Giant sustainability

Carlisle, Pennsylvania-based The Giant Company has announced a donation of 3,873 hams, turkeys and chickens to 15 partner food banks.

Employees from The Giant Company will also volunteer at several food banks over the next few weeks to organize and restock pantry shelves for spring.

“Everyone deserves a full plate and the chance to gather around the table to enjoy a nutritious meal with their family,” said Jessica Groves, community impact manager.

“With too many facing food insecurity and food banks continuing to see an increase in demand, this donation will deliver nearly 30,000 pounds of protein to families in need throughout our local communities this spring. We also recognize that celebrations look different family to family, and we are proud to provide families with protein options to best meet their needs.”

Hams, turkeys and chickens will be donated to the following hunger relief partners:

  • Blue Ridge Area Food Bank – Verona, Virginia.
  • Central Pennsylvania Food Bank – Harrisburg, Pennsylvania.
  • Chester County Food Bank – Exton, Pennsylvania.
  • CityTeam Chester – Chester, Pennsylvania.
  • Helping Harvest Fresh Food Bank – Reading, Pennsylvania.
  • Indiana County Community Action Program – Homer City, Pennsylvania.
  • Lancaster County Food Hub – Lancaster, Pennsylvania.
  • Manna on Main Street – Lansdale, Pennsylvania.
  • Maryland Food Bank – Hagerstown, Maryland.
  • Mission House – Philadelphia, Pennsylvania.
  • New Britain Baptist Food Larder – New Britain, Pennsylvania.
  • Philabundance – Philadelphia, Pennsylvania.
  • Second Harvest Food Bank – Nazareth, Pennsylvania.
  • Sharing Excess – Philadelphia, Pennsylvania.
  • York County Food Bank – York, Pennsylvania.

“Helping Harvest Fresh Food Bank sincerely appreciates this donation from The Giant Company, which will help so many local families gather for Easter and other family occasions,” said Jay Worrall, president, Helping Harvest Fresh Food Bank.

“We are so grateful for Giant’s ongoing support throughout the year – volunteering, donating protein through its Meat the Needs Program and raising funds to support the work of our mission.”

From March 31-April 9, customers can donate their free ham certificates in-store at the register or donate 400 Choice Rewards points online, for which The Giant Company will donate $10 to a local food bank.
