Land O’Lakes, Inc. donated 40,000 pounds of LAND O LAKES® Macaroni & Cheese to the Food Lifeline.
This is the Land O’Lakes First Run Program’s 74th donation since it was established in 2010. The program is committed to donating truckloads of fresh product year round, made specifically for food banks to help alleviate hunger nationwide. As part of the First Run Program, Land O’Lakes has donated more than 2.8 million pounds of product.
“Food Lifeline provides 30 percent of the meals being served by food banks, meal programs and shelters across western Washington,” said Food Lifeline President and CEO Linda Nageotte. “So donations like this mac & cheese make a huge difference in stopping hunger.”
“As a national, farmer-owned cooperative, Land O’Lakes is committed to help the growing number of people who struggle to put food on their table,” said Land O’Lakes Foundation Executive Director Lydia Botham. “The First Run Program provides a unique opportunity for Land O’Lakes to provide a fresh, nutritious product to families that can enjoy it.”
The First Run Program is part of Land O’Lakes’ Feeding Our Communities initiative. For more information on any of these programs, visit the Land O’Lakes Foundation web page at www.landolakesinc.com.
