The donation – the equivalent of 33,000 meals – is part of the Perdue’s Delivering Hope to Our Neighbors® program to improve quality of life and build strong communities.

“This gift of nutritious protein comes at a time when families continue to struggle with putting meals on their tables,” said Liz Reasoner, Executive Director of the Food Bank of the Albemarle. “For years, Perdue Farms has been a tremendous partner in our ability to alleviate the hardships of those struggling with food insecurity. Together, we are providing wholesome meals and delivering a little hope to our neighbors.”

Nearly 42,000 people in northeast North Carolina do not have regular access to enough food for a healthy, active lifestyle, including one in four children or 23 percent of the population, according to the food bank.
