Customer Care’s Memorial Day Potluck – Eat, Ship, Love
It’s Friday, the start of a long, beautiful Memorial Day weekend. And our Customer Care Team is doing a superb job of multitasking between providing customer service and eating delicious barbecue, courtesy of the Stamps.com Memorial Day Potluck.
Food of Champions
When our Customer Care Team isn’t earning industry recognition (they were declared a 2011 ABA Customer Service Department of the Year finalist last week), they love to host company celebrations and today’s potluck is a hit! What’s on the menu? Barbecue-style chicken and meats, potato salad, rice, collard greens and fruit. The food is mighty delicious and, interestingly enough, it’s also well-travelled.
Fun Facts: Food Miles
While providing online postage and award-winning shipping solutions, we often come across interesting shipping facts, like food miles. It’s a term that refers to the distance food is transported from the time of its production until it reaches the consumer.
Did you know:
- On average, food travels between 1,500 to 2,500 miles* every time that it is delivered to the consumer.
- Red meat travels an average total distance of 248 miles.
- Beverages travel an average shipping distance around 205 miles.
