Over the last 35 years, Nino Salvaggio International Marketplace has grown with our community. We realize that your loyal patronage of our stores has been a huge part of our success, and in turn, we have been an active member of the community. Part of our philosophy is to give back to those who have become part of the Nino’s family: from employees who have been part of the Nino’s team for over 20 years, to featuring hundreds of products from local growers and suppliers, to helping local schools, groups and charitable organizations, we have embraced our customers and established a reputation as an outstanding business leader throughout the area.
Nino’s has partnered with Forgotten Harvest to help feed those in need throughout our community. On a daily basis these groups pick up various Produce, Bakery and Grocery items that they take to their kitchen and serve or deliver to those in need. We are proud to give a half million pounds of food to these groups each year.
Nino Salvaggio Charitable Foundation for Children in Need
The Nino Salvaggio Charitable Foundation for Children in Need was founded by Nino Salvaggio for the express purpose of providing aid to children in need who may be sick, disabled, impoverished and the like.
Nino Salvaggio supports numerous fundraising events for schools, charities, religious groups and deserving organizations throughout our community. From offering the finest products and gift cards, to sponsoring or advertising the events, we understand the importance of a strong community and strive to assist whenever possible. If your group has a request for assistance, please pick up a Donation Request Form available at our Customer Service Desk. Please complete the form and attach a flyer or information about your event and bring it back to the Customer Service Desk. The Donation Request will be reviewed and you will be contacted with the decision. Please realize that we try to honor as many requests as possible, but sometimes we do get overwhelmed. We do ask that you give us 14-21 days for the review process to take place.
