RASTELLI CARES

COMMUNITY OUTREACH & SUPPORT

“In Life and In Business, Just Always Do the Right Thing.”

-Ray “Pop” Rastelli, Sr.

For generations, this simple motto has guided how we do business, but more importantly how we work to support our communities. For over 45 years the Rastelli family and companies have served and provided resources to charitable programs throughout the Northeast region, while working to positively impact the country and world as a whole.

The 5 & 2 Program

Our 5&2 Program reduces food waste by food companies, and turns those products into blessings for food banks and other organizations that help to fight hunger by feeding people and families for free. Along with our partners, we’ve provided 1,000’s of much-needed meals.

Each week, Rastelli Foods Group provides a list of items that are available at no cost to non-profit organizations that work to combat hunger or use food as a means to bring hope and positivity to people in need through our 5&2 Program.

Our goal is twofold: First, we want to address the issue of hunger and starvation facing our families and individuals in the Greater Philadelphia area. Second, we want to reduce food waste by our company, and by our food partners.
