Ashley's Offers Plant-a-Seedling Activity

Ashley’s Food Delivery, the area’s only multi-restaurant delivery service, gave back to the community last Saturday, September 18th, by participating in the Whole Foods Market 30th Birthday Bash benefiting All Faiths Food Bank. Ashley’s hosted a “Plant-a-Seedling” activity, inspired by the company’s “Plant-a-Tree Program,” which has facilitated the planting of over 18,500 trees since 2,009.
Children visiting the Ashley’s Food Delivery booth planted certified organic vegetable seedlings (donated by Jessica’s Organic Farm) in biodegradable peat pots, then filled them with soil donated by Michael A. Gilkey, Inc. Landscape Architects. The planted pots, which children were able to take home with them, were completed with hand-decorated plant markers.

“We had a lot of fun participating in this event,” says Ashley’s Food Delivery owner Jeff Sniegocki. “Working with the kids to plant seedlings, and knowing that it was for the benefit of All Faiths Food Bank, was highly rewarding. We strongly support their mission and commitment to fight hunger in our community.”

The Ashley’s Food Delivery Plant-A-Tree program is part of the company’s green commitment. For every order placed, the restaurant delivery service plants a tree through the international Trees for the Future organization. “Our Plant-A-Tree program is one way we are trying to offset our ecological footprint,” says Sniegocki. More information about the Ashley’s Green Commitment is available on the company’s website,

Full delivery menus for all of Ashley’s restaurant partners are also available on the Ashley’s Food Delivery website. Delivery orders can be placed online, or with a customer service representative at 953-FOOD (953-3663).
