RICAN Monthly Food Theme Program
RICAN distributes a specific selection of food to all guests participating in our weekly food distribution. The selection of food is unique compared to what is distributed the other weeks within the month and done in the concept of a theme. We trialed this concept in July and the response was overwhelmingly positive to where we began deploying this monthly. We wanted to give our guests a different selection than the typical shelf staple items generally received.
