Aroma Donates Rice Cookers
August 4, 2010,
SAN DIEGO-Aroma Housewares donated 400 digital rice cookers to this city's WIC program designed to help women, infants and children eat well.
The donated digital rice cookers include a specialized brown rice function that prepares the whole grain, which can be difficult to cook on the stovetop, to perfection with just the press of a button. Brown rice became a part of the WIC food package in 2009.
WIC is a USDA-funded special supplemental nutrition program providing monthly benefits to nine million recipients. San Diego's WIC program serves over 37,000 each month.
