Foster Farms donates more than 35,000 servings of chicken to Selma Area Food Bank

Company’s COVID-19 Hunger Relief Efforts is providing 2.4 million servings of poultry to families in need

DEMOPOLIS, Alabama  On Tuesday, June 2, Foster Farms delivered a donation of more than 35,000 servings of chicken to Selma Area Food Bank to help feed local families. Last month, the family-owned company announced a donation of 2.4 million servings of poultry to food banks and hunger relief organizations in Alabama, Louisiana and on the West Coast. Truckloads of poultry are now being delivered to these organizations providing lean protein to families in need.

“Up and down the West Coast and in communities where we live and work, the economic effects of COVID-19 have been devastating,” said Foster Farms VP of Communications Ira Brill. “We are committed to supporting the important work our community organizations and longtime food bank partners are doing to fight hunger during these unprecedented times.”

“In all of the years I have worked on the front lines supporting those in need, I have never seen such a steep spike in demand,” Jeff Harrison, executive director of Selma Area Food Bank. “Foster Farms’ donation comes at a critical time when need has skyrocketed. We are grateful for their generous support in helping put food on the table for so many.”

Foster Farms maintains production facilities in Demopolis, Alabama, Louisiana, California, Oregon, Washington, and is leveraging its resources to expedite relief efforts. The donations are a continuation of a decade-long commitment to fighting hunger and responding to community need in time of crisis. Foster Farms encourages others to join in its efforts by donating to their local food bank or hunger relief organization.
