United Supermarkets and Mondelez donated $10,000 to the South Plains Food Bank on Dec. 27, with the money going to help fight hunger and food insecurity across the region.
Throughout the year, United had the opportunity to work with vendor partners such as Mondelez to make donations through sales initiatives in its stores.
“We are so proud to continue our tradition of support for the South Plains Food Bank,” said Sidney Hopper, president of The United Family.
“And I’m so thankful for partnerships with vendors like our friends at Mondelez. Working together to help support an organization like South Plains Food Bank means everything to us as a company. We know this money will help those in need across our community.”
According to the food bank, the donation will help provide 30,000 meals.
“We are so grateful for the partnerships of United and Mondelez that allow us to receive such a generous donation,” said Dina Jeffries, CEO of the South Plains Food Bank.
“This goes a long way to help propel us into the new year as we continue fighting hunger on the South Plains.”
