†ďHunger Task Force is a meaningful local organization and as a local business we are really happy to partner with them this holiday season,Ē stated Steve Sazama, founder and owner of Sazís. ďEspecially at this time of year, the idea of people going without food is difficult to grasp,Ē Sazama continued, ďand when we started evaluating who to focus on with this donation, the answer was pretty obvious. It had to be the Hunger Task Force.Ē
Sazís Catering Director, Joe Brueggemann reached out to Hunger Task Force Executive Director Sherrie Tussler with the proposal and was please that the idea was met with such enthusiasm. Tussler commented, ďHoliday parties are a way of sharing food and joy with one another, and we appreciate Sazís decision to make this generous donation so we can share food with more people in need this season.Ē
