Visitors who scanned their badge while visiting the Escalon booth at the International Pizza Expo became part of an effort to provide hunger relief to the world. As part of its One Can. Make a Difference. campaign, Escalon promised to donate one can of product per scan. Thanks to all the participants, Escalon is donating over 1,000 cans of 6 in 1 All Purpose Ground Tomatoes to Stop Hunger Now—a nonprofit that delivers food, essentials and disaster relief to millions of hungry, vulnerable victims in 65 countries around the world. This shipment will be sent to aid their partners in Cambodia, where one out of three citizens live below the poverty line and 40 percent of children are malnourished.

Stop Hunger Now is driven by the vision of a world without hunger. Their mission is to end hunger in our lifetime by providing food and life-changing aid to the world’s most vulnerable and creating a global commitment to mobilize the necessary resources. Learn more at www.stophungernow.org.

A division of the KraftHeinz Company, Escalon produces fresh-packed California tomatoes and tomato sauces made especially for operators with an abiding “passion for better.” Escalon’s complete line of more than 30 products includes formats ranging from whole peeled pear tomatoes to fully prepared sauce to organic and Hispanic-style tomatoes.
