Family-owned California poultry producer Foster Farms today donated $100,000 to the Redwood Empire Food Bank (REFB) to help meet the critical needs of families displaced by the Northern California fires. REFB, based in Santa Rosa, serves communities that are among the most affected by the fires, with thousands of homes destroyed and tens of thousands of residents evacuated.
Foster Farms also pledged to deliver 10,000 pounds of poultry products to REFB once they resume their ability to accept and distribute perishable food donations.
“Foster Farms has served the communities of Northern California for decades, and we are committed to helping our neighbors whose lives have been devastated by the raging wildfires,” said Laura Flanagan, CEO of Foster Farms. “Helping those in need is a year-round priority for Foster Farms, and we hope that our donations will give a ray of hope to those who have lost so much. We encourage other Northern California businesses and individuals to support REFB in its efforts to help those displaced by the fires.” Read more
