Farmland Foods Announces $20,000 Donation To The Redwood Empire Food Bank As Part Of Expanding Helping Hungry Homes Initiative

Farmland Foods has announced a $20,000 donation to the Redwood Empire Food Bank serving Sonoma County, Calif., as part of an expanding effort by the company to raise awareness of hunger issues around the country. Today's announcement follows more than $80,000 in donations in Phoenix; Las Vegas; Fontana, Calif.; and Kansas City, Mo., earlier this year as part of Farmland's partnership with Richard Petty Motorsports to promote hunger awareness in race communities.

In addition to the $20,000, 43 cases of Hickory Smoked Bacon were donated in honor of the legendary No. 43 Ford made famous by Richard Petty. The bacon donation will help to ensure families, children and seniors in Sonoma County have access to much-needed protein.

"At Farmland, we want to take every measure we can to combat hunger just like our partners at local food banks," said Brendan Smith, Vice President of Marketing. "We are excited to expand our work with Richard Petty Motorsports and partner with the Redwood Empire Food Bank to provide more than 37,000 meals to Sonoma County families in need."

Farmland is raising awareness about hunger issues in a growing number of communities in conjunction with race weekends for the famous No. 43 car, and in partnership with Richard Petty Motorsports.

"Our team is proud to partner with Farmland in fighting hunger," said Aric Almirola, driver of the No. 43 Ford. "Communities across the country are facing a growing hunger challenge, and we are excited to kick off race weekend by partnering with Farmland to make a difference in Sonoma County."

In March and April, as part of this growing effort, Farmland donated $20,000 and 43 cases of Oven Perfect to St. Mary's Food Bank in Phoenix, Ariz., to Three Square Food Bank in Las Vegas, and to Harvesters - The Community Food Network in Kansas City, Mo., and $20,000 and 43 cases of Hickory Smoked Bacon to Second Harvest Food Bank serving Riverside and San Bernardino Counties, Calif. Together with today's donation, Farmland has helped provide more than half a million meals in five communities in 2013.

In fiscal year 2012, Helping Hungry Homes provided 6.9 million food servings through school nutrition programs, food banks, disaster relief and community outreach efforts.

"Farmland Foods understands the importance of answering the question, 'What's for dinner tonight?' Their generous donation of food for the center-of-the-plate means that families in need throughout our community will have a well-balanced and nutritious meal," said David Goodman, executive director of The Redwood Empire Food Bank. "The fact that Farmland Foods takes their generosity on the road means that they are winners both on the track, and in every community in which they race. On behalf of 78,000 people who seek food assistance from the Redwood Empire Food Bank every month, we welcome Farmland Foods to Sonoma Raceway."
