Feeding America and Cargill’s Honeysuckle White and Shady Brook Farms turkey brands are teaming up for the second consecutive year to help provide 1.75 million meals to Americans faced with hunger. Cargill’s $250,000 donation, an increase of 6% from 2009, will help fund the effort.
“We appreciate the continued support of the Honeysuckle White and Shady Brook Farms brands this holiday season. We are feeding more Americans than ever before, and we are in continuous need of food and funds to feed the 37 million people who rely on us for food each year,” said Vicki Escsarra, president and chief executive officer of Feeding America.
Honeysuckle White turkey is a national brand and Shady Brook Farms turkey is a regional brand in the Northeast and Mid-Atlantic regions of the United States. Consumers who purchase these brands of whole turkeys for holiday celebrations help support Feeding America’s goals in the fight against hunger.
