Chicken soup for kids – Food banks get 6 truckloads

 | 

Pillsbury Company will donate six truckloads of chicken noodle soup to feed hungry children throughout the U.S. as part of its commitment to America’s Second Harvest, the nation’s largest domestic hunger-relief organization. 

The 184,800 cans of soup will feed almost 400,000 children this spring in Minnesota, Alaska, Montana, North Carolina, New York, and New Jersey.

Meal service programs that focus on child nutrition will distribute the product.  Vegetables and soups always are in demand by food banks.

Pillsbury has donated more than100 million pounds of products to America’s Second Harvest in the last 10 years.

America’s Second Harvest is a network of nearly 200 regional food banks.  It supports 50,000 local charitable agencies, including food pantries, soup kitchens, women’s shelters and Kids Cafes.

Second Harvest provides food assistance to 26 million hungry Americans, including eight million children and four million seniors each year.
