Family-Run Wegmans Wins Corporate Stewardship Award

Rarely before have I seen so many other business officials line up to speak with one of the Corporate Citizenship Awards winners. Tonight, Danny Wegman accepted the Corporate Stewardship Award on behalf of Wegmans Food Markets, and the fans from the audience of the upstate New York-based grocery store chain flocked to give their congratulations.

The Corporate Stewardship Award honors overall values, strategies, and operational practices in companies. Congratulations to Wegmans and all of the 2009 finalists!  

Wegmans’ CEO Danny Wegman accepted the award from U.S. Chamber President and CEO Thomas J. Donohue.

Corporate stewardship in action at Wegmans. The grocery retailer was nominated by Food Bank of the Southern Tier, which is among the regional food banks supported every year by the company’s Check Out Hunger campaign.
