C&S Wholesale Grocers Family of Companies Donates Turkeys for Neighbors in Need

Keene, NH – During this holiday season, the C&S Wholesale Grocers Family of Companies has donated 8,580 turkeys to 25 Feeding America® member food banks. The turkeys, weighing an average of 13 pounds each, will be distributed to families in need, providing approximately 220,000 servings. This is the 16th consecutive year in a row that the company has donated turkeys through Feeding America. 

A USDA report released in September indicated that more than 40 million Americans —1 in 8 households — are struggling to meet their daily nutritional requirements. The report also found that 12.5 million are children.

Additionally, C&S offers free holiday turkeys to its employees. Many choose to donate their turkey to their local food bank to share the spirit of the holiday season with families who might not otherwise have a Thanksgiving meal.

“Feeding America is thankful to C&S Wholesale Grocers for their commitment to helping children and families in need, especially during the holiday season. This generous donation will help thousands of families who struggle to put food on the table,” said Nancy Curby, Senior Vice President of Corporate Partnerships at Feeding America.
