    COLUMBUS, Ohio, April 25 /PRNewswire/ -- Glory Foods' Southern tasting
 vegetables are finally available in Chicago, and fans of the popular pre-
 seasoned, heat-and-serve canned vegetables can now stop family and friends
 from shipping them from other parts of the country.  Glory Foods' delicious
 down-home flavored Greens, Beans and Peas are now available in area
 supermarkets including: select Cub Food Stores, Fairplay, Leamington Foods,
 One Stop, Super Certified, and other select Certified Stores.
     Glory Foods canned vegetables appeal to all who enjoy the taste and flavor
 of Southern cooking without the fuss associated with its preparation.  Glory's
 vegetables are seasoned and accented with spices reminiscent of down-home
 Southern-style cooking and their convenient heat-and-serve preparation makes
 them easy to enjoy any day of the week.  "Preparing traditional favorites such
 as Collard Greens, Blackeyed Peas or Butter Beans has usually been reserved
 for special family occasions or holidays because a good Southern meal takes
 time to prepare," explained Theresa Potter, Director of Marketing, Glory
 Foods, Inc.  "Glory's products are quick and easy to prepare and the end--
 result is always satisfying to families who enjoy the down-home taste of home
 cooked foods," said Potter.
     Glory's presence in Chicago is part of the company's continued plan to
 expand to areas where consumer interest is strong and supportive.  "We have
 received many favorable letters from consumers who have tried our products
 while visiting family and friends in other cities and the most asked question
 was 'when were we going to distribute in Chicago?'  So, it's with a great deal
 of pleasure that we are finally able to introduce them," noted Lisa Cliff,
 National Sales Manager, Glory Foods, Inc.
