Fry Family Foods announces it is partnering with Second Harvest Food Bank of Orange County to provide 5,000 plant-based burgers to people in Southern California who are struggling with hunger and homelessness.
The global plantbased brand is donating the burgers to Second Harvest Food Bank of Orange County, which distributes donated, purchased and prepared foods through a network of more than 300 community and partner programs throughout Orange County. Last year, the nonprofit provided enough food for a record 26.5 million meals and fed more than 250,000 people each month.
“When we saw that 112,000 children in Orange County may go hungry every month and that 22% of seniors are also at risk of going hungry, we knew we had to do something. Through their Kids Café, School Pantry and Senior Grocery programs, Second Harvest Food Bank of Orange County is committed to providing meals to those in need in the Southland and we’re honored to be a part of that effort,” states Fry’s International Marketing Director, Tammy Fry, whose father founded the company nearly three decades ago.
“We are grateful to businesses like Fry’s for their support and involvement in our pledge to feed nearly a quarter of a million people in Orange County every month,” states Katie Shea, Food Sourcing Coordinator for Second Harvest Food Bank of Orange County. “When so many in our community are struggling to put food on their tables, ensuring that every person in Southern California has access to a healthy meal is of paramount importance and companies like Fry’s make it possible for us to provide meals to those in need.”
Fry’s products were recently launched into the US and as we reported this week, Fry’s vegan frozen pizzas just rolled out into Woolworths and Coles in Australia.
