On Saturday, several Freshway Foods associates participated in a corporate challenge at Y-Fest, an event held by the Sidney-Shelby County YMCA to celebrate their 50th anniversary. Our team competed against associates from other local companies in three events.
Corey Abbott (Accounting) represented Freshway in the 5K race and came in first place overall.
Maverick Long (Human Resources), Conor Beer (Accounting Intern) and Caiden Smith (Procurement Intern) won first place in the 3-on-3 basketball tournament.
Raquel Bolheimer (Maintenance/HR/Accounting Intern) took fourth place in the boat challenge, where companies made boats using only cardboard and tape. Although she didn’t win the race, it was clear that the boat, which was made by our three summer interns, was the best looking boat in the race.
Everyone involved with the festivities had a great time supporting a local organization that does a lot of good in our community. For more information about becoming a member of the YMCA, click here.
We recently added to our complete line of deli salad kits with new Spring/Summer seasonal salads. These five new salads feature fusion flavors and premium ingredients, and are the perfect choice to add excitement to your deli case.
Buffalo Cauliflower Salad gives you the taste of hot wings in a fresh salad, and plays on the popularity of buffalo cauliflower as a healthier party option. More convenient than wings, you can take this salad anywhere – or to enjoy at home. This salad features fresh cauliflower, celery, carrots and green onions, along with grilled chicken, blue cheese, and our own Buffalo dressing.
Carrot Apple Salad is a refresh of a traditional homestyle salad. We’ve updated this classic with a sweet, tangy, and savory combination of fresh ingredients. This salad features crisp apples and pear, colorful rainbow carrots, dried cranberries, green onion, savory feta cheese, and our Cole Slaw dressing.
Creamy Corn & Cauliflower Salad is inspired by Elote, grilled Mexican sweet corn. This craveable salad is creamy and fresh, with fresh vegetables and a hint of spice. This salad features corn, cauliflower, cucumbers, red peppers, green onions, feta cheese, cilantro, and our own Lime Tajin dressing.
Lemon Pasta Salad tastes like summer. Some pasta salads can be heavy, but this salad is light and refreshing, with fresh vegetables and a lemony dressing. This salad features tri-color rotini pasta, corn, black beans, tomatoes, green onions, Parmesan cheese, and a light T
uscan Herb vinaigrette.
Tangy Broccoli Fruit Salad combines sweet fruit with crisp broccoli in a light, fruity dressing. Crisp and refreshing, this salad will appeal to consumers who want healthy, delicious salad options. This salad features apples, pineapple, mandarin oranges, broccoli, sliced almonds, and a Tangy Citrus viniagrette.
