Rabba receives 2023 Star Award for its Rabba Roots Community Giving Program

Held annually by the Canadian Independent Grocery Buyers Alliance and Distribution Canada Inc., the award program celebrates individuals, retailers and partners that make a difference

Mississauga, June 26, 2023—Rabba Roots, the corporate giving program established by Rabba Fine Foods to oversee its longstanding support of local groups in need, received top honours for its contributions to communities throughout the Toronto region.

The well-known 24/7 local market and its Rabba Roots program have been recognized with the Canadian Independent Grocery Buyers Alliance and Distribution Canada Inc. 2023 Star Award for the social responsibility category. The Star Award is given to a retailer or supplier partner who has shown commitment or leadership within a community-based environmental or charitable initiative.

“Being recognized in this way goes straight to my heart,” said Rick Rabba, president of Rabba Fine Foods. “The Rabba Roots Community Giving Program was established to bring together all of the work we’ve be doing for years to help the most vulnerable in our communities. We thank our partners and peers for this award but also the groups and volunteers that do the work of outreach and support at the local level, where it is needed most.”

Rabba Roots is a community giving program that is committed to contributing to the lives of its neighbours through access to food, health and emergency services. Through the program, Rabba works closely with local leaders, groups, schools and charities such as Good Shepherd Ministries, The Mississauga Food Bank and Trillium Health Partners. Led by Rabba Fine Foods and its vendor partners, Rabba Roots believes that supporting local institutions is necessary for a thriving community.
