RNDC Joins Stoli® “Cocktails for Ukraine” Initiative to Benefit World Central Kitchen Food Relief Efforts


Grand Prairie, TX—July 7, 2022—Republic National Distributing Company (RNDC) announces it is partnering with Stoli® to raise funds in support of the people of Ukraine through donations to WORLD CENTRAL KITCHEN (WCK), a non-profit organization that is on the frontlines providing fresh, nutritious meals to refugees fleeing Ukraine as well as those staying in their cities.

Stoli’s charitable on-premise cocktail program “Cocktails for Ukraine” encourages bars and restaurants to donate a portion of every Stoli® cocktail sold to WCK. Now through August 2022, RNDC has committed to matching donations based on the number of cases sold.

“We are excited to work with Stoli to help maximize their food relief efforts for the people of Ukraine through World Central Kitchen,” said Nick Mehall, RNDC President and CEO. “We hope our combined efforts can bring Stoli closer to reaching their goal of a one-million-dollar donation.”

To date, the WCK has served more than 78 million meals across Ukraine and its neighboring countries. Working with local restaurants, caterers, and food trucks to provide nourishing meals at border crossings, shelters, and other refugee communities, WCK serves more than 1.1 million meals daily in the region.

“We are thrilled RNDC has joined us in our support of the Ukrainian people with Chef José Andrés’ World Central Kitchen,” commented Damian McKinney, Global CEO, Stoli Group. “Having just come back from Ukraine, I can personally attest to the toll that this war has taken on Ukrainians. The funds raised through Stoli’s Limited Edition Ukraine sales go directly to food relief efforts. Now with the help of RNDC, we can further our support and provide hope for the people of Ukraine.”
