“It is important and meaningful to us as a company to assist charities in feeding those in need who otherwise may not have turkey at Thanksgiving,” said Lorena Rull of the Honeysuckle White turkey More To Share program. “Hunger is an ongoing problem, and charities need not only food items, but money and volunteers as well. Our donation is a starting point, and we challenge other businesses and individuals to also help fight hunger however they can.”

Since the More To Share program began 10 years ago, it has donated more than one million pounds of Honeysuckle White turkey to charities across the country.
