Gold Bell, part of the Arrowfarms company, is celebrating its 40th anniversary this year. Founder Joanne Cipriano Dolan says, "We started Gold Bell 40 years ago with the idea to provide our customers with seasonal specialty items year-round. We have grown throughout the east coast and beyond. We are proud to employ a team of more than 50 people, and are dedicated to providing top quality product to every customer, every day. We want to thank our loyal customers and our dedicated staff for 40 remarkable years."
To commemorate the occasion, Gold Bell said it will donate 10 percent of Friday, November 8th, 2019’s gross sales to the Boston nonprofit Fair Foods. Fair Foods receives surplus produce from industrial suppliers who can no longer use it. On an average day, the organization receives and ships over 10,000 pounds of fresh food. "We have partnered with Fair Foods for years, and donating on our 40th anniversary is a wonderful way to include our retail customers in giving back to the community that our company calls home," says Dolan.
Nancy Jamison of Fair Foods says that her organization is grateful. "For 30 years, Gold Bell has provided food to those in need throughout New England by supporting Fair Foods. So far in 2019, we have distributed 145,200 pounds of food - that is a pallet of food stacked to the top of the Prudential Center yearly," says Jamison. "We are so appreciative, as are the thousands of low-income people we serve by delivering this produce to health centers, veterans centers, Boston Housing senior centers, shelters and churches daily."
Arrowfarms will exhibit at the New England Produce Expo in Boston this September 18-19. The booth will celebrate Gold Bell's 40th anniversary and detail Arrowfarms' sustainability initiatives.
