Chobani Done Trying To Get Yogurt To Sochi, Will Donate Food Instead

USOC sponsor Chobani's quest to "get its Greek yogurt to the Sochi Olympics is coming to an end" after the company announced that it "plans to donate a shipment of about 5,000 cups of yogurt it had hoped to send to U.S. athletes at the Winter Games to food banks" in N.Y. and New Jersey instead. The shipment "has been held up in a refrigerated warehouse" at Newark Int'l Airport after Russian authorities "said the U.S. Department of Agriculture failed to provide a necessary certificate under its customs rules." The yogurts "will be donated" to Saint John's Soup Kitchen in New Jersey and Food Bank For N.Y. (AP, 2/12).
