Cargill Works with Retailers to Donate Thanksgiving Turkeys to Homeless

WICHITA, Kan. -- As part of its national "More To Share" hunger-fighting program, Cargill Meat Solutions here, producer of Honeysuckle White and Shady Brook Farms turkey products, will donate more than 115,000 pounds of turkey to help feed the hungry during the holidays through partnerships with retailers.

Cargill said it is making the donations in cooperation with grocers to benefit food banks, soup kitchens and other hunger-fighting charities. Across America, charitable organizations in nearly 30 cities will benefit from the More To Share program by receiving donated Honeysuckle White or Shady Brook Farms turkeys this year. Nationwide, the donated turkeys will help feed hundreds of thousands of people in need this holiday season.

"It is important and meaningful to us as a company to assist charities in feeding those in need who otherwise may not have turkey at Thanksgiving," said Amy Walenta of the Honeysuckle White and Shady Brook Farms More To Share program. "Hunger is an ongoing problem, and charities need not only food items, but money and volunteers as well. Our donation is a starting point, and we challenge other businesses and individuals across the nation to join us in helping to fight hunger however they can."

Since the More To Share program began 11 years ago, Cargill Meat Solutions and its parent company Cargill, Incorporated have donated approximately 1.1 million pounds of Honeysuckle White and Shady Brook Farms turkey to charities across the country.
