Raisins part of aid package

This article was originally published in Foodnews

RAISINS from Fresno, California have been delivered to victims of the Japanese earthquake through Second Harvest Japan. The Raisin Administrative Committee (RAC) arranged for the delivery of 100 cases of raisins in two separate shipments to Japanese shelters, representing more than 21 000 packages. The raisins were in sample packages left-over from the Tokyo Marathon. "There are over a quarter of a million people in shelters at the moment and many others in need of food still in their own homes. Thank you for allowing us to use these sample packs in this way," Jeff McNeil, a RAC marketing representative in Japan, said. "I am sure they will be much more meaningful to the people receiving them than we could have imagined."
