Last week, Triumph Foods, L.L.C. of St. Joseph donated just over 30,000 pounds of premium pork products to Second Harvest Food Bank of Northwest Missouri. This donation of lean, high-quality pork spare ribs, back ribs, hams, loins, tenderloins, pork steaks, and other cuts of meat is enough food to help provide over 36,000 meals across the 19 counties Second Harvest serves in Northwest Missouri and Northeast Kansas. This area currently has more than 49,000 individuals who aren’t sure where they will get their next meal.
“A donation of this size allows our organization to provide over 36,000 nutritious meals to those in need,” Blake Haynes, Communications Coordinator for Second Harvest, “We thank Triumph Foods for their support and dedication of creating a hunger-free Northwest Missouri and Northeast Kansas.”
“Triumph Foods continues to stand by our commitment to Second Harvest and will continue to fight against food insecurity and hunger in St. Joseph and the entire Second Harvest service area. A strong commitment to our community is a fundamental part of the foundation of our company.” said Chris Clark, Communications Manager with Triumph. “We are excited to grow this partnership with Second Harvest for years to come.”
