FreshDirect and Chobani Partner to Share Love with South Bronx CS 300 Students on Valentine’s Day



NEW YORK–()–FreshDirect was joined by Chobani at The School of Science and Applied
Learning Community School 300 in the Bronx yesterday to celebrate
Valentine’s Day with a free yogurt giveaway and a special heart
health-themed program for students grades 1–3. The companies joined
forces to donate more than 600 yogurt cups to the students, along with
heart-healthy recipes and arts & crafts supplies for an interactive
Valentine’s Day-themed project, led by school representatives and
FreshDirect and Chobani employees.

“At FreshDirect, we strongly believe that healthy food options should be
accessible to all and we remain committed to broadening access to
healthier food options, while positively impacting all the communities
we serve,” said Jason Ackerman, FreshDirect CEO and co-founder. “We were
thrilled to partner with Chobani on Valentine’s Day to create a unique
experience for students at CS 300 in the South Bronx. We are incredibly
proud that the South Bronx will soon be our new home and look forward to
executing many more engagements with the local community in the years to
come.”

FreshDirect is committed to the communities it serves and in 2017
donated more than 2 million pounds of food to people in need through its
partnerships with City Harvest and local food programs across the
Northeast.
