Vegan brand Fry Family Foods has donated 5,000 plant based burgers to help feed the homeless in Southern California. They said they believe that they want to ensure every person in Southern California has access to a healthy meal and that is of paramount importance to them.
Second Harvest Food Bank of Orange County that fed more than 250,000 people in need each month last year has partnered with this meat free company. Fry’s International Marketing Director, Tammy Fry, said that when they anticipated that 112,000 children in Orange County may go hungry every month and that 22 percent of seniors are also at risk of going hungry, they knew they had to do something about it.
Fry said that Second Harvest Food Bank of Orange County is committed to providing meals to those in need in the Southland through their Kids Café, School Pantry and Senior Grocery programs and now they are honoured to be a part of this effort too.
Expressing the same sentiments, Katie Shea, Food Sourcing Coordinator for Second Harvest Food Bank of Orange County, added that they are grateful to businesses like Fry’s for their support and involvement in the pledge to feed nearly a quarter of a million people in Orange County every month.
He said that when they know so many in their community are struggling to put food on the tables, making sure that every person in Southern California has access to a healthy meal is of paramount importance to them too and companies like Fry is make it possible for them to provide meals to those in need.
