Maple Leaf Farms Among Companies that Donate 75 Tons of Poultry for Hunger Relief
November 21

Maple Leaf Farms recently joined forces with other Indiana-based poultry companies to donate more than 75 tons of poultry products to hunger relief organizations throughout the Hoosier state. Governor Holcomb and Lt. Governor Crouch were on hand at a special ceremony at the statehouse to acknowledge the donations and recognize the Indiana’s poultry industry.

Organized by the Indiana State Poultry Association (ISPA), this marks the 70th year that the poultry industry in Indiana has organized a large-scale food donation to benefit charitable organizations in the state. The ISPA members that donate the products each year are responsible for more than 95 percent of the chicken, turkey, eggs and duck produced in Indiana.

“Maple Leaf Farms is keenly aware of the food insecurity issues that many Hoosiers face,” said Maple Leaf Farms Chief Operating Officer Scott Reinholt.  “Throughout 2017, our company donated more than 12 tons of poultry products to hunger relief organizations to help our communities overcome this challenge.”

In addition to donating food to the Food Bank of Northern Indiana and Community Harvest Food Bank of Northeast Indiana, Maple Leaf Farms also made direct contributions to local food pantries throughout Kosciusko County.

“As a family-owned business and a food company, Maple Leaf Farms takes pride in supporting families in our local communities with nutritious poultry products,” said Maple Leaf Farms Co-President Scott Tucker.  “And we are extremely proud to be part of an industry that has been focused on hunger relief for 70 years.”
