ConAgra Mills and Spicetec Flavors & Seasonings raised $110,000 in the fourth annual Child Hunger Ends Here Golf Event. The money benefited Food Bank for the Heartland’s Mobile Pantry Program, a traveling pantry that distributes food in rural areas of Nebraska and western Iowa. This year’s funds will be used to feed about 2,000 families in areas where there is high need but limited resources.
ConAgra has raised more than $400,000 since the event was founded in 2010, and has also helped to feed more than 1,800 children through the Backpack program, which provides food to kids during the school year, and about 2,000 families through the Mobile Pantry program.
“It is an opportunity for us to share our passion and commitment to give back to our community with many of our customers and industry partners,” said Bill Stoufer, president of ConAgra. I am proud to team up with the Food Bank for the Heartland and am thankful for our generous 35 sponsors and 200 golfers for participating in this year’s event.”
