Simek’s Donates 1.2M Meals And Removes Plastic From Environment

Saint Paul Park, Minnesota-based Simek’s, a women-owned quality frozen food products company, has released that its social impact missions in 2021 have addressed the problem of hunger in America and the environment. 

Approximately 1.2 million meals were donated this year through its collaboration with Feeding America for a total of 5.6 million total meals donated since the partnership’s launch. 

A cornerstone of Simek’s philosophy is that meals are meant to be shared. For every Simek’s product purchased, the company donates a meal in the community where the product was purchased by the consumer to a local Feeding America food bank.

Simek’s also embraces a Plastic Neutral Promise. Through its partnership with RePurpose Global, it removes from the environment the equivalent amount of plastic that is used in the packaging and shipping of Simek’s products.

More than 17,509 pounds of ocean-bound plastic have been removed from the environment since the launch of the partnership. All of Simek’s entrée cartons are sustainably sourced by certified organizations who have agreed to make standards, conservation, community and education a top priority in the forestry industry.

“Simek’s is proud to participate in corporate social responsibility programs that reflect our brand’s commitment to delivering both better-for-you food as well as a better world for all,” said Lindsey Hickey, Simek’s president. 

“The problem of hunger in America can be solved if we work together and our customers have enthusiastically embraced our program with Feeding America. As such, in the past 52 weeks, the number of stores carrying at least one Simek’s product has increased by 80 percent as our social impact mission resonates with more customers,” she said.

As a women-owned company, Simek’s commits to helping busy parents and the communities in which they live to eat good, do good. Through its hunger-relief program, for every Simek’s product purchased the company donates a meal in the community where the product was purchased.

To date, more than 5.6 million meals have been donated. Backed by the tradition of providing quality frozen food products since 1972, the company offers premium lasagnas and fully cooked meatballs free from artificial colors, artificial flavors, and preservatives. Its latest addition of a new kid’s food line provides mini meatballs for little fingers that parents can feel good about serving to picky eaters.
