Foster Farms Thanksgiving turkey donations to feed 84,000 people this holiday in California, Oregon and Washington

In preparation for the Thanksgiving holiday, and to address the growing issue of food insecurity, Foster Farms has donated more than 81,000 pounds of turkey to six West Coast food banks. The turkeys will be distributed to local communities and families in California, Oregon and Washington to help feed needy families this Thanksgiving. Each food bank received 750 turkeys – or 13,500 pounds of turkey. Collectively, Foster Farms’ Thanksgiving donations will help feed up to 84,000 people this holiday. Foster Farms Director of Communications Ira Brill is hoping the company’s turkey donations will bring greater awareness to the issue of food insecurity on the West Coast. “If Foster Farms’ donations encourage other companies and individuals to follow suit with donations of their own, we can reach even more families,” said Brill. “You can’t put a value on an old-fashioned turkey dinner with family over the holidays. We are honored to play a part in helping families enjoy a traditional Thanksgiving meal this year.” Read More
