Keeping our spirits up during these challenges times can be impacted much by the diets and resources at our availability. And that idea bridges all groups from trade businesses to the consumer. Foster Farms is offering its assistance in this arena this summer by delivering 420,000 servings of poultry to California and Washington state food banks to help families impacted economically by COVID-19.

"COVID-19 has changed the very fabric of our lives and has added to the challenge of ensuring that no one in this country goes hungry. The need for protein among our food bank partners is at a near-unprecedented level," said Foster Farms Vice President of Communications Ira Brill. "As a leader in the poultry industry, we have a responsibility to provide all the assistance we can."

This assistance comes at a critical moment in many communities throughout the U.S.

At Foster Farms, giving back is part of a decade-long commitment to fighting hunger and responding to community needs in times of crisis

This move comes on top of recent efforts by Foster Farms which, in April, at the onset of the pandemic, donated 2.4 million servings of poultry to West Coast, Alabama, and Louisiana hunger relief organizations, targeting communities where it operates plants, according to a press release.

Kym Dildine, Co-Chief Executive Officer, Central California Food Bank"So many families are facing economic uncertainty far beyond the financial crisis of 2008, forcing them to turn to us for help for the very first time," said Kym Dildine, Co-CEO of Central California Food Bank in Fresno serving Central Valley communities. "Demand for food has nearly doubled and continues to grow, with no end in sight, while supply of protein is limited. We are so grateful for Foster Farms' continued support during these critical times."

Giving back is a tradition at Foster Farms, with its donations serving as a continuation of a decade-long commitment to fighting hunger and responding to communities in need in time of crisis. Foster Farms encourages others to join in its efforts by donating to their local food bank or community organization.
