Jewel-Osco celebrates Hispanic Heritage Month with ‘Sabor de la Herencia Hispana’
ITASCA, Ill. A Midwest food and drug retailer is celebrating Hispanic Heritage Month with its third annual VIP reception to honor the culture and significant achievements of the Hispanic community.
Jewel-Osco is holding its signature event, “Sabor de la Herencia Hispana” (Taste of Hispanic Heritage), on Sept. 22, and is dedicated to recognizing the continuous efforts and outstanding contributions made by leaders from the civic, business and nonprofit sectors of the community. During the VIP reception, Jewel-Osco will honor three social service agencies for their efforts and their commitment to enriching the Hispanic communities they serve. This year, Jewel-Osco will award a total of $15,000 in grants to Association House, Namaste Charter School and The Resurrection Project. The work of these organizations reflects Jewel-Osco’s pledge to support initiatives that mirror the company’s charitable giving strategy, which focuses on three areas: hunger relief, nutrition education and environmental stewardship, the retailer said.
The event also will highlight the unique flavors and richness of Latin cuisine, by showcasing exclusive dishes developed by culinary students from Chicago’s St. Augustine College.
“We are proud to observe Hispanic Heritage Month with an event that celebrates the culture and traditions of the Latino community,” said Jewel-Osco president, Keith Nielsen. “‘Sabor de la Herencia Hispana’ supports the culinary talent of Hispanic youth and recognizes the exceptional contributions of this community.”
