Stewart Rahr donates $3 million to Prostate Cancer Foundation

BY Alaric DeArment

NEW YORK — Former Kinray owner Stewart Rahr has made a large donation to an organization looking for a cure for prostate cancer.

Saying the move "stunned the crowd," Rahr announced at a gathering at the Hamptons on New York’s Long Island that he would donate $3 million to the Prostate Cancer Foundation, an initiative run by investor Michael Milken, who was host to the event.

Other attendees included David Koch, Eddie Trump, former New York Gov. David Patterson and others.

Rahr announced a deal to sell New York-based Kinray to Cardinal Health in November 2010 for $1.3 billion, setting aside $100 million to establish the Rahr Foundation for philanthropic causes.

Stop & Shop recommends healthy additions to ‘go-to meals’

BY Alaric DeArment

QUINCY, Mass. — Nearly half of families rely on recipes that are fast and easy to make for dinner, according to a new survey of shoppers by supermarket chain Stop & Shop.

The chain, one of the banners owned by Carlisle, Pa.-based Ahold USA, announced the results of the 500-shopper survey, finding a preference for convenient meals among more than 40%. The preference for "go-to meals" — meals that are quick to prepare, require little skill and use ingredients already on hand — was due to a desire for more family time. Eighty-eight percent of shoppers rely on such meals at least once a week, including spaghetti, baked chicken and tacos. Other go-to meals include macaroni and cheese and hamburgers.

"Shop & Shop believes that families can have it all when it comes to dinner time — quickly, family-approved and nutritious meals," Stop & Shop nutritionist Julie Menounos said. "For these determined parents, Stop & Shop offers various tips that speed up their favorite recipes, getting them out of the kitchen more quickly with a healthy meal in hand."

The chain suggested boosting nutritional values by substituting ingredients like whole wheat or whole grain pasta for white-flour pasta, using black beans as an alternative to meat in tacos and also whole grains like brown rice, quinoa or farro as sides to baked chicken.
