 HEINZ FORWARDS FOOD TO AID IN RELIEF EFFORTS
 PITTSBURGH, Sept. 2 /PRNewswire/ -- In the aftermath of Hurricane


Andrew, Heinz U.S.A., division of the H.J. Heinz Company, has thus far donated approximately 8,000 cases of baby food and canned beans to help feed disaster victims.
 Within two days after the hurricane hit south Florida, Heinz U.S.A. had arranged to donate more than 2,000 cases of products through the Second Harvest Food Bank Network which is transporting the food to hard hit areas in both Florida and Louisiana. Also, the U.S. Air Force Unit at the Greater Pittsburgh International Airport airlifted 2,000 cases of food directly to Dade County in Florida.
 Additional donations of more than 3,000 cases of Heinz food have been made through Heinz U.S.A. retail customers in Florida, Heinz distribution centers and other sources. Heinz Baby Food was also provided to victims located at the Homestead Air Force Base.
 Through the Miami Children's Hospital, which is serving as a distribution point for residents in south Florida, cases of Heinz Baby Foods will also be available to those in need. This particular effort is being done in conjunction with the Children's Miracle Network of which Heinz U.S.A. is a national sponsor.
 In addition to food, the H.J. Heinz Company Foundation has given $2,500 to Second Harvest Disaster Relief. And Heinz has also provided empty 4-liter jars to be used in cash collection efforts administered by The American Red Cross in both New York and Pittsburgh.
 According to Gail Stull who is responsible for Heinz U.S.A's food donation/contribution program, "Heinz continues to monitor the situation through relief agencies in order to determine any additional needs that we may be able to meet."
