am thankful to the Ravitz family for once again believing in Camden by opening their first of two supermarkets right here in our city,” Council President Moran said. “The opening of PriceRite will not only mean that our residents will have access to fresh and healthy foods, but also job opportunities in their own backyard.”

PriceRite employs a self-service format that includes fresh produce delivered daily; packaged meats; baked goods; a variety of private label and national grocery brands; as well as dairy and frozen food products.

The new store will also feature some of the industry’s leading “green technologies,” including glass doors on dairy cases, and energy-efficient lighting and refrigeration throughout the store.

Food Safety

Each year, millions of Americans get sick from harmful bacteria present in the foods they eat. The symptoms, which can occur anytime from 20 minutes to up to six weeks later, are often disguised as the flu. In most cases, this type of food-borne illness can be prevented by taking a little extra care in preparing, cooking and storing foods. Follow these basic guidelines.

Preparing Foods
Food safety begins at the grocery store with the proper selection of foods and by keeping certain items such as raw meat, poultry and seafood separated from other foods in the cart. When shopping for perishables, always check the sell-by or use-by date. Shop for refrigerated products and other perishables last, bag cold foods together and put them away first once home.

Separate for Safety

Keep raw meat, poultry and seafood separate from ready-to-eat foods in the refrigerator.

Use one cutting board for fresh produce and another for raw meat, poultry and seafood to avoid cross contamination.

Make it a Wash

Wash hands before, during and after handling raw meat, poultry and seafood.

Wash cutting boards, dishes and utensils with hot, soapy water after contact with raw meat, poultry and seafood.

Wash countertops and sinks with hot, soapy water and/or sanitize counters with a chlorine bleach solution or disinfectant.

Wash produce under cold water immediately before eating. Scrub thick-skinned produce like melons, potatoes and carrots with a brush.

Chop, Chop

When preparing leafy vegetables, remove and discard the outer leaves and wash and drain thoroughly before cooking and serving.

Always remove any damaged or bruised areas from fruits and vegetables. Refrigerate cut or peeled produce immediately.

Cooking Foods

Thawing and cooking foods properly helps prevent and destroy harmful bacteria. Leaving food on the counter to marinate or thaw invites harmful bacteria and should be avoided. When cooking raw meats, poultry or seafood, the only sure way to destroy harmful bacteria is to use a thermometer. Don’t judge by color, internal temperature is the only true indicator of whether a piece of meat is done.

Thaw Law

Thaw foods in refrigerator, under cold water or microwave.

Thaw foods in the microwave only when you are going to cook them immediately.

Get Cooking

Select from a wide variety of instant-read, digital, probes, pop-up timers, sensors and BBQ forks to prevent under or over cooking and assure safety.

Microwave Measures

When cooking with a microwave, even out cooking by stirring, turning, and allowing food to stand for a few minutes.

Because food cooks unevenly in the microwave, use thermometers in two to three different areas to assure safe temperatures throughout.

Color Changes of Ground Beef

Fresh ground beef goes through a normal color change known as bloom. Oxygen in the air causes the surface of fresh ground beef to turn bright red. The inside, not exposed to the air, will be darker, purple to red color.

Most people believe that cooked ground beef is safe to eat if it’s no longer pink inside. But according to the U.S. Department of Agriculture, one out of four hamburgers turns brown in the middle before it reaches safe temperatures, while some burgers may still have a hint of pink upon reaching 160ºF.

Storing Foods
Keep it cold! Refrigerate or freeze perishables, prepared foods and leftovers within two hours of purchase or preparation, including serving and eating time.

Store fresh cut or peeled raw produce in the refrigerator.

Store it Right

Store leftovers in small, shallow containers to cook quicker and avoid spoiling.

Store raw meat, poultry, and seafood in leak proof containers or plastic bags.

Let Nature Help

Do not wash fresh produce before storing. The whitish, waxy coating you’ll see on some produce items is nature’s way of protecting it from moisture loss and decay. Do wash produce immediately before preparing and eating.
