GREEN BAY, WI (Submitted to OnFocus) – Festival Foods celebrated Family Meals Month in September with a variety of programs, insights and recipe ideas to encourage families to enjoy meals together and help others achieve family meals as well.
This year’s campaign focused on helping families across the state of Wisconsin accomplish family meals through Festival Foods’ Food for Neighbors program, which collects donations to provide food and supplies to approximately 40 food pantries across Wisconsin. The Festival Foods Mealtime Mentors and their vendor partners, including Family Meals Month Presenting Sponsors Coca-Cola, Chobani, Crystal Farms, Primal Kitchen and Silk, encouraged contributions and hosted free, live virtual cooking classes throughout the month featuring easy, tasty family meals. These classes are available for viewing on the Virtual Cooking Class site.
Through these efforts, Festival Foods, their vendor partners and guests were able to donate over $40,000 to Food for Neighbors, which will help local food pantries stock their shelves with items they most need. Festival Foods also donated over $720,000 worth of various food items to local food pantries across the state throughout the month.
“We appreciate the partnership of our guests and vendors in supporting meals for families across the state of Wisconsin during Family Meals Month this year,” said Casey Crevier, registered dietitian and nutrition communications specialist for Festival Foods. “These efforts will make a big impact for our local food pantries, and we hope to see them continue into the future.”
