Wegman’s partnership helps patients get good nutrition.
Wegman’s supermarket, the home of “One Stop Shopping,” is now partnering with NJSOCF to help patients get the extra nutritious foods they need to live successfully with cystic fibrosis.
The supermarket chain, known for the high quality of its offerings, has joined Pathmark in helping our adult patients do monthly food shopping. The cost of the food, up to $125 per month, is covered by our Adult Program.
“We have eleven CF clients currently shopping at Wegman’s,” said Donna DeRusso, account representative for Wegman’s Business Marketing Group. “Our motto is Eat Well, Live Well, so we are pleased to provide this service.”
Ms. DeRusso said Wegman’s has principals for healthy eating and living: strive for five (food groups): get moving; calories count; and measure your progress.
NJSOCF ‘s eleven Wegman’s clients are now shopping at different stores around New Jersey that include Bridgewater; Cherry Hill; Manalapan; Mt. Laurel; Ocean; Princeton; and Woodbridge.
“Wegman’s prides itself on outstanding customer service, so this fits right in with our approach,” Ms. DeRusso said. “We offer the highest quality foods, including fresh produce, meats, seafood and a wide variety of prepared foods. It’s all right here and we welcome our NJSOCF patients.”
