1.1M pounds of food donated to Feeding America in 2016

Feb. 23, 2017 — Our company is proud to announce that in 2016 it donated approximately 1.1 million pounds of food, or the equivalent of nearly 910,000 meals for people experiencing food insecurities. Donations were distributed to 40 food banks in 27 states that are part of the Feeding America network.

Items donated included pizza, Edwards® pies, egg rolls frozen fruits and vegetables and other assorted items. All of the products donated are safe to eat, but cannot be sold on the market for reasons such as missed specifications or discontinuations.

In addition to our food donations, our teams across the country have volunteered their time with food banks in the Feeding America network to help support the communities that support us.

Our company entered into an official partnership with Feeding America in 2011 where it was designated as our charity of choice. Doing so not only helped our team to centrally focus charitable works and ensure consistency throughout our organization, but it also provided a way for our employees to positively engage in a common cause to help their communities.
