Gift for Life partners with Cocina Sabrosa trade show
Gift for Life established a partnership with Cocina Sabrosa Food & Beverage Trade Expo to host a fundraising campaign during its national trade show, Sept. 27-28 at Irving Convention Center in Los Colinas, Texas.
All funds raised will benefit World Central Kitchen’s programs addressing food insecurity and crisis-related hunger relief.
Gift for Life and Cocina Sabrosa, a national trade show for the Hispanic grocery and restaurant industry, aim to raise $5,000 for World Central Kitchen and its hunger-relief efforts. Donations can be made here.
“This is a great first-time partnership, which provides Gift for Life with an exciting introduction to an important industry,” said Ari Lowenstein, chair of Gift for Life. “Cocina Sabrosa’s goal of growing and elevating the Latin Food and Beverage industry, and the community at large, will introduce Gift for Life and World Central Kitchen to a new audience of potential supporters. We are proud to expand our relationship with Emerald Expo and to enter into the food-service arena, which is so linked to World Central Kitchen’s roots.”
Bringing together decision-makers across the food and beverage industry, from retail to food service, Cocina Sabrosa Food & Beverage Trade Expo aims to be a meeting place for the entire Hispanic food and beverage community. Cocina Sabrosa is where grocers, manufacturers, equipment companies, restaurants, distributors, investors and thought leaders gather to learn, network and conduct business.
“Our shared goal to advance individuals and communities through the transformative power of food is at the heart of this collaboration. By joining forces, we’re harnessing the strength of the food & beverage industry not only to delight palates, but to uplift lives,” said Andrea Fletcher, brand director of Cocina Sabrosa. “We are honored to partner alongside Gift for Life to advance World Central Kitchen’s mission to provide meals and hope in the face of crises.”
