Marfood USA Inc. has donated more than $25,000 in Pemmican Beef Jerky to Feeding America member, Gleaners Community Food Bank in Taylor, Mich.
On April 1, to launch the new www.pemmican.com Web site Marfood USA gave away a free bag of Pemmican Beef Jerky every minute to consumers and donated five bags per minute to Feeding America, the largest food bank system in the U.S.
Marfood USA President Alain Martinet is proud that his company is able to deliver on a promise that will help those in need, especially in Marfood USA’s local community.
“People often refer to it as a snack, but Pemmican Beef Jerky is more about providing pure sustenance and energy to get you through the day,” Martinet said. “Protein is an important part of our overall diet, and even more important for those in need. Beef Jerky is a hardy food: low in fat and high in protein. We’re proud to be able to provide this type of product.”
“We truly appreciate this thoughtful and generous donation of beef jerky,” said W. DeWayne Wells, president of Gleaners Community Food Bank. “It is only through the generosity of donors like Marfood USA that we are able to meet the emergency food needs of children, seniors and families. We are very grateful to Marfood USA for responding to the needs of the community in this way.”
As one of the oldest and largest food banks in the U.S., Gleaners Community Food Bank’s mission has been to collect and distribute millions of pounds of emergency food each year for hungry children, families and seniors in southeastern Michigan.
