In an effort to give back to communities that have been adversely affected by the recent pandemic, John Soules Foods donated 168,000 pounds of product to charitable organizations in areas where the company has operations.
“John Soules Foods has been an outstanding partner with the East Texas Food Bank in the fight against hunger,” said East Texas Food Bank CEO Dennis Cullinane. “We are so grateful for their amazing generosity in providing over 50 tons of quality chicken protein for our clients, just when we needed it the most.”
“The Montgomery County Food Bank is overwhelmed with gratitude for the generous donation from John Soules Foods. This is a true example of how Texans are uniting to fight hunger during this unprecedented time of crisis,” said Allison Hulett, president and CEO of Montgomery County Food Bank.
Additionally, John Soules Foods made a donation totaling 20,000 pounds to charities in the Atlanta, Georgia, area, where the company has operations in nearby Gainesville. In total, more than 890,000 servings can be prepared by these three donations.
“We feel there is a real need right now, and we want to lend a helping hand to our neighbors,” said John Soules Jr., president and co-CEO of John Soules Foods. “Our hope is that providing protein-rich foods to local food banks will ease the burden many are facing at this time.”
