The Giant Co. Partners With Airly Foods To Donate Food For Earth Day


Airly Foods and The Giant Co. are teaming up to help feed Philadelphians in celebration of Earth Day. On April 22, joined by Altoro Hall, the city’s director of manufacturing and advanced industries with the Department of Commerce, and State Rep. Joseph Hohenstein, the two companies provided donations and volunteered their time to help to one of the largest food banks in the greater Philadelphia region, Caring For Friends.


“Nonprofits like Caring for Friends have been gravely impacted by inflation and supply chain issues, so this generous donation will allow us to offer not just needed food, but to help hunger and the environment – at once,” said Vince Schivone, CEO of Caring for Friends.

“Our mission is to provide food and friendship to those in need in the Philadelphia five-county area through a free home meal delivery program, an outreach program to people facing homelessness, and by working with 200-plus community-based groups. This donation will go a long way to helping feed those in need, and we are so grateful for Airly and The Giant Company’s contribution.”

Airly Foods donated more than 13,000 packs of its Airly Oat Clouds Snack Crackers to Caring for Friends – enough to provide a three-month supply to Philadelphia community members suffering from hunger. This includes homebound seniors and veterans, people with disabilities and children who heavily rely on Caring for Friends year-round, and especially while school is out of session.

“Here at Airly, we are fierce advocates for not only the well-being of our climate but the well-being of our communities. We acknowledge it will take big changes across the globe to tackle these societal issues, whether it’s climate change, hunger or poverty,” said Jennifer McKnight, co-founder of Airly.


“While we may be a small food brand, we believe that together, small changes can make a huge difference, which is why we are honored to come together with The Giant Company to support the mission of Caring For Friends, helping our Philadelphia-area neighbors in need, while also bettering the planet.”

The Giant Co. provided an additional donation of Airly Oat Clouds to Caring for Friends which will be included in a massive distribution of non-perishable food items. In addition, the company will be providing $5,000 to the nonprofit to help feed neighbors.

“At The Giant Company, it’s important that our supplier partners share our commitment to creating a better tomorrow for the families we serve,” said Manuel Haro, divisional VP of Greater Philadelphia for The Giant Co. “Eliminating hunger will take the efforts of us all, and that’s why we’re thrilled to be teaming up with Airly to celebrate Earth Day and help Caring for Friends do more of what they do best: feeding Philadelphians.”
