Weis Markets is launching its second-annual Fight Hunger Food Drive, a month-long, chain-wide program offering its customers an opportunity to donate shelf-stable products to local food banks and emergency food providers.

It will be held in Weis Markets stores in Pennsylvania, Maryland, New Jersey, West Virginia and in Elmira, New York. “September is Hunger Action month and an important time for food banks as they prepare for the winter months.

Hepfinger, Weis Markets’ President and CEO. “Our Fight Hunger Food Drive gives our associates and customers the opportunity to support eleven food banks and the hundreds of emergency food providers they serve. In addition, our company will be donating $200,000 to these food banks at the end of the campaign.” Karen Buch, Weis Markets Director of Lifestyle Initiatives, added, “We have worked with food banks to compile a list of the shelf-stable foods they need most, including: cereal, apple sauce, pasta, granola bars, canned beans, 100% fruit juice, canned fruit, grated cheese, rice, boxed mac and cheese, peanut butter, soups, canned sauces, instant potatoes, canned chicken and fish, canned vegetables and boxed skillet dinners.” New this year is the availability of $3, $5 and $10 vouchers which can be purchased at each cash register.

A new, convenient pre-filled Fight Hunger Donation Bag will also be available at stores, containing pasta, sauce, fruit, vegetables, tuna, cereal and soup—all for less than seven dollars. After customers purchase the foods they would like to donate, they can simply place the items in a specially-marked collection cart near checkout.

Weis Scores Environmental First in PA

01/21/2018 | 6:10am to 6:10am

(Sunbury, PA) -- A Weis Markets’ store in Hanover, Pa., has achieved an environmental milestone worthy of federal recognition. Weis Markets’ Carlisle Street store in Hanover is the first supermarket in the state of Pennsylvania to earn a certification award from the GreenChill Advanced Refrigeration Partnership, a voluntary Environmental Protection Agency alliance with food retailers to reduce refrigerant emissions and decrease their impact on the ozone layer and climate change. The store attained a “silver” certificate by meeting tough benchmarks for cutting emissions that harm the earth’s protective ozone layer and contribute to global warming. “We’re pleased our Hanover store has achieved Green Chill’s silver certification level. While we have long focused on ways to conserve energy and lessen the environmental impact of our stores, this project represents an increased commitment on our part,” said David J. Hepfinger, Weis Markets’ President and CEO. “In the coming years, we will look for opportunities to incorporate these technologies into the stores we build or upgrade.” “This newly remodeled store represents quite an environmental achievement for Weis Markets,” according to Keilly Witman, manager of EPA’s GreenChill Partnership. “The Silver-Level Store Certification award puts them in a select group of environmental best-in-class supermarkets.” Just 26 of the nation’s 35,000 groceries have received GreenChill Store Certification awards, according to the EPA. To achieve silver certification, a store must meet stringent environmental criteria, including the following: --use refrigerants that do not damage the Earth’s protective ozone layer; --reduce the size of its refrigerant charge by at least 50 percent from the industry average; --reduce annual refrigerant emissions to 15 percent or less of total store capacity; --test refrigeration systems for adherence to GreenChill's leak tightness guidelines. “Our Hanover project allowed us to simultaneously improve our store and efficiently reduce the environmental impact of our refrigeration systems,” said Charlie Dinsmore, Weis Markets’ Director of Engineering and Store Service. By meeting or exceeding GreenChill certification criteria, Weis is helping to prevent deterioration of the Earth’s protective ozone layer and is combating climate change, the EPA says. Ozone in the upper atmosphere protects the planet from harmful ultraviolet radiation, which can cause skin cancer, cataracts and other ailments. But even refrigerants that don’t damage the ozone layer can contribute significantly to global warming. That’s why reducing store emissions is doubly important, the EPA adds. In addition, the GreenChill partnership is demonstrating that environmental leadership is good for business, too. By displaying the GreenChill logo, signifying their accomplishments, the retailers can attract more environmentally conscious shoppers, the EPA explains. GreenChill partners also have opportunities to share information about green refrigeration technology. GreenChill was launched in late 2007. Weis Markets became a partner in mid-2008. A formal in-store presentation is planned for this spring. Founded in 1912, Weis Markets operates 164 stores in Pennsylvania, Maryland, New York, New Jersey and West Virginia.

Dallastown Elementary's Superintendent's Weekly

01/21/2018 | 6:10am to 6:10am

mystery4The manila envelope that appeared on Principal Stephanie Ferree’s desk was a bit tattered, but the message inside was crystal clear: The Case of the Missing Energy. The Dallastown Elementary principal knew just what to do and promptly moved to action. She called on her third grade students to board the school bus as quickly and quietly as they could, and off they went to Cape Horn Weis Markets to solve this mystery. These elementary sleuths were going to improve the eating habits of N.R. Getic George by utilizing the food pyramid they learned about recently. It was time for The Weis Markets Great Mystery Grocery Tour! Sponsored by Pennsylvania Blue Cross, this activity sent the young sleuths storewide to explore healthy food choices under the guidance of Weis Markets mystery detectives. The children searched for clues throughout the dairy chillers, the fish and meat counters, produce and whole grains displays, reading nutrition labels and measuring sugar content to determine healthy options for eating and snacking… and to find N.R. Getic George’s energy. Mystery word puzzle books accompanied each activity. It was a helpful reminder of the basic food groups and a fun way of learning about healthy food choices. Upon closing their case—and finding N.R. Getic George’s energy— students were given special gift bags to remind them to make good nutritional choices.

Student Detectives on the Case

01/21/2018 | 6:10am to 6:10am

By NICKI LEFEVER - York Daily Record/Sunday News Peaking out from under an orange detective hat, 8-year-old David Trimmer was ready to crack the case. He trekked around the Weis Markets in Windsor Township on a recent Thursday morning, looking for clues on nutrition labels to solve the case of the missing energy of fictional character N.R. Getic George, who has been falling asleep in class. With the help of Chief Melissa Henry, Weis Markets Mystery Tour coordinator, David and his classmates from Mrs. Deborah Tracy's third-grade class at Leaders Heights Elementary School filled their baskets with healthy foods to get George out of his slump. The Weis Markets registered dietitians designed the educational field trip to teach kids nutrition by canvassing the grocery stores in search of clues, and Tracy was pleased with what she saw. "This was perfect timing," she said. "We are learning nutrition in science." David and his team -- Josiah Ilyes, Andrew Shealer and Simon Demandante -- were led by chaperone Marty Demandante. Their first stop was the cereal aisle. Henry asked them to find one cereal that they would all like to eat that had whole grain as the first ingredient. David ran to the Peanut Butter Cap'n Crunch. He read the label, realized the first ingredient was corn flour and put it back. He chose flavored Mini-Wheats instead. The group followed Henry to the next clue in the produce section. "I think we are going to get to pick a vegetable," David said. Henry gave the detectives the details she knew, that different colored vegetables provide different kinds of nutrients for a healthy body. She challenged the detectives to choose one fruit or vegetable from each color group -- blue/purple, red, green, white and orange/yellow -- to put in their shopping basket. Simon grabbed cauliflower, David got carrots, Josiah chose a red pepper, Andrew picked a cucumber and Simon ran back to find a purple turnip. mystery2Henry led the sleuths to the meat aisle to talk about protein and strong muscles. As they listened intently, the students learned that protein can come from plants and animals - everything from peanut butter to fish. Henry challenged them to pick one plant protein per group. David came running back to the basket with a can of beans, which suited the criteria, but Simon had already slipped something in the basket. "David, we already have peanut butter," Simon said. "Aw," David said. With full baskets, the students energetically followed Henry to the dairy section, where she dispensed the evidence that calcium found in certain dairy products helps build strong teeth and bones, but the food should have 20 percent of the daily allowance of calcium in it to be counted as a serving. The detectives poked around the refrigerated section, picking up Moose Tracks and Bear Foot Brownie ice cream. They found that while it contained calcium, it was only 8 percent. David grabbed the cottage cheese, but saw that it only had 10 percent calcium and put it back. Simon found milk with 30 percent calcium, and David spotted string cheese with 20 percent. mystery3Finally, the students went to the beverage aisle, where Henry showed them just how much sugar is in one can of soda - 9 teaspoons. They realized that water was the best choice and put it in their baskets. The group found their way back to their headquarters and unloaded the baskets to see what they had - all the ingredients to build a healthy diet. They used their clues to crack the final code. On the way out, David had a smile on his face. "Case closed Jack," David said to his friend as he left Weis Markets to get back on the school bus. A hamburger waited for him at lunch. "I like the protein," he said. CASE FACTS:

  1. N.R. Getic George feels weak and tired.
  2. He used to be a good student, but now he falls asleep in class.
  3. It's hard for him to get out of bed in the morning, and he skips breakfast.
  4. He uses his lunch money to buy cookies and snack food.
  5. He eats chips, drinks soda and plays video games.
  6. N.R. Getic George needs YOU, the Weis Detectives, to help solve the mystery of why he lost his energy.

THE MISSION: Find out how N.R. Getic George can get his energy back.

01/21/2018 | 6:10am to 6:10am

Weis Markets, one of the largest purchasers of Pennsylvania agricultural products, recently held a dinner honoring Pennsylvania farmers and local produce distributors who supply its 164 stores with local produce.

Pennsylvania Agriculture Russell Redding was the featured speaker at the dinner. “Today, buying local is the hot trend in the food business. But here at Weis Markets, it’s been a hot trend for 98 years,” said Weis Markets President and CEO David Hepfinger. “Our local produce suppliers have been the foundation of our buy local programs. Over the years, we steadily expanded our programs and now participate in the PA Preferred program which helps promote locally grown produce and products that are made or processed here in Pennsylvania.” At the dinner, Mr. Hepfinger spoke of the company’s other buy local initiatives including its dairy program. More than 95% of the milk processed at the Company’s dairy plant in Sunbury is supplied by Pennsylvania dairy farmers.

Weis Markets Receives Three EPA Environmental Achievement Awards

01/21/2018 | 6:10am to 6:10am

(Sunbury, PA) – The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency’s GreenChill Partnership recently presented Weis Markets with three 2010 Environmental Achievement Awards. The Company received GreenChill’s “Most Improved Emissions Rate Award,” the “Superior Environmental Achievement Award,” and the “Exceptional Environmental Achievement Award.” The awards are for the Company’s efforts to reduce the refrigerant discharged from the systems used to refrigerate the displays and frozen food cases in its 164 stores. These refrigerant emissions harm the earth’s ozone layer and contribute to climate change. “We are pleased to accept GreenChill’s awards and look forward to continuing our progress. In the coming years, we will continue to implement systems and programs that will help us reduce refrigerant emissions,” said Weis Markets President and CEO David J. Hepfinger. “Sustainability and reducing our carbon footprint are more than just admirable concepts – they are priorities that we will be investing in for years to come.” "Weis Markets improved their corporate refrigerant emissions rate by more than 20% in one year," said Keilly Witman, Manager of EPA's GreenChill Partnership. "That is the largest improvement of all GreenChill partner companies. Weis Markets' associates worked hard to achieve this improvement, and they should be very proud of their accomplishment." The EPA’s GreenChill Partnership works to promote green technologies, strategies and practices that protect the stratospheric ozone layer and reduce greenhouse gas emissions which contribute to global warming. The “Most Improved Emissions Rate” award is given to one partner company each year for achieving the biggest improvement in refrigerant emissions. GreenChill also presented Weis Markets with two additional awards for achieving emission reduction goals in 2009, the “Superior Environmental Achievement Award,” for meeting its challenging reduction goal and a second award, the “Exceptional Environmental Achievement Award,” for significantly exceeding this goal. Weis was one of only two supermarket companies in the nation to receive the exceptional achievement award.

New Stores Reduce Refrigerant

01/21/2018 | 6:10am to 6:10am

Weis Markets today announced three new stores it is building will incorporate technologies and systems reducing store refrigerant charges (usage) to 50% less than a typical supermarket, thus decreasing their impact on the ozone layer and climate change. In recent weeks, Weis Markets has begun the construction of superstores in three Pennsylvania locations: Bellefonte (Centre County), West Lawn (Berks County) and Fork Township (Northampton County). The announcement was made at an award ceremony at Weis Markets’ Carlisle Street store in Hanover. This unit was the first supermarket in the state of Pennsylvania to earn a certification award from the GreenChill Advanced Refrigeration Partnership, a voluntary Environmental Protection Agency alliance with food retailers to reduce refrigerant emissions. Keilly Witman, manager of EPA’s GreenChill Partnership presented an award to Weis Markets for achieving these standards. “Reducing the environmental impact of our stores is a key part of being a good neighbor and we are committed to doing so in the years ahead,” said Kevin Small, Weis Markets’ Vice President, Construction and Development. “As a long-time proponent of sustainability and recycling, we have embraced the next generation of technology that will allow us to reduce our carbon footprint and operate our stores more efficiently. We plan for these three new stores to achieve GreenChill certification.” "Weis' commitment to achieve GreenChill's certification standards for three new stores proves that the company is serious about its role in protecting the ozone layer and preventing climate change ," said Keilly Witman, manager of EPA's GreenChill Partnership. "It is important that companies understand that helping the environment doesn't end with one store. It has to become the business model of the future." To achieve GreenChill’s silver certification, a store must meet stringent environmental criteria, including the following: --use refrigerants that do not damage the Earth’s protective ozone layer; --reduce the size of its refrigerant charge by at least 50 percent from the industry average; --reduce annual refrigerant emissions to 15 percent or less of total store capacity; --test refrigeration systems for adherence to GreenChill's leak tightness guidelines. The Hanover store attained a “silver” certificate by installing a glycol refrigeration system reducing the refrigerant charge to less than half that of a typical supermarket. Just 35 of the nation’s 35,000 grocery stores have received GreenChill Store Certification awards, according to the EPA. Meeting or exceeding GreenChill certification criteria will help prevent deterioration of the Earth’s protective ozone layer and is combating climate change, the EPA says. Ozone in the upper atmosphere protects the planet from harmful ultraviolet radiation, which can cause skin cancer, cataracts and other ailments. But even refrigerants that don’t damage the ozone layer can contribute significantly to global warming. That’s why reducing store emissions is doubly important, the EPA adds. ABOUT WEIS MARKETS Each year, Weis Markets recycles 14 million pounds of cardboard and 1 million pounds of plastic bags.

Shenandoah Student Sleuths Solve Weis Whodunit

01/21/2018 | 6:10am to 6:10am

ERIC CONOVER/Staff Photo Mark Honus, a third-grader at Shenandoah Valley Elementary School, picks up a tomato Tuesday during a field trip to Weis Markets in West Hazleton.

Standard Speaker, December 1, 2010 BY JILL WHALEN (STAFF WRITER)

(Hazleton) N.R. Getic George was feeling weak and teachers noticed he was falling asleep in class.

No need to worry - third-grade sleuths from Shenandoah Valley Elementary School were called to crack the case of his missing energy.

As part of the Weis' Markets Mystery Tours program, students searched shelf by shelf and aisle by aisle for clues at the West Hazleton grocery store Tuesday.

"N.R. Getic George needs you, detectives, to solve his problem and get him on track again," said employee and chief of detectives Rita Black, who told the story of the fictional N.R. Getic George and led groups on the nutritional probe.

Their mission: to fill baskets with healthy foods packed with energy-supplying vitamins. The first stop for the hat-wearing and badge-displaying detectives was Aisle 6, complete with its lineup of cereals and breads.

"Grains come from plants, and wheat is a grain," Black said. "Some grains are better for you than others. Whole grains are the best."

Student detectives inspected several loaves of bread, looking for one made with whole grain. They didn't find it in a loaf of white bread.

"It doesn't say whole grain. It says 'enriched wheat flour'," Black explained, noting the importance of reading labels. "Enriched wheat flour is refined. It's good for you, but I think we can do better."

A loaf labeled "whole grain white bread" caught students' eyes, but again, it was made with the not-as-healthy refined flour.

"Are they trying to fool you?" Black asked of the confusing label.

After more investigating, students determined the best bet was a loaf of "100 percent whole wheat bread" made from whole wheat flour.

Students also inspected - and tasted - cereal made from whole grains.

"It was good," said Amber Polega.

Next up was the produce department, where students used checklists in their detectives' clue books to find fruits and vegetables in colors of the rainbow.

"We need to find something orange," teacher Karen Cicioni said.

"How about carrots?" asked student Brooke Schlauch.

Visits to the meat and dairy departments rounded out the investigation, and when all was said and done, students arrived at the answer to the mystery. They determined that N.R. Getic George - and all children - need to eat right, exercise and have fun.

"That's really the message of the USDA's 'My Pyramid' for kids," which focuses on the importance of making sensible food and activity choices, said Karen Buch, Weis Markets' director of lifestyle initiatives. Reaching third- and fourth-grade students is the goal since that is when students begin forming their lifelong eating habits, she said.

The Weis Mystery Tours program was developed by the grocery chain's team of registered dieticians and reinforces Department of Education health and wellness curricula, according to Buch.

"Our goal is to make the tours both fun and educational. We believe these tours will support the fight against childhood obesity," she said.

Students received a goodie bag filled with information and a healthy snack, and brought home a "Top Secret" guide about healthy lifestyles for their parents. Teachers also received support materials to reinforce what the children learned.

Gerstell Students Tour Grocery Store to Learn about Nutrition

A 20 oz. bottle emptied of the soda it once contained was almost halfway full of 10 teaspoons of sugar, showing the students from Gerstell Academy exactly how much they would ingest by drinking the beverage.

This is one of the many things third-graders at the Gerstell Academy saw while visiting Weis Markets of Westminster for its Mystery Tour field trip program Friday. The guided tour was designed by Weis Registered Dietitians to support the food pyramid nutrition principles and focus on teaching children how to make sensible food choices.

Gerstell Academy is a co-educational independent college preparatory day school in Finksburg for students grades K-12. The two guides, known to the students as inspectors, led them through five food stations in the store, where they collected clues and competed in friendly challenges to apply what they were learning and helped to solve a mystery.

At the different stations, children were armed with detective hats, magnifying glasses, clue pads and pencils to help them collect evidence while learning about fruits and vegetables, meats and beans, grains, dairy and beverages.

At the end of the tour, the clues helped to spell out the message, "Eat right, exercise and have fun!"

Science teacher Heather Serio said the children learned about the digestive system and healthy eating choices in class before going on the tour. "This reinforced everything I taught in the classroom," Serio said.

The children can take home the information they wrote down and reference what they learned even after the tour, she said. Many children were shocked when viewing first-hand the amount of sugar in soda.

Logan Wright, 8, said now that she knows how much sugar is in soda, she understands why her parents don't want her to have it.

Jake Irrgang, 9, said he was taught new information on the tour. "I learned that if you cup your hands, that's [the size of] one serving of fruits or vegetables," Irrgang said.

Many of the students enjoyed the hands-on component of the field trip. "I liked that we got to go around and pick things from the shelf," said Molly McCormick, 9. Paula Dackermann, a chaperone on the field trip and teacher at Gerstell Academy, said she thinks the children will now be more involved with their parents when they go out grocery shopping.

Alex Mascolo, one of the two tour guides at the Westminster Weis Markets, said this was the first tour she and co-worker Diana Hazelip had given. Mascolo said they both went to a three-hour training session where they played the part of the students. "I deal with adults all day at work, so it's fun to interact with kids [on the tour]," Mascolo said. She said she was happy her first tour went well and that there are already five more tours scheduled at the Westminster store.

Weis Markets and Its Customer Donate 25,248 Diapers to CHOW; Will Benefit Local Families in Need

01/21/2018 | 6:10am to 6:10am

(Sunbury, PA) – Weis Markets and its customers today presented 1,048 packs containing 25,248 diapers to the Community Hunger Outreach Warehouse which will help distribute these diapers to families in need throughout the Southern Tier. The total value of the donation is $10,040. It was made possible by customer donations and a dollar for dollar corporate match through the recent Weis Little Ones program. These donations were used to supply Huggies Diapers as part of its Every Little Bottom program. “One in three mothers does not have enough diapers or other basic baby supplies to take care of their babies. We worked with our customers and Huggies to help CHOW and its network of food pantries meet this critical need,” said Brad Kochenour, Weis Markets’ Regional Vice President. “It is also important to note that our Southern Tier customers were among the most generous givers in our five state market area. Their generosity will help a lot of young families this winter here in the Southern Tier.” “Ask any emergency food provider in our region and they will tell you that there is a tremendous demand for diapers. We are truly grateful to Weis Markets and its customers for the year round support and are also thankful for Huggies’ support,” said Deacon Edward Blaine, Director of CHOW. Overall, combined customer and corporate contributions will result in the donation of 6,930 packs of diapers, containing 171,900 diapers, to local food banks in Weis Markets’ five state market area. The overall value of this donation along with miscellaneous baby care products is $72,355. Diaper need is a growing problem. While parents in financial need may be eligible to apply for government funds through WIC or SNAP to offset food and formula costs, these supplemental funds cannot be used to purchase diapers. Huggies Every Little Bottom study of 2,000 mothers in the United States and Canada notes families who are unable to afford an adequate supply of diapers face difficult choices. Diaper-need results in babies being kept in dirty diapers for longer periods or they wear washed disposable diapers which result in increased irritation and make infants more prone to severe diaper rash. The report also found that mothers struggling with diaper-need miss school and work more frequently or they keep their child out of day care, which usually requires a day’s supply of diapers. One mother said, “Having a clean diaper not only keeps their child healthy and well, but lets them know that they’re cared for. I think it would be great if food banks and soup kitchens offered diapers also to those in need.” About Weis Markets Weis Markets currently operates 164 stores in its home state of Pennsylvania and in Maryland, New York, New Jersey and West Virginia.

Weis Little Ones

Weis Littles Ones Enables Customers to Donate Diapers and Infant Care Products to Families in Need

(Sunbury, PA) – Weis Markets today announced the launch of its new Weis Little Ones program, allowing customers to donate diapers, baby wipes and other infant-care products to babies and families in need throughout its market area. The program runs in Weis Markets’ stores from Sunday, October 17 through November 27. Customers can also make monetary donations by purchasing $1, $3 and $5 vouchers. Weis Markets will match these customers’ donations, which will be used to purchase Huggies diapers as part of its Every Little Bottom program. All donations will be forwarded to local food banks who have agreed to dispense infant-care items to families in need. “Many families are struggling to make ends meet. In fact, according to a recent study, one in three moms does not have enough diapers or other basic baby supplies to take care of her baby,” said Karen Buch, Weis Markets, Director of Lifestyle Initiatives. “This is a particularly challenging issue. While parents in financial need may be eligible to apply for government funds through WIC or SNAP to offset food and formula costs, these supplemental funds cannot be used to purchase the other essential infant-care items. With the support of our customers, we help will local food banks meet this critical need.” Huggies Every Little Bottom study of 2,000 mothers in the United States and Canada notes families who are unable to afford an adequate supply of diapers face difficult choices. Diaper need results in babies being kept in dirty diapers for longer periods or they wear washed disposable diapers which result in increased irritation and make infants more prone to severe diaper rash. The report found that mothers struggling with diaper need miss school and work more frequently or they keep their child out of day care, which usually requires a day’s supply of diapers. In the report, one mother said, “Having a clean diaper not only keeps their child healthy and well, but lets them know that they’re cared for. I think it would be great if food banks and soup kitchens offered diapers also to those in need.” Other major Weis Little Ones sponsors include Johnson’s, Weis Bear Essentials and Aveno Baby. Over the next six weeks, customers can purchase diapers, baby wipes, baby lotions, rattles or baby toys, baby shampoos, teethers, baby detergent and bibs or burp clothes and place them in designated donation carts.

Store "Mystery Tour"

01/21/2018 | 6:10am to 6:10am

Abington Journal, March 16, 2011

Story by Rafael Pimentel, Abington Journal Correspondent, Abington Journal Photos/ Ben Freda

CLARKS SUMMIT - Several third and fourth grade students from the Howard Gardner School answered the question “Where’s the missing energy?”March 2 during their nutritional “Mystery Tour” of Weis Market, 1020 Northern Blvd., Clarks Summit. Students venture into supermarket aisles in search of clues to solve the “Case of the Missing Energy.”

The tour is one of many that Weis plans to run. The program launched September 2010 and 3,000 kids have attended. The tours are free to all groups, such as public, private and parochial school districts, Boy and Girl Scouts, church groups and others.

The idea of the nutritional tours for children started when Karen Buch, Weis Markets director of lifestyle initiatives and a registered dietician, decided to access the “window of opportunity” to teach students. She mentioned that the third and fourth grade age ranges are peak stages at which to teach children.

“I hope for more schools to take advantage of this free service,” Buch said.

She piloted a program with two other dieticians at Weis’ York location in 2008. The program received positive responses from the teachers, according to Buch. She also said that students showed statistical improvement in their nutrition after the program.

The program comes at a crucial time, as the nation has reached a high childhood obesity rate.

abington 3According to the National Center for Disease Control, results from the 2007-2008 National Health and Nutrition Examination Survey (NHANES), using measured heights and weights, indicate that an estimated 17 percent of children and adolescents ages 2 to 19 years are obese.

According to Buch, childhood obesity is a huge concern and a big part of why the program is in place.

After the success of the pilot program, Buch was able to present the program to the executive team at Weis. They decided it was “the right thing to roll out to the chain” after some redesigning.

“I am really excited about the tours right now. They are really doing what we set out to do when we first started them,” Buch said.

All associates who conduct the tour complete a formalized three-hour training session and are evaluated by a store manager before giving the tour to students in order to maintain validity. The associates are provided with the materials to conduct the tours.

Choosing an associate to conduct the tours is not as simple as picking people from a certain department. Tour guides are selected based on personality, an ability to teach and love for children.

In each tour, the students are recruited as “detectives.” During their detective work, they engage in a number of exercises while learning. All of the activities are hands on, which Buch said was an important aspect of the program.

abington 2

“Diet is often amplified and placed under a microscope, but we have to remember to balance out those choices with regular, yet fun physical activity,” said Buch. “Schools have been limiting recess, which cuts into opportunities for physical activity. We do not want to send the wrong message to our children.”

Weis provides downloads at their website for teachers to use in their classes in preparation for the tour, as well as post-tour evaluations.

The children are taught healthy eating habits, with an emphasis on portion size. Buch said that the program also caters to different lifestyles. Students are taught they if they don’t eat meat, they can find alternative sources of proteins such as nuts and beans.

Schools interested in the program should send an e-mail to [email protected] or call the Weis Mystery Tours Coordinator at 570.988.3025.

(Sunbury, PA) – As part of its chain-wide program to reduce energy usage and conserve resources, Weis Markets’ Distribution Center, located in Milton, PA, recently upgraded its lighting system with low watt fluorescent and LED lighting, which lowers the 1.1 million square foot facility’s energy usage and costs by 30%. This new lighting system replaces metal halide and high pressure sodium lighting systems, which annually used 6.4 million kilowatt hours (KWH). The new lighting system will use 1.3 million kilowatt hours a year. The total cost of the program is $870,000. The project is also expected to benefit from PPL Electric Utilities’ E-Power rebate program, which helps companies become more energy efficient. "Our sustainability and conservation initiative is based on practical programs and systems that are good for the environment and helpful to our business,” said R. Kevin Small, Vice President, Construction and Development. “With the help of PPL, we’re able to reduce our distribution center’s carbon footprint and lower our lighting system’s annual kilowatt hours usage by 80% and its overall energy costs by 30%, which translates into nearly half a million dollars in annual savings. The energy we save could power three of our supermarkets for an entire year and is also the equivalent of three months energy usage for our distribution center.” Weis Markets – Sustainability Weis Markets recycled 47 million pounds of cardboard and 1.6 million pounds of plastic bags in 2010. It is currently building three superstores which will incorporate technologies and systems reducing store refrigerant charges (usage) to 60% less than a typical supermarket, thus decreasing their impact on the ozone layer and climate change.

Snacking sleuths invade Weis Market

01/21/2018 | 6:10am to 6:10am

The Dallas Post 10/9/2011 By Sarah Hite [email protected] Staff Writer Charlotte Bartizek photos/ For The Dallas Post SleuthA night at the grocery store never seemed as mystifying as it did on Monday, Sept. 26. Eleven snacking sleuths from Cub Scout Wolf Den Pack 232 out of Gate of Heaven Church crept through aisles with a magnifying glass in search of sustenance during a Mystery Tour at Weis Markets in Dallas. The goal of the evening was to find nutritionally-balanced food to reinstate the energy levels of the typically vivacious imaginary character N.R. Getic George. The fluorescent hat-clad gumshoes attended informational sessions led by two Weis employees at each section of the grocery store and then had the trying task of putting their newfound knowledge to work by searching out certain ingredients. Mystery TourAs a reward, the mini-detectives were able to sample some of their finds after choosing the proper foods for N.R. Getic George’s new nourishment. Tracy Manzoni, den leader, said she was interested in the tour after seeing a photo of students on a similar event in the newspaper. “It seemed interesting and this is actually part of their requirements as Cub Scouts,” she said. Scouts must study the food pyramid and help their families prepare meals as part of earning the Wolf Scout ranking. In their first task, the investigators had to identify fruits and vegetables in various colors. Weis Markets Mystery Tour leader Liz Cusma, of Dallas, said the program is helpful for young students who may not be exposed to so many different types of foods on a regular basis. “It’s interactive – we’re not lecturing them,” said Cusma. “They get to go out and find things for themselves.” Scouts clamored for the strangest produce – some carried mustard greens, others chose yellow wax beans – but in the end, the perky private eyes were more married in their choices than they thought. "What did the yellow group pick?” asked Cusma. “Peppers!” shouted scout Tanner Manzoni. Cusma asked another group, the ones with the bright orange hats, what they retrieved for poor N.R. Getic George’s lively lunch. “Peppers!” yelled Scout Jameson Tudor. The studious snoops seemed to learn quite a bit during the tour, but the cereal aisle was a tough cookie to crumble. SnackingThe inspectors needed to find cereals with whole grains as the primary ingredient, but 7-year-old Tudor just couldn’t resist one of his feel-good snacks. “I found one,” he said, clutching a box of Fruity Pebbles, while chaperones laughed.

Penn State Hershey and Weis Markets to Offer Free Mammograms to Women in Need

01/21/2018 | 6:10am to 6:10am

HERSHEY, PA– One in seven women will be diagnosed with breast cancer in her lifetime, but only 55 percent of Pennsylvania women receive annual mammograms as recommended over age 40. To help address one of the reasons why some women do not schedule annual mammograms—lack of a way to pay for the procedure—Penn State Hershey Breast Center and Weis Markets announced today a new partnership with the Pennsylvania Department of Health’s HealthyWoman Program to provide mammograms to women in need. The Weis Markets Mammography Voucher Program will provide vouchers for free mammograms to uninsured or underinsured women in central Pennsylvania.

Weis Markets' Associates Increase Commitment to Recycling

01/21/2018 | 6:10am to 6:10am

(Sunbury, PA) - On Monday, November 15, Weis Markets will participate in America Recycles Day, a day dedicated to the promotion of daily recycling programs. America Recycles Day was started by Keep Pennsylvania Beautiful. It encourages people to recycle more at home, work, and on the go and to buy recycled products. As part of this day, every Weis associate including those who work in the company’s 164 stores will take part in America Recycles Day by signing the Weis “Trash Treaty” commitment to take part in the company’s recycling programs. This trash treaty will be displayed in the Company’s stores. The Trash Treaty reinforces the company’s efforts to reduce waste, recycle and find new opportunities to reduce its impact on the environment. "We are proud that all Weis associates are participating in America Recycles Day and are making an effort to conserve natural resources by recycling every day," said David Hepfinger, Weis Markets President and CEO. "Today, it’s not just about trash or garbage. There’s more to it and we want our associates to be more aware of what can be recycled or reused.” As part of this pledge, Weis Markets’ associates are acknowledging that trash disposal is expensive and is a source of pollution that creates unnecessary greenhouse gases. And each associate pledges to understand the benefits of recycling to the environment and their company. “We know that 80 percent of what we discard can be recycled or reused. As a company that’s been recycling for 30 years, we recycled 1.5 million pounds of plastic bags and 45.8 million pounds of cardboard in 2009,” said Patti Olenick, Weis Markets Sustainability Specialist. “Our Trash Treaty reflects our collective commitment to do even more in the coming years.” Ms. Olenick also said her company is also involved in two pilot programs evaluating the feasibility of composting food waste typically thrown in the dumpster. Since the largest portion of a grocery store's waste stream is food waste, Weis Markets is looking for ways to recycle food waste and turn it into compost. As part of America Recycles Day on Monday, November 15, Weis Markets will feature a buy one get one free deal on its newly redesigned reusable shopping bags with a buy one get one free offer at our stores. The bags are made with microban to prohibit bacterial growth. About Weis Markets Founded in 1912, Weis Markets marked its 98th year of operation in May.

01/21/2018 | 6:10am to 6:10am

The tour leaders were wonderful! They spoke with energy, knew the material they were to present, and made the tour understandable and fun for the students. They kept the children involved, even drawing in the more shy ones, so that everyone had opportunities to participate. The lessons about nutrition were practical for children, using grocery items that they enjoy eating. The pre-tour activities helped to prepare the students for what the tour would be about. Great time for kids and chaperones!

My Girl Scout Troop really enjoyed the program. They were excited and were talking about it on the ride home. They learned a lot and will start looking at labels and thinking about what they are eating. They were talking about the lunch menu for school and if it had the right food groups and nutrients. Weis in Hazleton did an excellent job with the program and I am recommending it to our grade school PTA.

01/21/2018 | 6:10am to 6:10am

I think the best aspect of the tour was the chance for students to be actively involved. They loved marching to each station and searching the shelves! When they needed to look themselves for what was being discussed, it helped them remember it. It gave them a concrete experience of what could just remain abstract concepts. The students enjoyed the tour very much and were talking about it for a long time! They have now been analyzing their family grocery items when shopping.

The girls had a great time. They LOVED the goodie bags, hats and magnifying glasses. The girls all learned a new nutrition fact and got to try kiwi fruit, which most had not tried before and liked it. The women who ran the event were also fun and very good with the girls. The entire trip was great.

The tour leaders were EXCEPTIONAL. They made the trip. Their enthusiasm for the tour was very catchy. The students thoroughly enjoyed working with them. I loved the hands on experience they were given, especially filling in the detective booklets.

I could not have wished for a more informative and fun experience for my Cub Scout den. The boys had such a good time, and the tour leaders were the perfect choice. They related to the boys on their level and made the entire experience one that I have highly recommended for other scouts to participate in. It was perfect start to finish.

From the moment we arrived, it was obvious our store was very well prepared for us! They had baskets prepared for each chaperone that included hats, pencils, notepads and even nametags! Each station was prepared and awaiting our arrival. I thought the displays and activities at each station were an effective teaching tool. The students were engaged completing the activities in the notepads and the hands-on challenges that took place instead of just listening to someone impart information. It was evident that the curriculum was very well planned and organized from start to finish both in and out of the store.

"I had a fun time with you at Weis Markets. I got to learn about things that I didn't even know about. My mom didn't even know half of the things I learned about. The fruits and vegetables looked so good. I just wanted to eat them right up. I didn't know all the different things to help your body. The grains! I didn't know what wheat looked like before it was harvested. I liked that little challenge where we only had to pick the cereal with whole wheat, corn and oats…. I really had fun. I got to solve a mystery. Something I would never ever think of doing."

The tour leaders were wonderful! They spoke with energy, knew the material they were to present, and made the tour understandable and fun for the students. They kept the children involved, even drawing in the more shy ones, so that everyone had opportunities to participate. The lessons about nutrition were practical for children, using grocery items that they enjoy eating. The pre-tour activities helped to prepare the students for what the tour would be about. Great time for kids and chaperones!

"The entire event was a hit. Our girls had an awesome time and the parents who stayed to watch enjoyed it as well. The girls were engaged and paying attention the entire time and I think that's because the stations were educational while allowing them to move around a bit looking for clues. The girls liked sampling the foods, of course, and they enjoyed the props a lot".

The overall experience was great. It all fit together so nicely that it is hard to list the best part. I thought the theme was great and liked the opportunity to learn about a station then have the "hands-on" opportunity to find the products we discussed and evaluate their nutritional value. The stations were well done; very inviting, professional presentations with products the girls could relate to. Thank you for making this available for our group.

I wanted to tell you what an absolutely wonderful time my girls had with the staff at Weis. The program is very well thought out, educational and creative. I can't say enough about how much my girls loved this event. I want to thank you once again for offering this program to our children. It is such important information for them to have and we can't teach them enough about eating right and staying healthy. It's great to see Weis is on board with teaching kids about nutrition and echoing what they learn in school. Kudos for a job well done!

The ladies who conducted the tour made it very enjoyable. They put a great deal of effort and energy into making it a great experience for the students. The students stayed interested throughout the tour and finished with a huge CHEER! The best part was the way that the students interacted on the tour. The program and the program leaders really brought them together and made the Food Pyramid an exciting subject. It was a wonderful experience and we really appreciate the opportunity to learn with Weis!

$100,000 Donation Made To Central Pennsylvania Food Bank

01/21/2018 | 6:10am to 6:10am

Donation will provide 600,000 meals to residents in 27 Pennsylvania counties

SUNBURY, PA (July 30, 2013) – Weis Markets today donated $100,000 to the Central Pennsylvania Food Bank during a check presentation at the company’s Camp Hill, Pa. store. The $100,000 donation is a result of the Weis Markets’ 2012 Fight Hunger campaign, an annual program that runs during Hunger Action Month in September. The donation will be divided between the Central Pennsylvania Food Bank’s warehouse in Harrisburg, Pa. and its second location in Williamsport, Pa. Combined, these warehouses serve 27 counties throughout central Pennsylvania. “We believe whole heartedly in giving back to our communities and fighting hunger locally,” said Kurt Schertle, executive vice president for Weis Markets. “Food insecurity is a prevalent issue in our country, and anything we can do to alleviate these burdens for our neighbors is an honor. With this donation, the Central Pennsylvania Food Bank will be able to provide as many as 600,000 meals to help fight hunger here in our own state.” “What a boost to our mission!,” said Joe Arthur, executive director of the Central Pennsylvania Food Bank. “The timing is huge, as this $100,000 gift from Weis Markets comes in time to help thousands of children in Central Pennsylvania that are facing hunger as the summer vacation eliminates school lunches. Instead of being caught up in summer fun, too many of our children are worrying about where their next meal is coming from. Weis Markets is stepping up once again to make sure that the Food Bank can serve them.” According to Arthur, Weis Markets is a long-time, core partner of the Central Pennsylvania Food Bank’s mission to fight hunger in the region. “Over the years, Weis Markets has donated hundreds of thousands of dollars and extraordinary amounts of food, as well as provided discounted food purchases, public relations outreach and other help. We are grateful for our friends at Weis Markets for providing much needed support to central Pennsylvania neighbors in need.” Since 2008, Weis Markets’ Fight Hunger campaign has offered customers the opportunity to donate to local food banks and emergency food providers. Customers also have the option of donating $3, $5 and $10 vouchers, which are purchased at any Weis Markets’ cash register, and 100 percent of the proceeds are given to area food banks in the form of gift card donations to fill in any gaps in their food supplies. The sixth annual Fight Hunger program will run throughout the month of September at all 164 Weis locations. For more information about Fight Hunger, visit http://www.weismarkets.com/fight-hunger.

Smithfield And Weis Markets Partner With Richard Petty Motorsports To Donate 40,000 Pounds Of Protein To Weinberg Northeast Regional Food Bank As Part Of “Helping Hungry Homes” Tour.

Donation Equates to More Than 160,000 Servings to Pennsylvania Families

Mountain Top, PA – August 1, 2014 – In celebration of the upcoming Pocono race weekend, Smithfield and Weis Markets are partnering with Richard Petty Motorsports to donate a combined 40,000 pounds of protein to the Weinberg Northeast Regional Food Bank. This joint donation is part of Smithfield’s “Helping Hungry Homes” program. Racing legend Richard Petty, who has partnered with the Smithfield Helping Hungry Homes program to donate thousands of pounds of protein over recent years, will be present to discuss the importance of these donations from Smithfield, and to raise awareness about the necessity of providing assistance to our neighbors in need. Smithfield sponsors the Richard Petty Motorsports No. 43 Ford race team. Representatives from Smithfield and Weis Markets, alongside Petty, will present the donation to the Weinberg Northeast Regional Food Bank on Friday, August 1st, at 1:00 p.m. at the Weis Markets store located at 237 South Mountain Blvd, Mountain Top, PA. In addition, the first 50 fans to arrive prior to the start of the donation will receive a wristband to participate in an on-site autograph session following the donation presentation, during which Petty will sign one item per fan. “Hunger is a critical concern here in Northeast Pennsylvania. Recently released statistics report 23 percent of children suffer from food insecurity,” said Gene Brady, Executive Director of Weinberg Northeast Regional Food Bank. “With so many unsure of how they will provide food for their families, this donation of protein by Smithfield and Weis Markets is welcomed. Without the generosity of food donors, the Weinberg Regional Food Bank could not feed the hungry of Northeastern Pennsylvania.” “We are pleased to partner with Smithfield and Richard Petty Motorsports to make this donation to the Weinberg Northeast Regional Food Bank and it is an honor to do it with ‘The King’ himself, Richard Petty,” said David Gose, Weis Markets’ Senior Vice President of Operations. “As a company that has been strongly supportive of food banks throughout our markets, we strongly believe in giving back to the communities we serve, particularly during a time of increasing demand. This large donation will benefit thousands of people throughout Northeast Pennsylvania.” “The No. 43 Richard Petty Motorsports team is honored to participate in this donation with our sponsor, Smithfield,” said No. 43 team owner Richard Petty. “So many race fans are loyal customers of Smithfield, and shop at Weis, so it’s great to see them giving back to communities that support them, and our race team, throughout the year.” “Smithfield has made more than 195 donations across the country under the company’s Helping Hungry Homes program to food banks that serve their communities through local and emergency food pantries, low-income daycare centers and disaster-relief agencies,” said Dennis Pittman, Director of Corporate Communications and Public Affairs for Smithfield. “We’re proud to make this substantial donation in conjunction with our racing program to honor our fans, and help alleviate hunger in this area.” Smithfield Foods and its independent operating companies have a long history of stocking food banks, supporting after-school nutrition programs and providing food relief in the wake of natural disasters. In January 2008, Smithfield established their Helping Hungry Homes® initiatives to help ensure that American families in need do not go hungry. ### About Weinberg Northeast Regional Food Bank The Weinberg Northeast Regional Food Bank is a program of the Commission on Economic Opportunity (CEO), assists community organizations in obtaining food to provide to needy families, in particular children and the elderly, by collecting donations of wholesome but unmarketable food from the food industry and distributing it to these organizations.

WEIS MARKETS COMPLETES PURCHASE OF NELL’S SHUR-FINE MARKET IN HANOVER PA

WEIS MARKETS INSTALLS ENERGY EFFICIENT LED LIGHTING IN LEWISBURG STORE

01/21/2018 | 6:10am to 6:10am

Sunbury, PA (September 3, 2015) – Weis Markets’ Lewisburg store recently replaced its fluorescent lights with LED lighting, which will reduce the store’s lighting energy usage by an estimated 66%. The new lighting is now in use in all areas of the store and its parking lot. This is the company’s first store with 100% LED lighting. A key feature of the system is its automated dimming capabilities. This automation allows dimming to occur based on time of day, thus further enhancing the energy reduction. “As a sustainable company, we are always looking for ways to lower energy consumption and reduce our carbon footprint,” says R. Kevin Small, VP of Store Development. “In recent years, LED lighting has become a practical option due to improved performance and pricing. Ultimately, our Lewisburg store’s new LED lighting will reduce our annual carbon emissions by 594 tons which is equivalent to taking 115 cars off the road.” On average LED lights last 50 times longer than incandescent bulbs. LED bulbs differ from traditional incandescent bulbs in the way they produce light. While incandescent light bulbs passed electricity through a filament, LEDs produce light through the use of a semi-conductor that emits light energy when an electrical current is passed through it. The store also reduced its refrigeration energy load by installing doors on its refrigerated dairy cases, which were also upgraded with LED lighting. Reduced refrigeration load lessens the store’s energy consumption and impact on the earth’s ozone layer and global warming. Weis Markets has an award winning sustainability program. In 2014, it recycled more than 31,450 tons of waste including 22,387 pounds of cardboard, 479 tons of waxed cardboard, 720 tons of plastic bags and 4,000 tons of food waste composted ### About Weis Markets Founded in 1912, Weis Markets, Inc. is a Mid Atlantic food retailer operating 163 stores in Pennsylvania, Maryland, New Jersey, New York and West Virginia.

All proceeds from the sale of these bags will be donated to local Fight Hunger programs. Customers will be able to donate shelf-stable items, as well as purchase $2 and $4 vouchers during the checkout process. They can also round up their orders with 100 percent of the proceeds going to area food banks to help fill gaps in food supplies. “More than 49 million Americans live in food insecure households, including 6 million children,” said Mr. Gunn. “The Great American Milk Drive and our Fight Hunger program gives our customers a practical way help more than 100 hunger organizations in their communities.” Milk is Requested in Food Banks, Yet Missing According to Feeding America®, the nation’s largest domestic hunger-relief organization, milk is one of the items most requested by food bank clients, yet there is a nationwide shortage because it is rarely donated, and local hunger groups are struggling to meet the demand. Although Americans are generous with canned and dry goods, milk is much harder to donate because it is perishable. Feeding America clients receive the equivalent of less than one gallon of milk per person per year. The Great American Milk Drive, the first-ever national program to help deliver highly desired and nutrient-rich gallons of milk to hungry families who need it most, is working to change that across the country. Since The Great American Milk Drive launched in 2014, more than 398,000 gallons – that’s more than 6.3 million servings – of milk have been donated to people who rely on the nation’s food banks to help supply their families with not only the food, but also the good nutrition they need. What You Can Do Today Visit your local Weis Markets and consider making a small donation at checkout to help deliver a gallon of nutrient-rich milk to a family in need in your community. For each $2.00 donation, customers will receive a special Fight Hunger reusable shopping bag and for each $4.00 donation, the Mid-Atlantic Dairy Association will donate one gallon of milk to The Great American Milk Drive. If you are unable to donate in-store, you can donate at milklife.com/give. Entering your zip code ensures your donation is delivered to the food bank that serves your community. In addition, throughout September, for every share of this Great American Milk Drive image tagged with #MilkDrive, a one-gallon donation will be made to one of the 200 food banks served by Feeding America.

Robert F. Weis, Former Chairman of Weis Markets, Inc., Passes Away at 96

01/21/2018 | 6:10am to 6:10am

Robert Weis2 Robert F. Weis, one of the nation’s most successful food retailing executives over the past half century, has died. Mr. Weis, 96, was the principal figure in the growth and continued success of Weis Markets, one of the most consistently profitable supermarket companies in America. Mr. Weis was the former Chairman of Weis Markets Inc, a food retailer operating 163 stores in Pennsylvania, Maryland, New Jersey, New York and West Virginia. In 2014, the Company generated $2.8 billion in revenues. A lifelong resident of Sunbury, PA, Robert Weis was born on June 10, 1919 to Harry and Stella Freeman Weis in the town where his father and his uncle, Sigmund, opened their first store, known as Weis Pure Foods, in 1912. In the years that followed, the two brothers opened stores throughout Central Pennsylvania. Early in his life, Robert Weis worked in his family’s stores where he stood on a box to operate a cash register in his younger years and later bagged produce and delivered groceries to customers. Mr. Weis attended Mercersburg Academy in Mercersburg, PA. After graduating from Yale University in 1941, Mr. Weis was drafted into the U.S. Army. He was subsequently assigned to the U.S. Army Air Force officer training program, ultimately attaining the rank of captain. At the end of World War II, Mr. Weis and his cousin Sigfried returned from the armed services to work for their respective fathers’ company. Early in his career, Mr. Weis worked in various positions including operations, distribution, marketing, procurement, human resources, real estate and store construction. Ultimately, he would oversee the company’s finances, real estate and store construction. In 1965, Weis Markets became a publicly traded company and is today listed on the New York stock exchange (NYSE:WMK). At the time, their company operated 52 stores and employed 2000 associates with revenues totaling $111 million. In the subsequent decades, Mr. Weis helped oversee Weis Markets’ growth and expansion into six states. In 1995, Mr. Weis became Chairman of Weis Markets, Inc. Since 2009, his company has made record investments in its growth, acquiring 11 units, upgrading more than 100, and opening nine new stores. In 2001, after a multi-year dispute with the heirs of Sigfried Weis, who attempted to force a sale of Weis Markets, Mr. Weis directed a repurchase of their stock. He subsequently became the company’s largest shareholder. This move solidified the Company’s strategic direction and helped preserve more than 18,000 jobs, including more than one thousand in the Sunbury area where it continues to operate a store support center, distribution center, milk, ice cream and meat plants. Mr. Weis and his wife, Patricia, were married for 57 years. They are the parents of three children: Jonathan Weis, who serves as Weis Markets’ Chairman, President and Chief Executive Officer, and is married to Analisa Barreto Weis; Colleen Ross Weis of New York City, who is a 20th century decorative arts specialist and married to Martin Laiks; and Jennifer Weis Monsky, also of New York City. Jennifer is executive editor at St. Martin’s Press and married to John R. Monsky.  Mr. Weis is also survived by nine grandchildren and a sister, Ellen Wasserman of Baltimore. Mr. Weis was an active philanthropist.   He and his wife have supported a number of major philanthropic projects and causes, including: Bard College in Annandale-on-Hudson, NY, where Mrs. Weis is on the board of trustees; Franklin and Marshall College in Lancaster, PA where they established the Robert F. and Patricia G. Ross Weis Professorship in Judaic Studies and the Weis College House; Susquehanna University in Selinsgrove, PA where they helped establish the Blough-Weis Library and the Stella Freeman Weis Cultural Endowment; the Lown Cardiovascular Research Foundation of Boston; the Cystic Fibrosis Foundation; and Sunbury Community Hospital during its non-profit years. Mr. and Mrs. Weis also helped establish the Department of Judaic Studies at Yale University and endowed a professorship for this department. After the Chernobyl disaster in 1986, Mr. and Mrs. Weis sponsored a flight of Jewish survivors who emigrated to Israel. Mr. Weis was also a longtime supporter of the United Jewish Appeal (UJA) and was treasurer of UJA’s Sunbury chapter for 55 years. Throughout his life, Mr. Weis was a strong supporter of Israel and once accompanied former Israeli Prime Minister Golda Meir on a helicopter flight over the Sinai Desert. Mr. Weis was a longtime member of Congregation Beth El in Sunbury and was the major donor to his synagogue. Mr. Weis was generous to numerous local causes in his hometown of Sunbury and the Central Susquehanna Valley where he often made private donations to local charities. In recent years, his company has made approximately $6 million in donations to community-based health care organizations, food banks, educational foundations and cultural institutions throughout its five state marketing area. During his life, Mr. Weis served as Vice Chairman of the Board of Trustees of Susquehanna University, where he held an honorary doctorate of letters. He was a past president and member of the Board of Trustees of Sunbury Community Hospital, past president of the Sunbury Chamber of Commerce, a past director of Susquehanna Bancshares, a Bank Holding Company in Pennsylvania and Maryland and a former Chairman of the First National Trust Bank of Sunbury.

Weis Markets’ Stores Raise $103,000 for Local Food Banks

Fight Hunger program generates donation of 5,074 gallons of milk for local families in need SUNBURY, PA (October 29, 2015) – Weis Markets’ stores raised $103,000 in donations for 100 local emergency food providers in its five state market area while also generating a donation of 5,074 gallons of milk through its partnership with the Great American Milk Drive. The donations were raised during Hunger Action month in September. “Our customers’ generosity will help generate more than a half million meals in the communities we serve. This year, we added a new option which allowed our customers to donate a gallon of milk to a local family in need. This helped generate a donation of more than 5,000 gallons of milk,” said Richard Gunn, Weis Markets Senior Vice President. “Ultimately, these donations will benefit more than 100 local hunger organizations who serve thousands of people. We are committed to helping these organizations and are truly grateful to our customers for their support.” This year’s Fight Hunger program had two new features. A $4 donation generated a gallon of milk for a local hunger organization, and customers could also buy a Fight Hunger reusable bag for $2, with all proceeds going to local hunger organizations. The Fight Hunger food drive benefits local food banks and pantries throughout the five Mid-Atlantic States in which Weis Markets operates. Regional food banks participating in the program and who also helped coordinate local pick-ups include: The Second Harvest Food Bank of the Lehigh Valley and Northeast (PA); The Central Pennsylvania Food Bank (Harrisburg, PA); The Central Pennsylvania Food Bank (Williamsport, PA); The Maryland Food Bank (MD); The Commission on Economic Opportunity/The Weinberg Northeast Regional Food Bank (Wilkes-Barre/Scranton, PA); Greater Berks Food Bank (Reading, PA); Philabundance (Greater Philadelphia Area, PA); Community Hunger Outreach Warehouse (CHOW)/Broome County Council of Churches (Broome County, NY); Food Bank of the Southern Tier (Elmira, NY); Food Bank Network of Somerset County (Somerset County, PA); Northwest Community Action Program NORWESCAP Food Bank (Phillipsburg, NJ); and Mountaineer Food Bank (WV).

4,000 Gallons of Milk Donated to Central PA Food Bank

01/21/2018 | 6:10am to 6:10am

milk display   loading the truck That gallon of milk you consider a staple in your refrigerator is missing in area food banks throughout the region, and local children in need are missing out on the essential nutrients that milk provides. To help close the gap on this need, Weis Markets partnered with the Great American Milk Drive during Hunger Action Month™ last September, generating a donation of more than 4,000 gallons of milk for the Central Pennsylvania Food Bank. On Friday, March 4 at Store 125 in Camp Hill, we provided the Central Pennsylvania Food Bank with its first delivery of this much needed donation item.  More than 1,000 gallons were loaded onto a Central Pennsylvania Food Bank’s delivery truck to be distributed to local families in need. “We are dedicated to the communities we serve, and we are excited to deliver this first installment of milk to the Central Pennsylvania Food Bank,” said Dennis Curtin, Director of Public Relations. “Our generous customers really committed to the Great American Milk Drive last September and we are proud to provide this much needed donation to our community.” According to Feeding America®, the nation’s largest domestic hunger-relief organization, milk is one of the items most requested by food banks, yet there is a nationwide shortage because it is rarely donated, and local hunger groups are struggling to meet the demand. Although Americans are generous with non-perishable items, such as canned and dry goods, milk is much harder to donate because it isn’t shelf stable. "The donation from Weis Markets is part of an amazing contribution of fresh Weis Quality milk to our food bank,” stated Central Pennsylvania Food Bank Executive Director, Joe Arthur.  “It will provide more than 64,000 eight-ounce servings of milk to Central Pennsylvanians in need, many of them children. We are thankful to Weis Markets’ executives, associates and customers for this incredibly valuable donation to our mission.” We will deliver the remaining 3,000 gallons of milk to the food bank in the coming weeks.

Gas Rewards

Fill the Cart…Fuel the Car!

How Does It Work? “The more you spend, the more you save!” 

Save $0.10 per gallon for every 100 Weis Reward Points you redeem. Points can be redeemed at:

     Weis Gas'N'Go Any Location
     Sheetz Any Location
     Highs Participating Locations
     Maribito Participating Locations
     other Participating Locations

Although you can accrue an unlimited amount of Weis Rewards Points, you may only redeem 1,500 points ($1.50 per gallon) at a time. If you have more than 1,500 Weis Reward Points, the remainder will stay on your account for later use. You will not be able to receive cash back with your Weis Rewards Points redemption if you have more than 1,500 points. There is a limit of 20 gallons per transaction when redeeming your Weis Rewards Points. You may only fill up one car per redemption, even if you are purchasing less than the 20 gallon limit.

There is a maximum discount of $1.50 per gallon.

When redeeming your Weis Reward Points for Gas Rewards, you must redeem all of your Weis Reward Points (up to 1,500 points). If you have more than 1,500 points, the left over points will be remain on your account.

We have found that average redemption and vehicle tank size make a 20 gallon limit very reasonable for the majority of our customers. We have tested high limits and found that gas was being dispensed in unapproved fuel containers that posed a hazard to the customer, our Gas N’ Go associates, and the environment. We cannot ignore these safety concerns

While any customer with a Preferred Shopper’s Card can redeem Weis Reward Points for Gas Rewards, there are few stores that currently do not have a partnering gas station close by: Delaware 271, 272, 273, 274 – Lewes, Millsboro, Millville, and Rehoboth Beach New York 116 – Elmira, NY New Jersey 143, 145, 147, 230, 234 – Newton, Hackettstown, Franklin, Hillsborough, and Flanders Pennsylvania 231, 233 – Conshohocken and Norristown

The Gold Card offers are in addition to our other Weis Club values like Gas Rewards, Price Freeze, Get Grillin' specials, Facebook exclusive coupons, load-to-card eCoupons and our weekly advertised savings.

Does it cost anything to be a Gold Card Customer?

There is no membership fee. The Gold Card is free to customers who qualify for the program.

How do I become a Gold Card Customer?

Twice a calendar year Weis will send out Gold Cards to qualifying customers based on their shopping habits the previous 6 months.  In order to qualify as a Gold Preferred Customer you'll need to spend at least $3,500 annually (about $67 dollars per week) or shop at our store on average twice a week. You can check your progress towards becoming a Gold Card member by logging into your MyWeis account.

How does the Gold Card work?

The Weis Gold Card is a long-term program designed to improve the value of your shopping trip at Weis Markets, and uses the same club card number you've always had, not affecting any other club cards in your household.

Can I give my coupons to other customers?

The offers are good only for the intended Gold Card Shopper and needs to be presented with a Preferred Shoppers card from that household.

Can Weis accept copies of Gold Offers?

The coupon has to be presented in its original form.

I lost my Gold Card, how do I get a new one?

Please call the toll free Gold Card hotline number 855-720-7400.

Can I have a duplicate Gold Card for my household?

At this time there is only one Gold Card sent out per household. However, all current cards from the household will still be accepted.

Beth Stark, RDN, LDN

I oversee the growing Weis Dietitian team and lead the creation of health and wellness programs that educate our shoppers on how to make nutritious food choices.  What truly drives me in this role is being able to positively influence others to help them prevent chronic diseases, feel well and live their best life.  We reach millions of Weis shoppers with our nutrition messages each year so I strive to make them timely, practical and achievable.  In the kitchen, I often stretch recipes with quinoa, rice, veggies or beans to get extra servings out of them or I prepare double batches so there will be quick lunch and dinner options available all week long.

In my down time I love to travel and be active outside with my husband, one-year old daughter and two pups.

As a dietitian at Weis Markets, I truly appreciate the opportunity I have to work on specialty wellness initiatives and connect with shoppers through our Ask a Weis Dietitian service, store tours, cooking demos and media opportunities. I like to translate the latest nutrition science and research into easily understandable information in order to help individuals make better choices for themselves and their families. A healthy eating routine needs to be one that you can maintain for a lifetime and that includes sweets and treats! I truly live by the phrase “Everything in moderation.”

In my spare time I enjoy doing art projects with my nieces and watching hockey.

 

In-Store Registered Dietitian Nutritionists

Our team of in-store dietitians is available to help you make the best food choices whenever possible. Through nutrition workshops, tasting events, individual consultations, cooking demos, Cart Smart™ tours, and even health screenings in the pharmacy, the Weis Dietitians are prepared to help you reach your goals.

I enjoy bringing awareness to healthful foods and teaching people that eating healthfully can be fun and taste good too! Practicing mindful eating while savoring all foods is a useful skill that everyone should adopt. Overall, the best approach to maintaining a long-term healthy diet is to ditch the quick-fix fad diets and find an eating pattern that includes healthful foods you enjoy.”

When I’m not promoting healthful eating to the community, I enjoy exploring new places with my husband, spending time outdoors, and tackling the latest home improvement project.

I have a passion for providing nutrition expertise and innovation to our customers, as well as our community. Food is a powerful tool in weight management, chronic disease prevention and management, and overall health promotion. My motto is keeping it simple and mindful. Whether your goal is weight loss, fueling up for workouts, tailoring to food allergies, or managing chronic disease, I’ve got all your nutrition concerns covered!

Outside of work, you can find me running, fishing, or spending time with family.

I thoroughly enjoy meeting with customers to help them achieve their goals towards a healthier lifestyle. As a dietitian who spent the last ten years working within the geriatric population and as a wife and mother to two young boys, I don’t believe in just restricting and dieting. It’s important to incorporate health and wellness into your life in a way that makes you feel good about the changes you and your family are making. Let your kids be involved in meal preparation by letting them pick out a new fruit or vegetable each time you go to the grocery store.

In my spare time, I enjoy spending time outdoors with my family, ice skating with my son, and boxing.

I love providing customers with the nutrition know-how needed to adopt a healthy lifestyle. I believe that nutritious daily food choices can help prevent chronic disease and assist in managing these conditions. I am passionate about food and nutrition and enjoy sharing this passion with my customers and the surrounding community. I think that learning to prepare healthful home cooked meals and snacks is a great lifestyle habit to meet your nutrition goals.

In my spare time I enjoy cooking, baking, and traveling!

Weis Markets Continues to Reduce Environmental Impact

New report shows company’s historic year of growth extends to sustainability efforts

Sunbury, PA (October 23, 2017) – As Weis Markets expanded its customer base and footprint by more than 25 percent in 2016, the company also grew its sustainability efforts across the company and continued to reduce its environmental footprint, according to the company’s new report Weis Sustainability 2016: Growing Greener and Investing in Our Future

Since launching its sustainability efforts in 2008, the company has incorporated energy-saving measures designed to lower energy consumption, fossil fuel dependence and carbon emissions. These sustainability initiatives have helped Weis to reduce its carbon footprint in its existing stores by 25.4 percent as of mid-2016.

Over a three-month period in 2016 Weis acquired 44 new stores, expanding the company’s footprint to 204 stores in seven states. As part of that acquisition Weis expanded its sustainability programs into all stores, implementing key sustainability practices that reduce emissions in new store design and remodels, expanding the company’s recycling center and fuel efficiency of its vehicles, and growing the Fresh Rescue Program. These newly-acquired stores slightly lessened the company’s carbon footprint reduction to a total of 21.8 percent for 2016, as the stores continue to be retrofitted with key sustainability measures.

“This expansion helped to bolster and expand our presence in the Mid-Atlantic region,” said R. Kevin Small, vice president, store development at Weis Markets.  “But just as importantly, it has allowed us to expand our efforts to reduce our carbon footprint, bring our sustainability practices into new markets, and establish relationships with the new communities that we serve. This benefits our environment, customers, associates and shareholders.”

Key sustainability achievements and accolades for Weis Markets in 2016 include:  

  • Increasing recycling by more than 8.3 percent over the previous year. The company recycled more than 25,600 tons of cardboard, 607 tons of mixed paper, 786 tons of plastic bags and 170 tons of recycled pharmacy bottles. 
  • Being recognized by the Environmental Protection Agency’s (EPA) GreenChill program, which encourages reduced refrigerant usage to help lower the overall environmental impact on the ozone layer and climate change. Awards in 2016 include the 2016 Superior Goal Achievement, the 2016 Exceptional Goal Achievement, and 2013-2017 Store Re-Certification Excellence.
  • Expanding its fleet of energy-efficient vehicles, hitting its goal of leasing 30 vehicles with “clean diesel” exhaust technology.  
  • Receiving LEED® Silver Certification from the U.S. Green Building Council for the company’s Fogelsville, PA store.  The design features now serve as the gold standard for all future store remodels and new buildings.
  • Expanding its 1.2 million square-foot distribution center that streamlines the company’s supply chain while minimizing its environmental impact through use of an ammonia refrigeration system, and also expanding the Weis Recycling Center. 
  • Committing to reduce food waste in Weis operations 50 percent by 2030 as one of five grocers for the inaugural class of the U.S. Food Loss and Waste 2030 Champions, convened by the EPA and the United States Department of Agriculture (USDA).

“As we approach the 10th year tracking sustainability metrics, I am continually impressed by the enthusiasm and dedication our associates have for meeting the goals that reduce our environmental footprint,” said Patti Olenick, sustainability manager for Weis Markets. “It is a true team effort, ranging from our corporate leaders to our staff in the distribution centers and all of our stores.”

environmentalThe Environment is now more than ever in need of our helping hands, and Weis Markets is proud to be a member of the U.S. Green Building Council (USGBC) LEED program & the EPA's GreenChill Partnership. LEED (The Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design) is an internationally recognized green building certification system providing it's members like Weis Markets a framework for identifying and implementing practical and measurable green building design, construction, operations and maintenance solutions. As a member of USBGC we are learning new ways leverage technology into our building design to improve building performance with a goal to maximize energy savings, increase water efficiency, reduce CO2 emissions, improve indoor environmental quality, and increase awareness of good stewardship of resources. Weis Markets is currently using technologies such as high-efficiency lighting, automated building control systems, energy control recommissioning, and variable frequency drives (vfd's) to reduce energy consumption in our current facilities and researching and modeling a number of advanced technologies such as desiccant HVAC units, heat-reflective roof covering, high-efficiency kitchen exhaust hoods, energy-efficient glass doors for dairy cases, LED refrigerated case lighting, and distributed refrigeration with energy-efficient scroll compressors for implementation into our new facilities. We are also proud of our accomplishments resulting from our membership with the EPA's GreenChill Advanced Refrigeration Partnership which is a cooperative alliance with supermarkets to promote advanced technologies, strategies, and practices that reduce refrigerant charges and emissions of ozone-depleting substances and greenhouse gases. Since joining the GreenChill Partnership we have committed to the utilization of new practices and technologies to reduce refrigerant charges and leaks in our stores, and we have won GreenChill's Silver Certification for our Remodel project in Hanover, PA. We look forward to doing our part to build a better future by improving the workplace for our associates and shopping experience for our customers.

Weis Markets Launches the PepsiCo Dream Machine Recycling Initiative

Weis Markets is excited to now offer the PepsiCo Dream Machine as a convenient and rewarding way for you to recycle! When you recycle your plastic bottles and aluminum cans in a Dream Machine, you can:

  • Earn personal reward points, redeemable for local discounts;
  • Support post-9/11 U.S. veterans with disabilities; and
  • Help make our planet a little greener.

Many people are shocked to learn that only one-third of the plastic beverage containers in the United States are recycled – that means that two-thirds often wind up as litter, on our roads and in our oceans and waterways. But, if every household in the U.S. recycled just three more plastic bottles a month, we could divert more than 23 million pounds of plastic from our landfills and increase the amount of recycled plastic available to incorporate into new bottles, which would reduce greenhouse gas emissions, save energy, reduce air and water pollution and conserve our planet’s natural resources. The Dream Machine recycling initiative – created by PepsiCo in collaboration with Waste Management, Keep America Beautiful and Greenopolis – is introducing thousands of recycling kiosks and bins at high-traffic, public locations around the country to help increase the U.S. beverage container recycling rate by giving Americans convenient access to recycling receptacles. A total of 28 Dream Machine kiosks are now located at various Weis Markets locations in the greater Harrisburg, Pennsylvania area for on-the-go recycling. In addition to being kind to the environment, each time you recycle in a Dream Machine you are taking action to help support a disabled U.S. veteran – the more bottles and cans people recycle in a Dream Machine, the more support PepsiCo will provide to the Entrepreneurship Bootcamp for Veterans with Disabilities, a national program offering post-9/11 disabled U.S. veterans free education and experiential training in entrepreneurship and small business management. On top of that, the intelligent kiosks are computerized receptacles that include a personal reward system, operated by Greenopolis, that allows consumers to earn points for every bottle and can they recycle, redeemable for local discounts and coupons on entertainment, dining and travel at Greenopolis.com. So, please visit a Dream Machine located at Weis Markets and join us in making this exciting recycling initiative a success! For more information on the program, visit Facebook.com/DreamMachine.

Wheat-Free Diet

01/21/2018 | 6:10am to 6:10am

wheat-freeWheat allergy is an abnormal immune system response to one or more of the four proteins found in wheat, including albumin, globulin, gliadin and gluten. Wheat allergy is most commonly seen in children, especially those with an immature immune or digestive system, and is usually outgrown before reaching adulthood. Additionally, individuals with a family history are at an increased risk for an allergy to wheat. Wheat allergy is sometimes confused with celiac disease, which is a digestive disorder that creates an adverse reaction to the gluten found in wheat, rye and barley. Don’t assume that you have celiac disease unless a diagnosis has been confirmed by your doctor.

Symptoms

The symptoms of a wheat allergy reaction can range from mild to severe and often occur within a few minutes to a few hours of eating a wheat-containing food. Mild symptoms may include the following:

  • Swelling, itching or irritation of the mouth or throat
  • Hives, itchy rash or swelling of the skin
  • Nasal congestion
  • Itchy, watery eyes
  • Difficulty breathing
  • Cramps, nausea or vomiting
  • Diarrhea

On rare occasions, allergic reactions may result in anaphylaxis, which requires immediate attention and symptoms include:

  • Constriction of airways
  • Shock and a severe drop in blood pressure
  • Rapid pulse
  • Dizziness or loss of consciousness

Diagnosis

Your doctor may use a combination of tests to confirm a wheat allergy. Specific tests or diagnostic tools may include:

  • Skin test – A skin prick is used to expose small amounts of the protein to your body. A food allergy is confirmed by the presence of a raised bump or hive at the prick location.
  • Blood test – A blood test, also referred to as an IgE test, measures your immune system’s response to the proteins found in soy by counting the number of specific antibodies in your blood.
  • Food diary: You are asked to maintain a detailed record of everything you eat, noting if symptoms are experienced.
  • Elimination diet: The offending food is eliminated from the diet. Then, under the direction of your doctor or a registered dietitian, you will gradually add these foods back into your diet and note if/when symptoms return.
  • Food challenge testing: Following ingestion of gradually increased amounts of the suspected food allergen, you undergo careful supervision for a few hours or days to determine if any allergy symptoms occur.

Survival Skills

The only treat treatment for a wheat allergy is avoidance of wheat and wheat-containing foods. While some wheat-containing foods are obvious such as bread, cereal and pasta, wheat protein also appears in many foods as an additive. Common sources of wheat:

  • Breads
  • Breakfast cereals
  • Pasta
  • Cakes and muffins
  • Couscous
  • Crackers
  • Beer
  • Hydrolyzed vegetable protein
  • Soy sauce
  • Condiments, such as ketchup or salad dressing
  • Meat, crab or shrimp substitutes
  • Coffee substitutes
  • Meat products, such as hotdogs
  • Dairy products, such as ice cream
  • Natural flavorings
  • Gelatinized starch
  • Modified food starch
  • Vegetable gum

Label Reading: Label reading is critical to following a wheat-free diet. The FDA mandates the labeling of foods that contain the eight major food allergens, which includes wheat. Remember to read the label thoroughly each and every time you purchase a product, even if you purchase it regularly, as ingredients change from time to time. If you are unable to determine if the product contains wheat, contact the manufacturer or a Weis Markets registered dietitian for this information. Wheat in Disguise: Read labels carefully and look for these words:

  • Bread crumbs
  • Bulgur
  • Cereal extract
  • Couscous
  • Durum, durum flour, durum wheat
  • Emmer
  • Einkorn
  • Farina
  • Flour (all wheat types, such as all-purpose, cake, enriched, graham, high protein or high gluten, pastry)
  • Kamut
  • Semolina
  • Spelt
  • Sprouted wheat
  • Triticale
  • Vital wheat gluten
  • Wheat (bran, germ, gluten, grass, malt, starch)
  • Whole-wheat berries

Foods you CAN EAT with a wheat allergy:

  • Barley
  • Corn
  • Oat
  • Quinoa
  • Rice
  • Rye
  • Tapioca
  • Buckwheat
  • Millet
  • Potato

Eating Out: Always take extra precaution when dining in restaurants or eating foods prepared by others. Order simple dishes prepared with fresh foods. Avoid foods that may have hidden sources of wheat proteins, such as sauces that often have multiple ingredients or deep-fried foods that may be cooked with other foods containing wheat. When in doubt about any product or dish, don’t eat it. Be sure to ask detailed questions about ingredients and how the food was prepared – your health and safety are at stake!

Don’t Go it Alone

A new diagnosis can be scary. Be sure to build a support of family, friends and healthcare professionals to help you manage your wheat allergy. Talk to a doctor or dietitian when eliminating these foods from your diet. They may recommend an adjustment in your meal plan or a supplement to replace nutrients lost by eliminating the offending food and food ingredients. Also talk to your doctor about how to prepare for a reaction. You may treat a mild reaction with oral antihistamines to reduce signs and symptoms and relieve discomfort. If you are at risk for severe reactions or anaphylaxis, your doctor may advise you to wear a medical alert bracelet and/or prescribe an injectable epinephren (EpiPen) to carry with you at all times.

Soy-Free Diet

01/21/2018 | 6:10am to 6:10am

soy-freeSoy protein, derived from soybeans, is a common food allergy in children that is usually outgrown by the age of three. Recently, however, children are not outgrowing the allergy so it is now seen more frequently in adults. The initial reaction typically occurs in infants after switching to a soy-based formula due to an allergic reaction to a milk-based formula. Some people who are allergic to soy may also be allergic to legumes such as peas, peanuts, lentils and garbanzo beans (chick peas).

Symptoms

Soy allergies are generally accompanied by mild symptoms, although some can be more severe and result in anaphylaxis. Most people just experience general discomfort. Symptoms occur within minutes to a few hours of consuming the food. They include:

  • Hives and/or itching
  • Tingling or swelling of the lips, tongue, throat
  • Wheezing and difficulty breathing
  • Nausea, vomiting, diarrhea
  • Fainting or dizziness

On rare occasions, allergic reactions may result in anaphylaxis, which requires immediate attention and symptoms include:

  • Constriction of airways
  • Shock and a severe drop in blood pressure
  • Rapid pulse
  • Dizziness or loss of consciousness

Diagnosis

If you experience any of these symptoms, even if mild, following consumption of soy or soy-containing products, contact your doctor about allergy testing. Your doctor may recommend one of two tests:

  • Skin test – A skin prick is used to expose small amounts of the protein to your body. A food allergy is confirmed by the presence of a raised bump or hive at the prick location.
  • Blood test – A blood test, also referred to as an IgE test, measures your immune system’s response to the proteins found in soy by counting the number of specific antibodies in your blood.

Survival Skills

The only way to prevent a reaction is by avoiding soy and soy-containing products. Read labels carefully and look for these words:

  • Soy
  • Soya
  • Soybeans
  • Glycine max

Some processed soy products, like soy sauce, may or may not cause a reaction. For example, fermented soy products such as tempeh and miso cause a lesser allergic reaction than raw soy since the fermentation process partially breaks down the proteins. It is important to note that peanuts and soy contain similar allergy-causing components, so you may want to consider being tested for both allergies. Since soy protein is a common allergy in infants, breast milk is a safe alternative to soy-based formulas. Be sure that any solid foods introduced are also soy-free. Food Handling: Depending on the severity of the soy allergy, some people may have an allergic reaction simply from being in contact with soy. Avoid touching soy or products that contain soy. Take precautions to avoid cross-contamination by using separate cooking utensils (cutting boards, serving spoons, pots and pans, etc.) for soy-containing products and by washing their hands in between handling of these foods. Shopping: Soy products are increasingly more common on supermarket shelves due to the perceived health benefits. The FDA mandates the labeling of foods that contain the eight major food allergens, which includes soy. Take a closer look at soy-based foods:

  • Tofu
  • Miso
  • Natto
  • Tempeh
  • Soy sauce
  • Soy flour
  • Soy nuts
  • Soy milk
  • Soy sprouts
  • Edamame

Soy in Disguise: Read labels carefully and look for these words:

  • Hydrolyzed vegetable protein (HVP)
  • Textured vegetable protein (TVP)
  • Lecithin
  • Monodiglyceride
  • Monosodium glutamate (MSG) – common in Chinese food
  • Vegetable oil
  • Vitamin E
  • Natural flavoring
  • Vegetable broth
  • Vegetable gum
  • Vegetable starch

Eating Out: When dining out, ask detailed questions about ingredients and how the food was prepared – your health and safety are at stake! There’s a high risk for cross-contamination in the kitchen so be sure to clearly express your food allergy to the server or cook. Ask to look at the food package if necessary. Be especially careful is restaurants that serve Asian cuisine, since soy ingredients are common.

Don’t Go it Alone

A new diagnosis can be scary. Be sure to build a support of family, friends and healthcare professionals to help you manage your soy protein allergy. Soy foods are rich sources of protein, fiber, calcium, B-vitamins and iron. Soy products have recently become more popular, yet there are many people who never consume soy products. For this reason, avoidance of soy products has less of an impact on your nutritional status than other food allergies. Consider talking to a doctor or dietitian when eliminating any foods from your diet. They may recommend an adjustment in your meal plan or a supplement to replace nutrients lost by eliminating the offending food and food ingredients. Also talk to your doctor about how to prepare for a reaction. You may treat a mild reaction with oral antihistamines to reduce signs and symptoms and relieve discomfort. If you are at risk for severe reactions or anaphylaxis, your doctor may advise you to wear a medical alert bracelet and/or prescribe an injectable epinephren (EpiPen) to carry with you at all times.

Peanut & Tree Nut-Free Diet

01/21/2018 | 6:10am to 6:10am

peanut-freePeanut and tree nut allergies are two of the most common food allergies in both children and adults. Unlike tree nuts, peanuts are considered a legume. For this reason, a peanut allergy does not automatically constitute a tree nut allergy. However, most experts do recommend that a person with an allergy to a particular nut avoid all other types of tree nuts. Discuss with your doctor or allergist which nuts are necessary to avoid. Peanut and tree nut allergies typically appear early in life and are generally not outgrown. The number of children with food allergies, specifically to peanuts and tree nuts, is steadily increasing. Exposure can occur through direct contact, cross contact and even inhalation. The severity of a reaction depends on the amount eaten and how sensitive an individual is.

Symptoms

Peanut allergies are the leading cause of anaphylaxis, the most severe allergic reaction. Anaphylaxis requires immediate attention and symptoms include:

  • Constriction of airways
  • Shock and a severe drop in blood pressure
  • Rapid pulse
  • Dizziness or loss of consciousness

Peanut and tree nut allergies can also trigger other reactions. Symptoms occur within minutes to a few hours of consuming the food. They include:

  • Hives and/or itching
  • Tingling or swelling of the lips, tongue, throat
  • Wheezing and difficulty breathing
  • Nausea, vomiting, diarrhea
  • Fainting or dizziness

Diagnosis

If you experience any of these symptoms following consumption of peanuts or tree nuts, contact your doctor about allergy testing. Your doctor may recommend one of two tests:

  • Skin test – A skin prick is used to expose small amounts of the protein to your body. A food allergy is confirmed by the presence of a raised bump or hive at the prick location.
  • Blood test – A blood test, also referred to as an IgE test, measures your immune system’s response to the proteins found in various nuts by counting the number of specific antibodies in your blood.

Survival Skills

It is important to note that you may be allergic to either peanuts or tree nuts, or both. If either allergy is confirmed, you may need to eliminate all foods containing either nut from your diet to prevent a reaction since peanuts and tree nuts are commonly manufactured on the same machinery or in the same plant and cross-contamination is a possibility. Again, discuss with your doctor or allergist which types of nuts you should avoid. Tree nuts include:

  • Almonds
  • Brazil nuts
  • Cashews
  • Chestnuts
  • Hazelnuts
  • Macadamia nuts
  • Pecans
  • Pine nuts
  • Pistachios
  • Walnuts

Food Handling: Oral consumption of peanuts and/or tree nuts is not the only way to trigger a reaction. You may also be affected simply by touching them or by exposure to the proteins that becomes airborne during the cooking process. Keep these products out of the home, and talk to friends and family in advance when attending group functions where it might be cooked or served. Even if you don’t eat the offending food, they must take precautions to avoid cross-contamination by using separate cooking utensils (cutting boards, serving spoons, pots and pans, etc.) for peanut and tree nut-containing products and by washing their hands in between handling of these foods. Shopping: Nut proteins can be particularly well-disguised in food products, so one must be a careful shopper. The Food Allergen Labeling and Consumer Protection Act (FALCPA) requires that packaged food products list peanuts or the specific tree nut on the label. They must also specify whether the product was produced in a facility that processes other foods containing peanuts and/or tree nuts. Take a closer look at common peanut- tree nut-containing foods:

  • Cereals, crackers, cookies, candy, chocolates and energy bars
  • Flavored coffee
  • Ice cream and frozen desserts
  • Marinades, salad dressings and barbeque sauces
  • Nougat
  • Pesto
  • Pancakes
  • Meat-free burgers or other vegetarian products
  • Nut butters (try alternatives like soy nut butter and sunflower seed butter)
  • Asian and Mexican dishes
  • Grain breads
  • Marzipan

Eating Out: Eating out can provide an additional challenge. Always be sure to ask detailed questions about ingredients and how the food was prepared – your health and safety are at stake! It may be wise to avoid ice cream parlors, Mexican or Asian restaurants altogether if you are very sensitive to peanuts or tree nuts because of the high risk for cross-contamination in the kitchen.

Don’t Go it Alone

A new diagnosis can be scary. Be sure to build a support of family, friends and healthcare professionals to help you manage your peanut and/or tree nut food allergy. Peanuts and tree nuts are a good source of heart-healthy monounsaturated fats as well as protein. Talk to a doctor or dietitian when eliminating these foods from your diet. They may recommend an adjustment in your meal plan or a supplement to replace nutrients lost by eliminating the offending food and food ingredients. Also talk to your doctor about how to prepare for a reaction. You may treat a mild reaction with oral antihistamines to reduce signs and symptoms and relieve discomfort. If you are at risk for severe reactions or anaphylaxis, your doctor may advise you to wear a medical alert bracelet and/or prescribe an injectable epinephren (EpiPen) to carry with you at all times.

Milk-Free Diet

01/21/2018 | 6:10am to 6:10am

milk-freeApproximately 2.5 percent of children under age three are allergic to milk, making it one of the most common allergies in children. It is most common in infants who are fed formula from cow’s milk than in those who are breastfed or give hypoallergenic hydrolyzed formula. Although the allergy is usually related to cow’s milk, milk from sheep, goats, and other animals are not safe alternatives since the milk proteins are very similar. Most children who are allergic to milk developed the allergy during the first year of life. Thankfully, most will outgrow the allergy by age three.

Symptoms

Symptoms often occur within minutes of consuming the food and may include:

  • Hives
  • Vomiting
  • Wheezing

Other symptoms take several hours to develop and may include:

  • Runny nose and watery eyes
  • Cramping, loose stools or diarrhea
  • Skin rash, often around the mouth
  • Colic (in babies)

On rare occasions, allergic reactions may result in anaphylaxis, which requires immediate attention and symptoms include:

  • Constriction of airways
  • Shock and a severe drop in blood pressure
  • Rapid pulse
  • Dizziness or loss of consciousness

Diagnosis

If you or your child experiences any of these symptoms near the time you have eaten milk or products that contain milk proteins, contact your doctor about allergy testing. Your doctor may recommend the following tests:

  • Skin test – A skin prick test is used to expose small amounts of the protein to your body. A food allergy is confirmed by the presence of a raised bump or hive at the prick location.
  • Blood test – A blood test, also referred to as an IgE test, measures your immune system’s response to the proteins found in milk by counting the number of specific antibodies in your blood.
  • Elimination diet – The offending food is eliminated from the diet and then added back in to see if it causes an allergic reaction.

*It’s important to differentiate between a milk allergy and milk or lactose intolerance since the cause, symptoms and treatment are different. Milk or lactose intolerance occurs in people who are missing the enzyme lactase, which breaks down lactase, a sugar found in milk. Without this enzyme, these individuals are unable to digest milk and dairy products and thus experience digestive problems, like gas or diarrhea. A milk allergy involves an immune system reaction triggered by two types of proteins present in milk, casein and whey. A person may be allergic to only one or both casein and whey.

Survival Skills

The only way to prevent a reaction is to avoid milk and foods that contain milk proteins, which can be difficult since milk is present in so many processed foods. Therefore, it important to read labels carefully. In general, avoid:

  • Milk
  • Butter
  • Cheese
  • Cream
  • Custard
  • Curds
  • Yogurt
  • Ice cream
  • Puddings
  • Chocolate, nougat and caramel candies

See shopping tips below for “code words” to look for on an ingredients listing. Food Handling: An allergic reaction typically only occurs from ingesting milk; a reaction from contact with milk is unlikely. However, precautions must be taken when preparing food to avoid cross-contamination such as using separate cooking utensils (cutting boards, serving spoons, pots and pans, etc.) for milk-containing products and by washing their hands in between handling of these foods. Shopping: Since many foods contain milk, you must read labels carefully while shopping. The FDA mandates the labeling of foods that contain the eight major food allergens, which includes milk. Before purchasing a product, look to see if a product is labeled as milk-free. However, products that are labeled as milk-free or dairy-free may still contain small amounts of milk proteins. When in doubt, contact the manufacturer or ask a Weis Markets dietitian to be sure a product does not contain eggs. Milk in Disguise:

  • Whey, whey protein, or milk protein
  • Casein or caseinates (sometimes used in meats as a binder)
  • Rennet or rennet casein
  • Words starting with “lact” such as lactose or lactate
  • Hydrosolate
  • Ghee
  • Protein powders
  • Artificial butter or cheese flavors
  • Fat-replacement products
  • Recaldent™ (Used in tooth-whitening gums)
  • Lactic acid starter (may contain milk; lactic acid does not)

*When purchasing deli meats, make sure that slicer has not also been used to cut cheese. Some ingredients sound like they contain milk proteins but they actually do not. These include:

  • Cocoa butter
  • Coconut milk
  • Cream of tartar
  • Calcium lactate
  • Calcium stearoyl lactylate
  • Sodium stearoyl lactylate
  • Oleoresein
  • Lactic acid

Eating Out: When dining out, ask detailed questions about ingredients and how the food was prepared – your health and safety are at stake! There’s a high risk for cross-contamination in the kitchen so be sure to clearly express your food allergy to the server or cook. Ask if your food was prepared with butter, dipped or mixed with milk, etc. Request to look at the food package or recipe if necessary.

Don’t Go it Alone

A new diagnosis can be scary. Be sure to build a support system of family, friends and healthcare professionals to help you manage your milk allergy. Talk to a doctor or registered dietitian when eliminating foods from your diet about possible nutrient deficiencies like protein, calcium, vitamin D and vitamin B12. They may recommend an adjustment in your meal plan or a supplement to replace nutrients lost by eliminating the offending food and food ingredients. Also talk to your doctor about how to prepare for a reaction. You may treat a mild reaction with oral antihistamines to reduce signs and symptoms and relieve discomfort. If you are at risk for severe reactions or anaphylaxis, your doctor may advise you to wear a medical alert bracelet and/or prescribe an injectable epinephrine (EpiPen) to carry with you at all times.

Gluten-Free Diet

01/21/2018 | 6:10am to 6:10am

gluten-freeCeliac Disease and the Gluten-Free Diet

Celiac disease is a lifelong autoimmune digestive disease that affects 1 in 133 adults and children. When individuals with celiac disease eat gluten-containing foods, their immune system responds by damaging the small intestine and preventing nutrients from being properly absorbed. Gluten is a protein found in wheat, rye, barley and oats. Celiac disease is not a food allergy. At this time the cause of celiac disease is unknown, though a strong genetic link has been identified. It is strongly suggested that family members of someone with celiac disease be tested, even if they display no symptoms. The onset of celiac disease may be also triggered by surgery, viral infection, severe emotional stress, pregnancy or childbirth. There is also an increased incidence of celiac disease seen in individuals with a history of autoimmune illness such as:

  • Type 1 diabetes
  • Autoimmune thyroid or liver disease
  • Addison’s disease
  • Sjogren’s syndrome
  • Rheumatoid arthritis

Symptoms

The symptoms of celiac disease are extremely varied and are often confused with other intestinal disorders. In some cases, individuals experience no symptoms at all. Damage can occur to the small intestine even when symptoms are not present. Digestive symptoms are more common in infants and young children and may include:

  • Abdominal bloating and pain
  • Chronic diarrhea
  • Vomiting
  • Constipation
  • Pale, foul-smelling, or fatty stool
  • Weight loss

Other symptoms seen in children may include:

  • Irritability
  • Behavior change
  • Concentration/learning difficulties
  • Failure to thrive
  • Delayed growth or short stature

Adults with celiac disease are less likely to have digestive symptoms and may instead experience one or more of the following:

  • Unexplained iron-deficiency anemia
  • Fatigue
  • Bone or joint pain
  • Arthritis
  • Bone loss or osteoporosis
  • Depression or anxiety
  • Tingling numbness in the hands and feet
  • Seizures
  • Missed menstrual periods
  • Infertility or recurrent miscarriage
  • Canker sores
  • An itchy skin rash called dermatitis herpetiformis
  • Lactose intolerance

 

Diagnosis

In celiac disease, the immune system recognizes gluten as a foreign substance and produces elevated levels of antibodies to get rid of it.

  • Blood test – A blood test, also referred to as an IgE test, measures your immune system’s response to gluten by counting the number of specific antibodies in your blood.
  • Biopsy – If certain antibody levels are high, a biopsy, or tissue sample, is taken from the small intestine to determine the extent of or absence of tissue damage in order to confirm a diagnosis.

If you suspect that you or a loved one may have celiac disease or gluten sensitivity it is necessary to undergo testing before starting a gluten free diet regimen for the test results to be accurate. Testing may produce a "false negative" result if a gluten-free diet is followed before testing occurs.  

Survival Skills

The only treatment available for celiac disease is to follow a strict gluten-free diet for life. While this lifestyle change may seem overwhelming, the good news is that many foods are naturally gluten-free and safe to eat. Foods to Eat on a Gluten-Free Diet:

  • Fresh fruits & vegetables
  • Plain, unseasoned meat, poultry, fish, eggs, nuts, peas, tofu, and beans
  • Plain milk and yogurt, cream cheese, cottage cheese, and cheese
  • Naturally gluten-free grains like amaranth, buckwheat, rice, corn, flax potato, tapioca, bean, sorghum, soy, arrowroot, quinoa, teff, nut flours, or wild rice
  • Butter, margarine, and vegetable oils
  • Plain pickles, relish, olives, ketchup, mustard, pure herbs and spices, apple, cider or distilled white vinegar

*These foods are generally considered safe to eat, however it is extremely important to thoroughly evaluate the ingredients listing prior to consumption. You should also consider if the food is produced in a facility where gluten-containing ingredients are handled. Foods to AVOID on a Gluten-Free Diet:

  • Wheat (durum, semolina, bran, germ)
  • Rye
  • Barley
  • Bulgur
  • Graham flour
  • Spelt
  • Triticale
  • Kamut
  • Farina
  • Oats*

*Many people with celiac disease can tolerate small amounts of pure oats in their diet. However, gluten can get into oats used in commercial food during growing, harvesting and processing. Look for the “gluten-free” claim on foods that contain oats. Questionable Sources of Gluten AVOID the following ingredients unless you can verify they are gluten-free:

  • Brown rice syrup (frequently made with barley)
  • Dextrin or maltodextrin (usually made from corn, but may be derived from wheat)
  • Flour or cereal products
  • Hydrolyzed vegetable protein (HVP), hydrolyzed plant protein (HPP) or textured vegetable protein (TVP)
  • Malt or malt flavoring (usually made from barley; okay if made from corn)
  • Modified food starch
  • Natural and artificial flavors
  • Soy sauce (most soy sauces contain wheat)
  • Blue cheese (may be cultured on rye or dusted with flour)

*These ingredients may be found in processed meats, sauces, bouillon, selected condiments, salad dressing, baking powder, sour cream, ice cream, processed cheeses, etc.   Food Handling: Cross-contamination may occur when a gluten-free product comes into contact with a food or surface that is not gluten-free. To prevent cross contamination at home:

  • Store all gluten-free products in separate labeled containers and away from gluten-containing foods in the refrigerator and pantry.
  • Buy squeeze bottles of condiments like ketchup, mustard and relish.
  • Use labeled utensils and cutting boards that are for preparation of gluten-free foods only.
  • Use a separate toaster or a toaster oven where the rack can be removed and thoroughly washed between uses.
  • Make sure kitchen surfaces, cooking equipment and utensils are washed thoroughly between uses.

To prevent cross contamination outside the home:

  • Avoid purchasing foods from bulk bins
  • Be aware that fried foods may have been cooked in the same oil as battered with gluten-containing ingredients have been fried.
  • Request that the grill be cleaned preparation of your meal when dining out and keep the meal away from meals that may contain gluten.
  • At a buffet or salad bar, request a clean spoon prior to use.
  • When purchasing deli meats, request that the slicer be thoroughly cleaned and sanitized before fulfilling your order. You may also consider shopping early so your deli order is the first of the day.

Shopping: It is extremely important to carefully read labels while shopping. If a package bears the "gluten-free," claim, the manufacturer has tested the product to ensure the ingredients meet the FDA’s criteria in order to voluntarily make this statement. Keep in mind that food products may have traces of gluten if it is produced in a facility that also produces gluten-containing foods. If a food does not have a "gluten-free" claim on the package, check directly with product manufacturers for more information. Ingredients and manufacturing and plant conditions can change frequently so make label reading a habit.

gluten-chart

Eating Out: When dining out, ask detailed questions about ingredients and how the food was prepared – your health and safety are at stake! Fortunately many restaurants are now offering gluten free selections that are either marked as such on the menu or on the restaurant’s website. You may also consider calling ahead in order to evaluate menu options or alert the chef of your dietary needs.  

Don’t Go it Alone

A new diagnosis can be scary. Be sure to build a support system of family, friends and healthcare professionals to help you manage your diagnosis of celiac disease. Talk to a doctor or registered dietitian when eliminating foods from your diet about possible vitamin and mineral deficiencies. They may recommend an adjustment in your meal plan or a supplement to replace nutrients lost by eliminating the offending food and food ingredients. Vitamin and Mineral Supplementation Gluten-free diets may be lacking essential nutrients like folate, thiamin, niacin, riboflavin, iron, calcium and fiber. When coupled with poor nutrient absorption, supplementing your diet with a daily multivitamin is generally necessary to prevent malnutrition. Discuss all supplements with your doctor or registered dietitian to determine which one is right for you. Remember to read the label thoroughly before purchasing dietary supplements as some may use fillers that have been made from wheat or rye. Medications Talk to your doctor about all medications prior to use as some may use fillers that have been made from wheat or rye.

Fish & Shellfish-Free Diet

01/21/2018 | 6:10am to 6:10am

shellfish-allergiesAn estimated 7 million people report allergies to seafood, including fish and shellfish. Salmon, tuna, halibut, shrimp, crab and lobster are the most common kinds of fish and shellfish to which people are allergic. A fish allergy is considered lifelong; once a person develops the allergy, it is very unlikely that they will lose it.

Symptoms

Symptoms often occur within minutes to a few hours of consuming the food and may include:

  • Hives and/or itching
  • Tingling or swelling of the lips, tongue, throat
  • Wheezing and difficulty breathing
  • Nausea, vomiting, diarrhea
  • Fainting or dizziness
  • Anaphylaxis

Diagnosis

If you experience any of these symptoms near the time you have eaten fish or shellfish, contact your doctor about allergy testing as adverse reactions related to seafood can sometimes be attributed to foodborne illness. Your doctor may recommend one of two tests:

  • Skin test – A skin prick test is used to expose small amounts of the protein to your body. A food allergy is confirmed by the presence of a raised bump or hive at the prick location.
  • Blood test – A blood test, also referred to as an IgE test, measures your immune system’s response to the proteins found in seafood by counting the number of specific antibodies in your blood.

Survival Skills

It’s generally recommended that individuals who are allergic to one species of fish avoid all fish. If you have a fish allergy but would like to have fish in your diet, speak with your allergist about the possibility of being tested with various types of fish. If a seafood allergy is confirmed, you must eliminate that food and food containing fish products from your diet to prevent a reaction. This may include:

  • Fin fish – Salmon, tilapia, catfish, hake, orange roughy, tuna, etc.
  • Shellfish – Clams, crab, lobster, mussels, oysters, scallops, shrimp, etc.

Food Handling: Eating fish and/or shellfish is not the only way to trigger a reaction. You may also be affected by handling seafood or by exposure to fish protein that becomes airborne during the cooking process. Keep these products out of your home, and talk to friends and family in advance when attending group functions where seafood might be cooked or served. Even if you don’t eat the offending food, they must take precautions to avoid cross-contamination by using separate cooking utensils (cutting boards, serving spoons, pots and pans, etc.) for seafood-containing products and by washing their hands in between handling of these foods. Shopping: When you are shopping, it is easy to avoid foods that are plain fish or shellfish. However, you must carefully read labels of other products to make sure they are safe. The FDA mandates the labeling of foods that contain the 8 major food allergens, including fish and shellfish. Before purchasing a product, look for “contains shellfish” or “contains fish.” Take a closer look at common fish-containing foods:

  • Worcestershire sauce
  • Caesar salad dressing
  • Caviar
  • Roe (fish eggs)
  • Seafood flavoring
  • Fish stock
  • Imitation seafood
  • Gelatin

Eating Out: When dining out, ask detailed questions about ingredients and how the food was prepared – your health and safety are at stake! It may be wise to avoid seafood or Asian restaurants altogether if you have a fish or shellfish allergy because of the high risk for cross-contamination in the kitchen. If you choose fried foods, ask whether restaurants use the same oil to fry shrimp and other fish items as they do for chicken and French fries. Watch out for these words on a menu they may clue you in to a food item that contains fish or shellfish:

  • Bouillabaisse
  • Surimi
  • Cioppini
  • Gumbo or jambalaya
  • Ceviche or paella
  • Scampi
  • Sushi or sashimi
  • Caponata
  • Foods served “a l’Americaine”

Don’t Go it Alone

A new diagnosis can be scary. Be sure to build a support system of family, friends and healthcare professionals to help you manage your fish and/or shellfish food allergy. Talk to a doctor or registered dietitian when eliminating foods from your diet about possible vitamin and mineral deficiencies. They may recommend an adjustment in your meal plan or a supplement to replace nutrients lost by eliminating the offending food and food ingredients. Also talk to your doctor about how to prepare for a reaction. You may treat a mild reaction with oral antihistamines to reduce signs and symptoms and relieve discomfort. If you are at risk for severe reactions or anaphylaxis, your doctor may advise you to wear a medical alert bracelet and/or prescribe an injectable epinephrine (EpiPen) to carry with you at all times.

Egg-Free Diet

01/21/2018 | 6:10am to 6:10am

egg-freeEgg allergy is one of the most common allergies in children, second only to cow’s milk. The good news is that most children outgrow the allergy by age five.

Symptoms

Most egg-related allergic reactions involve the skin, although anaphylaxis can also occur. Symptoms often occur within minutes to a few hours of consuming the food and may include:

  • Rashes, hives and/or itching
  • Cramps, nausea and vomiting
  • Inflamed nasal passages
  • Allergic asthma

On rare occasions, allergic reactions may result in anaphylaxis, which requires immediate attention and symptoms include:

  • Constriction of airways
  • Shock and a severe drop in blood pressure
  • Rapid pulse
  • Dizziness or loss of consciousness

Diagnosis

If you experience any of these symptoms near the time you have eaten eggs or egg-containing products, contact your doctor about allergy testing. Your doctor may recommend the following tests:

  • Skin test – A skin prick test is used to expose small amounts of the protein to your body. A food allergy is confirmed by the presence of a raised bump or hive at the prick location.
  • Blood test – A blood test, also referred to as an IgE test, measures your immune system’s response to the proteins found in eggs by counting the number of specific antibodies in your blood.
  • Food challenge –Following ingestion of gradually increased amounts of the suspected food allergen, you undergo careful supervision for a few hours or days to determine if any allergy symptoms occur. This test may also be performed to confirm that a child has outgrown his/her egg allergy.

Survival Skills

The only way to prevent a reaction is to avoid eggs and egg-containing foods. This goes beyond avoiding omelets and scrambled eggs since eggs are widespread in many products. Although most people are allergic to egg whites, both the white and the yolk must be avoided since it is impossible to completely separate them. Keep reading to find out hidden sources of eggs. It’s generally recommended that individuals who are allergic to hen’s eggs also avoid eggs from other birds. Some people may also be allergic to chicken. Food Handling & Preparation: Depending on the severity of the egg allergy, some people may have an allergic reaction simply from being in contact with eggs. Avoid touching eggs or products that contain eggs. Take precautions to avoid cross-contamination by using separate cooking utensils (cutting boards, serving spoons, pots and pans, etc.) for egg-containing products and by washing their hands in between handling of these foods. Eggs are an important part of cooking and baking for leavening and binding but don’t worry—there are substitutes! For each egg called for in the recipe, substitute one of the following:

  • 1 teaspoon baking powder + 1 tablespoon water + 1 tablespoon vinegar
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder + 1½ tablespoons water + 1½ tablespoons oil
  • 1 teaspoon yeast dissolved in ¼ cup warm water
  • 1 packet gelatin + 2 tablespoons warm water; mix just prior to use
  • 2 tablespoons fruit puree (Use only for binding, not leavening)

Shopping: Since many foods, and even non-food products, contain eggs, you must read labels carefully while shopping. The FDA mandates the labeling of foods that contain the eight major food allergens, which includes eggs. Before purchasing a product, look to see if a product is labeled as egg-free. However, products that are labeled as egg-free may still contain small amounts of egg proteins. When in doubt, contact the manufacturer or ask a Weis Markets dietitian to be sure a product does not contain eggs. Take a closer look at common egg-containing foods:

  • Pasta
  • Marshmallow
  • Mayonnaise
  • Meringue, custard, and marzipan
  • Eggnog
  • Egg or fat substitutes
  • Baked goods
  • Frosting
  • Pudding
  • Mixes and batters
  • Soup stocks
  • Sauces and dressings
  • Breaded foods
  • Processed meat products
  • Root beer, specialty coffee and alcoholic drinks

For some people, even touching nonfood products that contain eggs may trigger an allergic reaction. Nonfood products that may contain egg proteins include:

  • Shampoo
  • Cosmetics
  • Finger paints
  • Medications
  • Flu vaccines

Eggs in Disguise: Read labels carefully and look for these words:

  • Words starting with “ova” or “ovo”
  • Albumin
  • Globulin
  • Lecithin
  • Livetin
  • Lysozyme
  • Simplesse
  • Vitellin

Eating Out: When dining out, ask detailed questions about ingredients and how the food was prepared – your health and safety are at stake! There’s a high risk for cross-contamination in the kitchen so be sure to clearly express your food allergy to the server or cook. Ask to look at the food package if necessary. On the menu, look out for common egg-containing foods (listed above).

Don’t Go it Alone

A new diagnosis can be scary. Be sure to build a support system of family, friends and healthcare professionals to help you manage your egg allergy. Talk to a doctor or registered dietitian when eliminating foods from your diet about possible vitamin and mineral deficiencies.

The members of the Audit Committee are not full-time employees  of the Company and may or may not be accountants or auditors by profession or experts in the fields of accounting or auditing and, in any event, do not serve the Company in such capacity. Consequently, it is not the duty of the Audit Committee to conduct audits or to determine that the Company’s financial statements and disclosures are complete and accurate, are in accordance with generally accepted accounting principles, and in compliance with legal or regulatory obligations.. Management is responsible for the Company’s financial statements, for maintaining effective internal control over financial reporting, and for its assessment of the effectiveness of internal control over financial reporting. The Firm’s responsibility is to review the Company’s unaudited interim financial statements, express an opinion on the Company’s annual financial statements, and express an opinion on the effectiveness of the Company’s internal control over financial reporting based on their audits.

II. Organization The Audit Committee shall consist of at least three directors, each of whom shall satisfy the independence and financial literacy requirements of Section 10A of the Securities Exchange Act and the rules promulgated thereunder, the New York Stock Exchange and any other regulatory requirements, and at least one of whom shall have been determined by the Board to be an “audit committee financial expert” as defined under rules promulgated by the Securities and Exchange Commission. The members of the Audit Committee shall be appointed by the Board which shall also designate one member as chairperson or delegate the authority to designate a chairperson to the Committee. The Audit Committee may form and delegate authority to subcommittees when appropriate.

Code of Business Conduct and Ethics

01/21/2018 | 6:10am to 6:10am

October 30, 2014

WEIS MARKETS, INC. CODE OF BUSINESS CONDUCT AND ETHICS

I. Introduction We require the highest standards of professional and ethical conduct from all of our associates. The success of our business depends on the trust and confidence we earn from our associates, customers, strategic partners and shareholders. Our reputation for honesty and integrity is measured by how we conduct ourselves in meeting our commitments and in striving to achieve our goals. To this end, no associate will be permitted to achieve results through violations of laws or regulations, through unscrupulous dealings or in violation of this policy. Our Company’s business practices are intended to be compatible with the economic and social priorities of each location in which we operate. This Code reflects our commitment to a culture of honesty, integrity and accountability and outlines the basic principles and policies with which all associates are expected to comply. When considering any action, it is important to ask: “Will this action build trust and credibility for Weis Markets? Will it help create an ethical working environment in which Weis Markets can continue to succeed? Is the commitment I am making one I can follow through on?” We will build our trust and credibility only by being able to answer “Yes” to these questions and by ensuring our actions everyday are ethical and consistent with this commitment. Your cooperation is necessary to the continued success of our business and the cultivation and maintenance of our reputation as a good corporate citizen. In addition to following this Code in all aspects of your business activities, associates are expected to seek guidance in any case where there is a question about compliance with both the letter and spirit of our policies and applicable laws. This Code sets forth general principles and does not supersede the specific policies and procedures that are covered in the Company’s compliance manual or in separate specific policy statements, such as the Securities Trading Policy. References in this Code of Ethics to the Company mean Weis Markets, Inc. or any of its subsidiaries. Please read this Code carefully and if you have any questions or if there is any part of it that is unclear, please speak with your immediate supervisor, Human Resources or Weis Markets’ corporate attorney.

II. Conflicts of Interest A conflict of interest occurs when an individual’s private interest interferes, or appears to interfere, in any way with the interests of the Company. A conflict situation can arise when an associate takes an action or has interests that may make it difficult to perform his or her work effectively. Conflicts of interest also arise when an associate, officer or director, or a member of his or her family, receives improper personal benefit as a result of his or her position in the Company. Loans to, or guarantees of obligations to, such persons are likely to pose conflicts of interest, as are transactions of any kind between the Company and any other organization in which you or any member of your family have an interest. Activities that could give rise to conflicts of interest are prohibited unless specifically approved in advance by the Board of Directors. It is not always easy to determine whether a conflict of interest exists, so any potential conflicts of interests must be reported immediately to the Executive Committee of the Board of Directors. A member of the Executive Committee of the Board of Directors with any potential conflict of interests must report immediately to the Audit Committee.

III. Corporate Opportunities Associates, officers, directors, supervisors and all other Weis associates are prohibited from taking for themselves personally opportunities that arise through the use of corporate property, information or position and from using corporate property, information or position for personal gain. As Weis Markets associates, they are also prohibited from competing with the Company.

IV. Confidentiality Associates must maintain the confidentiality of information entrusted to them by the Company or that otherwise comes into their possession in the course of their employment, except when disclosure is authorized or legally mandated. The obligation to preserve confidential information continues even after you leave the Company. Confidential information includes all non-public information that may be of use to competitors, or harmful to the Company or its customers, if disclosed. It also includes information that suppliers and customers have entrusted to us.

V. Protection and Proper Use of Company Assets All associates should endeavor to protect the Company’s assets and ensure their efficient use. Theft, carelessness and waste have a direct impact on the Company’s profitability. Any suspected incidents of fraud or theft should be immediately reported for investigation through the hotline or the other options that are made available to associates. Company assets, such as funds, products or computers, may only be used for legitimate business purposes or other purposes approved by management. Company assets may never be used for illegal purposes. The obligation to protect Company assets includes proprietary information. Proprietary information includes any information that is not generally known to the public or would be helpful to our competitors. Examples of proprietary information are intellectual property, business and marketing plans, loyalty marketing database information and associate employment and medical records. The obligation to preserve proprietary information continues even after you leave the Company.

VI. Insider Trading Insider trading is unethical and illegal. It can result in significant damage to our company and its shareholders. Associates are not allowed to trade in securities of a company while in possession of material non-public information regarding that company. It is also illegal to “tip” or pass on inside information to any other person who might make an investment decision based on that information or pass the information on further. The Company’s Securities Trading Policy sets forth associates’ obligations with respect to trading in the Company's securities.

VII. Fair Dealing Each associate should endeavor to deal fairly with the Company’s customers, suppliers, competitors and associates. No associate should take unfair advantage of anyone through illegal conduct, manipulation, concealment, abuse of privileged information, misrepresentation of material facts or any other unfair-dealing practice.

VIII. Compliance with Laws, Rules and Regulations Compliance with both the letter and spirit of all laws, rules and regulations applicable to our business is critical to our reputation and continued success. All associates must respect and obey the laws of the cities and states in which we operate and avoid even the appearance of impropriety. Associates who fail to comply with this Code and applicable laws will be subject to disciplinary measures, up to and including discharge from the Company.

IX. Compliance With the Antitrust Laws The Company believes in fair and open competition, and adheres strictly to the requirements of the antitrust laws. As a general proposition, any contact with a competitor may present problems under the antitrust laws. Accordingly, all associates of the Company should avoid any such contact relating to the business of the Company or the competitor without first obtaining the approval of the legal department. We note below some general rules concerning contacts with competitors:

  • Agreements among competitors, whether written or oral, which relate to prices are illegal per se. In other words, such agreements, by themselves, constitute violations of the antitrust laws. There are no circumstances under which agreements among competitors relating to prices may be found legal. Price fixing is a criminal offense, and may subject the Company to substantial fines and penalties and the offending associate to imprisonment and fines.
  • The antitrust laws may be violated even in the absence of a formal agreement relating to prices. Under certain circumstances, an agreement to fix prices may be inferred from conduct, such as the exchange of price information, and from communications among competitors even without an express understanding. Although exchanges of price information are permitted in certain circumstances, associates of the Company should not participate in such exchanges without first obtaining the approval of the legal department.
  • It is a per se violation of the antitrust laws for competitors to agree, expressly or by implication, to divide markets by territory or customers.
  • It is a per se violation of the antitrust laws for competitors to agree not to do business with a particular customer or supplier. As with agreements to fix prices, the antitrust laws can be violated even in the absence of an express understanding.
  • Any communication between competitors concerning problems with any customer or supplier may violate the antitrust laws and should be avoided.

X. Compliance with Environmental Laws The Company intends to be a good steward of the environment and is sensitive to the environmental, health and safety consequences of its operations. Accordingly, the Company is in strict compliance with all applicable Federal and State environmental laws and regulations, including, among others, the Clean Air Act, the Federal Water Pollution Control Act, the Resource Conservation and Recovery Act and the Occupational Safety and Health Act. If any associate has any doubt as to the applicability or meaning of a particular environmental, health or safety regulation, he or she should discuss the matter with their immediate manager, the corporate attorney, or a member of the Executive Committee of the Board of Directors.

XI. Discrimination and Harassment Our Company values the diversity and inclusion of all of its associates and is committed to providing equal opportunity in every aspect of employment. We base all employment decisions solely on legitimate job-related criteria. It is against our Company’s policies (and the law) to base employment decisions on race, color, religion, national origin, sex (including pregnancy), sexual orientation, age, disability, veteran status, marital status, or any other legally protected characteristic. All associates are expected to behave professionally and to avoid any conduct that may be considered discrimination, harassment or sexual harassment. Abusive, harassing or offensive conduct is unacceptable, whether verbal, physical or visual. This includes derogatory comments based on racial or ethnic characteristics, unwelcome sexual advances, threats of violence or physical intimidation or inappropriate language directed at associates, customers, or visitors. Associates are expected to report any harassment or conduct that makes them feel uncomfortable.

XII. Safety and Health Our Company is committed to keeping its workplaces free from safety hazards. All associates are responsible for maintaining a safe workplace and following all health and safety rules and practices. Associates are expected to report any accidents, injuries, unsafe equipment, practices or conditions immediately to their supervisor or other designated person(s). Weis Markets is a drug-free employer. It is unacceptable for an associate to work when their ability to function safely is diminished or impaired for any reason. Associates must report to work free from the influence of any substance that could prevent them from conducting work activities safely and effectively.

XIII. Accuracy of Company Records and Reporting Honest and accurate recording and reporting of information is critical to our ability to make responsible business decisions. The Company’s accounting records are relied upon to produce reports for the Company’s management, shareholders, creditors, governmental agencies and others. Our financial statements and the books and records on which they are based must accurately reflect all corporate transactions and conform to all legal and accounting requirements and our system of internal controls. The Code of Conduct explicitly prohibits inappropriate management override of established controls. All associates have a responsibility to ensure that the Company’s accounting records do not contain any false or intentionally misleading entries. We do not permit intentional misclassification of transactions as to accounts, departments or accounting periods. All transactions must be supported by accurate documentation in reasonable detail and recorded in the proper account and in the proper accounting period. Business records and communications often become public through legal or regulatory investigations or the media. We should avoid exaggeration, derogatory remarks, legal conclusions or inappropriate characterizations of people and companies. This applies to communications of all kinds, including email and informal notes or interoffice memos, social media including corporate and personal Facebook and Twitter pages. Records should be retained and destroyed in accordance with the Company’s records retention policy.

XIV. Use of E-Mail and Internet Services E-Mail systems and Internet services are provided to help us do work. Incidental and occasional personal use is permitted, but never for personal gain or any improper purpose. You may not access, send or download any information that could be insulting or offensive to another person, such as sexually explicit messages, cartoons, jokes, unwelcome propositions, ethnic or racial slurs, or any other message that could be viewed as harassment. Also prohibited is “flooding” our systems with junk mail and trivia which can hamper the ability of our systems to handle legitimate company business and may increase the Company’s exposure to potential cybersecurity threats. Your messages (including voice mail) and computer information are considered company property and you should not have any expectation of privacy. Unless prohibited by law, the company reserves the right to access and disclose this information as necessary for business purposes. Use good judgment, and do not access, send messages or store any information that you would not want to be seen or heard by other individuals. Violation of these policies may result in disciplinary actions up to and including discharge from the Company.

XV. Political Activities and Contributions We respect and support the right of our associates to participate in political activities. However, these activities should not be conducted on Company time or involve the use of any Company resources such as telephones, computers or supplies. Associates will not be reimbursed for personal political contributions. We may occasionally express our views on local and national issues that affect our operations. In such cases, Company funds and resources may be used, but only when permitted by law and by our strict Company guidelines. The Company may also make limited contributions to political parties or candidates in jurisdictions where it is legal and customary to do so. The Company may pay related administrative and solicitation costs for political action committees formed in accordance with applicable laws and regulations. No associate may make or commit to political contributions on behalf of the company without the express written approval of our Company’s Chief Executive Officer.

XVI. Gifts and Entertainment Business gifts and entertainment are customary courtesies designed to build goodwill among business partners. These courtesies include such things as meals and beverages, tickets to sporting or cultural events, discounts not available to the general public, travel, accommodation and other merchandise or services. In some cultures they play an important role in business relationships. However, a problem may arise when such courtesies compromise – or appear to compromise – our ability to make objective and fair business decisions. The same rules apply to associates offering gifts and entertainment to our business associates. Offering or receiving any gift, gratuity or entertainment that might be perceived to unfairly influence a business relationship should be avoided. These guidelines apply at all times, and do not change during traditional gift-giving seasons. The value of gifts should be nominal, both with respect to frequency and amount. Gifts that are repetitive (no matter how small) may be perceived as an attempt to create an obligation to the giver and are therefore inappropriate. Likewise, business entertainment should be moderately scaled and intended only to facilitate business goals. If, for example, tickets to a sporting or cultural event are offered, then the person offering the tickets should plan to attend the event, as well. Use good judgment. “Everyone else does it” is not sufficient justification. If you are having difficulty determining whether a specific gift or entertainment item lies within the bounds of acceptable business practice, speak with your supervisor. Ask yourself these guiding questions:

  • Is it legal?
  • Is it clearly business related?
  • Is it moderate, reasonable, and in good taste?
  • Would public disclosure embarrass the Company?
  • Is there any pressure to reciprocate or grant special favors?

Strict rules apply when we do business with governmental agencies and officials, whether in the U.S. or in other countries, as discussed in more detail below. Because of the sensitive nature of these relationships, talk with your supervisor and the Executive Committee of the Board of Directors before offering or making any gifts or hospitality to governmental associates.

XVII. Payments to Domestic and Foreign Officials Associates must comply with all laws prohibiting improper payments to domestic and foreign officials, including the U.S. Foreign Corrupt Practices Act of 1977 (the “Act”). The Act prohibits an offer, payment, promise of payment or authorization of the payment of any money or gift to a domestic official (local, state or federal government), an official of a political party or candidate for a political office or to a foreign official, foreign political party, official of a foreign political party or candidate for political office to influence any act or decision of such person or party to obtain or retain business. The Act also prohibits a payment to any person with the intention that all or a portion of that payment will be offered or given, directly or indirectly, to any such political person for any such purpose. Although so-called “grease” payments may not be illegal, the Company’s policy is to avoid such payments. If any associate finds that adherence to the Company’s policy would cause a substantial, adverse effect on operations, that fact should be reported to the Company’s Executive Committee of the Board of Directors which will determine whether an exception may lawfully be authorized. If the facilitating payment is made, such payment must be properly entered and identified on the books of the Company and all appropriate disclosures made. The Act further requires compliance with generally accepted accounting principles. The Company must continue to maintain financial records which, in reasonable detail, accurately and fairly reflect transactions. In particular, all bank accounts that receive or disburse funds on behalf of the Company shall be properly authorized and any such transactions recorded on the official books and records of the Company. Violation of the Act is a criminal offense, subjecting the Company to substantial fines and penalties and any officer, director, associate or stockholder acting on behalf of the Company to imprisonment and fines. The Act prohibits the Company from paying, directly or indirectly, a fine imposed upon an individual pursuant to the Act. Violation of this policy may result in disciplinary actions up to and including discharge from the Company.

XVIII. Reporting of any Illegal or Unethical behavior We have a strong commitment to conduct our business in a lawful and ethical manner. Associates are encouraged to talk to supervisors, managers or other appropriate personnel when in doubt about the best course of action in a particular situation and to report violations of laws, rules, regulations or this Code. We prohibit retaliatory action against any associate who, in good faith, reports a possible violation. It is unacceptable to file a report knowing it to be false.

XIX. Waivers of the Code of Business Conduct and Ethics  Any waiver of this Code for executive officers or directors will be made only by the Board of Directors and will be promptly disclosed as required by law or stock exchange regulation.

XX. Compliance Procedures  This Code cannot, and is not intended to, address all of the situations you may encounter. There will be occasions where you are confronted by circumstances not covered by policy or procedure and where you must make a judgment as to the appropriate course of action. In those circumstances we encourage you to use your common sense, and to contact your supervisor, manager or a member of Human Resources for guidance. If you do not feel comfortable discussing the matter with your supervisor, manager or Human Resources, please call the toll-free TELL WEIS Hotline at 1-844-TELL WEIS (1-844-835-5934). You may report matters confidentially and anonymously via this hotline. We strive to ensure that all questions or concerns are handled fairly, discreetly and thoroughly. You need not identify yourself.

    • Periodically and as and when appropriate, review and approve the following as they affect the executive officers:  (a) all other incentive awards and opportunities, including both cash-based and equity-based awards and opportunities; (b) any employment agreements and severance arrangements; (c) any change-in-control agreements and change-in-control provisions affecting any elements of compensation and benefits; and (d) any special or supplemental compensation and benefits for the executive officers and individuals who formerly served as executive officers, including supplemental retirement benefits and the perquisites provided to them during and after employment.
    • Review and discuss the Compensation Discussion and Analysis (the “CD&A”) required to be included in the Company’s proxy statement and annual report on Form 10-K by the rules and regulations of the Securities and Exchange Commission (the “SEC”) with management, and, based on such review and discussion, determine whether or not to recommend that the CD&A be so included.
    • Produce the annual Compensation Committee Report for inclusion in the Company’s proxy statement in compliance with the rules and regulations promulgated by the SEC.
    • Oversee the Company’s compliance with SEC rules and regulations regarding shareholder approval of certain executive compensation matters, including advisory votes on executive compensation and the frequency of such votes, and the requirement under NYSE rules that, with limited exceptions, shareholders approve equity compensation plans.
    • Receive periodic reports on the Company’s compensation programs as they affect all employees.
    • Review and reassess the adequacy of this Charter and recommend to the Board any changes deemed appropriate by the Compensation Committee.
    • Review its own performance.
    • Report regularly to the Board.
    • Have the sole authority to retain and terminate (or obtain the advice of) any adviser to assist it in the performance of its duties, but only after taking into consideration all factors relevant to the adviser’s independence from management, including those specified in Section 303A.05(c) of the NYSE Listed Company Manual.  The Committee shall be directly responsible for the appointment, compensation and oversight of the work of any adviser retained by the Committee, and shall have sole authority to approve the adviser’s fees and the other terms and conditions of the adviser’s retention.  The Committee will have the resources and authority appropriate to discharge its responsibilities and the Company must provide for appropriate funding, as determined by the Committee, for payment of reasonable compensation to any adviser retained by the Committee.
    • Participate in management’s long-range planning for executive development and succession, including a CEO succession plan.
    • Review managements’ assessment of  the Company’s compensation plans and arrangements in accordance with applicable laws and regulations to assess whether risks arising from the Company’s compensation policies and practices for its employees are reasonably likely to have a material adverse effect on the Company, and review annually with the Company’s Audit Committee the managements’ risk assessment process and conclusion.
    • Form and delegate authority to subcommittees as it deems appropriate.
    • Perform any other activities consistent with this Charter, the Company’s by-laws and governing law, as the Compensation Committee or the Board deems necessary or appropriate.

Code of Ethics for CEO and CFO

01/21/2018 | 6:10am to 6:10am

WEIS MARKETS, INC. CODE OF ETHICS FOR OUR PRINCIPAL EXECUTIVE OFFICER AND SENIOR FINANCIAL OFFICERS

  1. Introduction This Code of Ethics is applicable to the Company's principal executive officer, principal financial officer and controller, or any person performing similar functions (which are referred to in this Code of Ethics as "Financial Managers"). References in this Code of Ethics to the Company mean the Company or any of its subsidiaries.While the Company and its shareholders expect honest and ethical conduct in all aspects of our business from all employees, the Company and its shareholders expect the highest possible standards of honest and ethical conduct from our Financial Managers. You are setting an example for other employees and are expected to foster a culture of transparency, integrity and honesty. Compliance with this Code and the Code of Business Conduct and Ethics is a condition to your employment and any violations will be dealt with severely. In accordance with the rules of the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission (the "SEC"), any change or waiver of this Code will be immediately disclosed pursuant to a filing on Form 8-K (or any successor form), dissemination by the Internet or other electronic means.
  2. Conflicts of Interest A conflict of interest occurs when your personal interests interfere, or appear to interfere, in any way, with the interests of the Company. A conflict of interest can arise either when you have interests that may make it difficult for you to perform your professional obligations fully or when you otherwise take action for your direct or indirect benefit or the direct or indirect benefit of a third party that is inconsistent with the interests of the Company. Conflicts of interest also arise when you, or a member of your family, receive improper personal benefits as a result of your position in the Company. Loans to, or guarantees of obligations of, any employees, officers, directors or any of their family members are likely to pose conflicts of interest, as are transactions of any kind between the Company and any other entity in which you or any member of your family have a material interest.As a Financial Manager, it is imperative that you avoid any investment, interest, association or other relationship that interferes, might interfere, or might be thought to interfere, with your independent exercise of judgment in the Company's best interest and otherwise with your professional obligations to the Company. Any material transaction or relationship that reasonably could be expected to give rise to a conflict of interest must be disclosed as soon as possible to the Chairman of the Board and the Chairman of the Audit Committee.
  3. Accurate Periodic Reports As you are aware, full, fair, accurate, timely and understandable disclosure in the reports and other documents that we file with, or submit to, the SEC and in our other public communications is critical for us to maintain our good reputation, to comply with our obligations under the securities laws and to meet the expectations of our shareholders and other members of the investment community. You are to exercise the highest standard of care in preparing such reports, documents and other public communications, or in ensuring that such reports, documents and other public communications are prepared, in accordance with the guidelines set forth below.
    • Compliance with generally accepted accounting principles [("GAAP") is required at all times. However, technical compliance with GAAP may not be sufficient and, to the extent that technical compliance with GAAP would render financial information that the Company reports misleading, additional disclosure will be required.
    • Compliance with the Company's system of internal accounting controls is required at all times, and no action designed to circumvent such controls and procedures will be tolerated.
    • Compliance with the Company's disclosure controls and procedures is required at all times, and no action designed to circumvent such controls and procedures will be tolerated.
  4. Financial Records Financial Managers are responsible for establishing and managing our financial reporting systems to ensure that:
    • all business transactions are properly authorized.
    • all records fairly and accurately reflect the transactions or occurrences to which they relate.
    • all records fairly and accurately reflect in reasonable detail the Company's assets, liabilities, revenues and expenses.
    • the Company's accounting records do not contain any false or intentionally misleading entries.
    • no transactions are intentionally misclassified as to accounts, departments or accounting periods.
    • all transactions are supported by accurate documentation in reasonable detail and recorded in the proper account and in the proper accounting period.
    • no information is concealed from the internal auditors, the independent auditors, the audit committee or the full board of directors.
  5. Compliance with Laws Financial Managers are expected to comply with both the letter and spirit of all applicable laws and governmental rules and regulations. You will be responsible for establishing and maintaining procedures to:
    • educate members of the finance department about applicable laws and governmental rules and regulations;
    • monitor compliance of the finance department with applicable laws and governmental rules and regulations; and
    • identify any possible violations of applicable laws and governmental rules and regulations and report to the audit committee and correct in a timely and effective manner any violations of applicable laws or governmental rules and regulations.
  6. Ethical Conduct Financial Managers will promote the highest standards of ethical and honest conduct in the finance department. You will be responsible for establishing and maintaining procedures that:
    • encourage and reward professional integrity;
    • eliminate any pressure or incentive to achieve specific financial results by altering any records or other entries, or willfully misapplying accounting policies or GAAP, or by entering into transactions that are designed to circumvent accounting controls or otherwise disguise the true nature of the transaction; and
    • encourage members of the finance department to report deviations from accounting policies and practices
  7. Compliance with this Code If you fail to comply with this Code of Ethics or applicable laws, rules or regulations (including without limitation all rules and regulations of the Securities and Exchange Commission) you will be subject to disciplinary measures, up to and including discharge from the Company. You are expected to report any violations of this Code of Ethics promptly to the Chairman of the Board and the Chairman of the Audit Committee.

Corporate Governance Guidelines

01/21/2018 | 6:10am to 6:10am

WEIS MARKETS, INC. BOARD OF DIRECTORS CORPORATE GOVERNANCE GUIDELINES

  1. Board Issues Membership:
    1. Size of Board. The Board's optimum size is seven (7) members.
    2. Board Membership Criteria. The Board seeks members from diverse professional and personal backgrounds who combine a broad spectrum of experience and expertise with a reputation for integrity. This assessment will include an individual's qualification as independent, as well as consideration of diversity, age, skills and experience in the context of the needs of the Board. No director should serve on more than three other public company boards. Directors should advise the Chairman of the Board in advance of accepting an invitation to serve on another public company board. Exceptional candidates who do not meet all of these criterion may still be considered.
    3. New Directors. Nominees for directorship will be selected by the full Board in accordance with the policies and principles in its charter. The Board will maintain an orientation program for new directors.
    4. Retirement.
      1. Term Limits. The Board does not favor term limits for directors, but believes that it is important to monitor overall Board performance. Therefore, the Board shall review each director's continuation on the Board every year. This will allow each director the opportunity to conveniently confirm his or her desire to continue as a member of the Board.
      2. Resignation Policy - Non-independent Directors. Non-independent directors shall offer to resign from the Board upon their resignation, removal or retirement as an officer of the Company.
      3. Directors Changing Their Present Job Responsibilities. The Board expects directors to offer to resign from the Board upon a change in their business position including, without limitation, retirement from the position on which their original nomination was based. It is not the sense of the Board that in every instance the directors who retire or change from the position they held when they came on the Board should necessarily leave the Board. There should, however, be an opportunity for the Board to review the continued appropriateness of Board membership under the circumstances.
  2. Conduct:
    1. Directors' Duties. The basic responsibility of the directors is to exercise their business judgment to act in what they reasonably believe to be in the best interests of the Company and its shareholders. In discharging that obligation, directors should be entitled to rely on the honesty and integrity of the Company's officers, employees, outside advisors and independent auditors. Directors are expected to attend Board meetings and meetings of committees on which they serve, and to spend the time needed and meet as frequently as necessary to properly discharge their responsibilities. Directors are expected to review meeting materials prior to Board and committee meetings and, when possible, should communicate in advance of meetings any questions or concerns that they wish to discuss so that management will be prepared to address the same.
    2. Board Meetings.
      1. Selection of Agenda Items and Executive Sessions. The Chairman and Chief Executive Officer should establish the agenda for Board meetings. Each Board member is free to suggest the inclusion of items on the agenda. Each Board member is free to raise at any Board meeting subjects that are not on the agenda for that meeting.
      2. Distribution of Materials. The Company shall distribute, sufficiently in advance of meetings to permit meaningful review, written materials, which shall in all events include recent financial information, for use at Board meetings.
      3. Attendance of Non-Directors. The Board believes that attendance of key executive officers augments the meeting process.
      4. Number of Meetings. The Board shall hold a minimum of four (4) meetings per year.
    3. Conflicts of Interest. Directors shall avoid any action, position or interest that conflicts with an interest of the Company, or gives the appearance of a conflict. The Company annually solicits information from directors in order to monitor potential conflicts of interest and directors are expected to be mindful of their fiduciary obligations to the Company.
    4. Share Ownership by Directors. The Board believes that the number of shares of the Company's stock owned by each director is a personal decision, and encourages stock ownership.
    5. Director Compensation. The form and amount of director compensation will be determined by the Company in accordance with the policies and principles set forth in its charter. The Board is aware that questions as to directors' independence may be raised when directors' fees and emoluments exceed what is customary. Similar concerns may be raised when the Company makes substantial charitable contributions to organizations in which a director is affiliated, or enters into consulting contracts with (or provides other indirect forms of compensation to) a director. The Board will critically evaluate each of these matters when determining the form and amount of director compensation.
    6. Continuing Director Education. The Company will maintain orientation programs for new directors and continuing education programs for all directors.
    7. Assessing Board Performance. The Board will conduct an annual self-evaluation to determine whether it and its committees are functioning effectively.
    8. Access to Officers and Employees. Board members have complete and open access to the Company's Chief Executive Officer and Chief Financial Officer. Board members who wish to have access to other members of management should coordinate such access through one of the foregoing.
    9. Interaction with Third Parties. The Board believes that management should speak for the Company and that the Chairman should speak for the Board.
    10. Board Authority. The Board and each committee have the power to hire independent legal, financial or other advisors, as they may deem necessary. Information learned during the course of service on the Board is to be held confidential and used solely in furtherance of the Company's business.
    11. Confidentiality. The Board believes maintaining confidentiality of information and deliberations is an imperative.
  3. Committee Issues
    1. Board Committees. The Board will have at all times an Audit Committee, and a Compensation Committee. The Board may, from time to time, establish or maintain additional committees as necessary or appropriate.
    2. Rotation of Committee Assignments and Chairs. Committee assignments and the designation of committee chairs should be based on the director's knowledge, interests and areas of expertise. The Board does not favor mandatory rotation of committee assignments or chairs. The Board believes experience and continuity are more important than rotation. Committee members and chairs may be rotated in response to changes in membership of the Board and in all cases should be rotated only if rotation is likely to increase committee performance.
    3. Committee Charters. Each committee shall have its own charter. The charters will set forth the purposes, goals and responsibilities of the committees as well as qualifications for committee membership, procedures for committee member appointment and removal, committee structure and operations and committee reporting to the Board. The charters will also provide that each committee will annually evaluate its own performance.
    4. Frequency and Length of Committee Meetings. The chair of each committee, in consultation with the committee members, will determine the frequency and length of the committee meetings consistent with any requirements set forth in the committee's charter.
    5. Chief Executive Officer Evaluation and Management Succession The Compensation Committee will conduct an annual review and approve corporate goals and objectives relevant to Chief Executive Officer compensation and set the Chief Executive Officer's compensation level based on this evaluation.

Vegetarian Diet

01/21/2018 | 6:10am to 6:10am

Are you considering the switch to a vegetarian diet? Here’s your guide to the different types of vegetarian diets, how to choose which one is right for you and ways to meet your nutritional needs.

Vegetarian Diet Breakdown

There are four types of vegetarian diets to choose from.

Vegan: A strict vegetarian diet that eliminates all animal products, including meat, poultry, fish, eggs and dairy foods.

Lactovegetarian: A vegetarian diet that eliminates meat, poultry, fish and eggs but includes dairy products.

Lacto-ovo vegetarian: A vegetarian diet that eliminates meat, poultry and fish but includes eggs and dairy products. This is the most popular type of vegetarian diet.

Flexitarian: This semi-vegetarian diet is based on plant foods with occasional inclusion of meat, poultry and/or fish.

Health Perks of Vegetarian Diets

Well-balanced vegetarian diets are associated with the prevention and management of certain diseases including:

  • Obesity
  • Heart disease
  • High blood pressure
  • Type II diabetes
  • Certain types of cancer

Nutrients to Focus On

Eating a variety of different foods and proper meal planning is necessary to ensure your diet includes an adequate amount of essential nutrients. Vegetarians may find it difficult to meet their needs for the following nutrients.

Nutrient

Function

Best Source

Iron Oxygen transport Beans, enriched cereals, whole grains, soy products, dark green vegetables, dried fruits, baked potatoes with skin   Tip: Eat these food with Vitamin C-containing foods to boost absorption.
Zinc Promotes overall growth/development. Plays a role in skin and immune health Low-fat dairy, beans, soy, whole grains, nuts and nut butters, seeds
Protein Promotes skin, bone, muscle and organ health Low-fat dairy, beans, legumes, lentils, soy, whole grains, nuts and nut butters, seeds
Omega-3s Promote heart and brain health Fortified foods like eggs, cereals, granola bars, dairy products, vegetable oil spreads, nut butters, walnuts, canola oil, flaxseed, soy
Vitamin B12 Production of red blood cells. Brain and nervous system health Eggs, low-fat dairy, fortified foods   Tip: Vegans or strict vegetarians are advised to take a daily supplement
Vitamin D Promotes calcium absorption, reduces inflammation, promotes cell growth Eggs, low-fat dairy, soymilk, cereals,
Calcium Strengthens teeth and bones Low-fat dairy, broccoli, dark green leafy vegetables such as collards and turnips

 

What about supplements?

If you’re concerned that your nutritional intake falls short of your body’s needs, meet with a registered dietitian (RD) who will evaluate your eating habits and make recommendations to get you on track with a well-balanced vegetarian diet.

Transitioning to a vegetarian diet is a major lifestyle change. Ease into your new way of eating gradually and at your own pace to help yourself stay committed. Start with these simple tips:

Make Mondays Meatless
Stick solely to plant-based meals on one day of the week, then ramp up the number of meatless days to make the full transition.

Try Simple Substitutions
Many of your favorite meals can be made meatless with just a few simple substitutions. For example: omit ground meat from chili and add an extra can of black beans or soy crumbles. Instead of chicken Parmesan, give eggplant a try. Or expand your horizons and replace chicken with extra-firm tofu to make stir fry.

Get Creative
Experiment with unfamiliar foods and recipes that fit within your approach to the vegetarian diet. Try a few of our favorite recipes!

Don’t Go it Alone!

Always be sure to consult your primary physician or a registered dietitian before making any serious dietary changes. Choosing to become vegetarian can be a great health choice but if not done right, could cause potential problems. Check out the following sites for more information regarding going vegetarian!
