Rabba Fine Foods’ Rabba Roots Community Program has been recognized in the Community Service/Local Impact/Giving Back category in the inaugural 2021 Impact Awards program.
Organized by Canadian Grocer, the Impact Awards is the premier business awards program recognizing initiatives introduced by retailers, suppliers, and solution providers in the Canadian grocery industry.
“Contributing to local communities is at the very heart of who we are,” said Rima Rabba, spokesperson for Rabba Fine Foods. “We are honoured to be recognized by our peers but, most importantly, we are hopeful we can continue to make a positive difference in the lives of our neighbours.”
According to the company, Rabba Roots is a community giving program committed to contributing to the lives of people through access to food, health, and emergency services. It is also a supporter of arts and events in its local communities.
Through Rabba Roots, the company has recently helped local emergency shelters, food banks, children’s hospitals, and provided funding to help ICU units through a longstanding partnership with Trillium Health Partners.
Recipients of the 2021 Impact Awards were selected by the editorial board of Canadian Grocer for demonstrating meaningful initiatives in a range of areas–from helping the planet to supporting employees and communities. The winners will be announced in the September/October issue of the magazine and online at canadiangrocer.com.
“We opened nominations just a few months ago and received so many incredible submissions,” said Shellee Fitzgerald, editor-in-chief of Canadian Grocer. “Congratulations to Rabba Fine Foods and its Rabba Roots Community Program for its good work and many contributions.”
