Smithfield and Safeway donated more than 25,000 pounds of protein Oregon Food Bank as part of Smithfield’s Helping Hungry Homes tour. This considerable donation will provide more than 100,000 servings to communities throughout Oregon, where 32 percent of food bank assistance recipients are children who depend on school lunch programs throughout the year.
Representatives from Smithfield, Safeway, and Oregon Food Bank hosted a brief press conference to discuss the importance of donations such as this and to raise awareness of hunger in the region, where one in five people suffer from food insecurity.
