This season, Cargill partnered with three local food banks to provide Thanksgiving turkeys to families throughout Arkansas. The company donated whole Honeysuckle White® turkeys to River Valley Regional Food Bank, Arkansas Food Bank, and Northwest Arkansas Food Bank—all members of the Feeding America network.

In total, Cargill provided donations to feed more than 120,000 people.

Shane Acosta, General Manager, Cargill“Family gatherings during the holiday season should be accompanied by nutritious, high-quality foods, and we are delighted to help make that a reality for so many neighbors throughout Northwest Arkansas,” said Shane Acosta, General Manager of Cargill’s Springdale turkey complex, in a press release. “Our 1,200 employees who work for the turkey business in the region want to help communities thrive by ensuring people have a delicious Thanksgiving turkey.”

According to the company’s press release, each food bank received approximately 40,000 pounds of Honeysuckle White® turkey.

In total, Cargill provided donations to feed more than 120,000 people through the River Valley Regional Food Bank, Arkansas Food Bank, and Northwest Arkansas Food Bank

Combined, Cargill’s three food bank partners provide nutritional support to residents across Northwest, West Central, Central, and Southern Arkansas.

Cargill also noted that its Springdale facility, established in 1965, has donated more than 1.1 million pounds of turkey products over the past six years, equating to more than 1 million meals throughout the region during the holiday season.

We at Deli Market News offer kudos to Cargill for giving back to its local communities this holiday season.
