Foster Farms is donating more than 14,000 pounds of holiday turkeys to Northwest Harvest.
The turkeys will be distributed today to low-income families at Northwest Harvest’s Cherry Street Food Bank.
The donation is one of 10 truckloads of holiday turkey donations the company is delivering to food banks and community groups in California, Oregon and Washington.
Foster Farms says that it will be donating over 126,000 pounds of turkey throughout the country this holiday season.
The recent devastation of communities in California, Oregon and Washington due to wildfires is one inspiration for the donations says a Foster Farm’s press release. Another inspiration is that 14 percent of Washington households are food insecure, representing more than 2.7 million households.
