Augason Farms, an industry leading emergency food manufacturing company has donated over 35,000 individual emergency meals to victims of hurricanes and the widespread flooding that affected the gulf coast area. “We saw the need for immediate help and decided to step up to the plate and send some nutritious pre-prepared meals to the victims of these terrible disasters,” stated Augason Farms president, Mark Augason. “We plan to continue our donation program throughout the month of October.”
In addition to donations to local food banks and charitable organizations in the Houston and gulf coast area, Augason Farms has also worked with FEMA to increase their supply of emergency food supplies. “FEMA needed more food than they had pre-stocked, so they contacted us because they know that we are not only a distributor of emergency food, but that we actually manufacture all of our own products and can increase production capacity when needed,” Mark added. Augason Farms’ 150,000 sq. ft. manufacturing plant has the capability to produce thousands of emergency meals per day.
