Perdue Farms through the Franklin P. and Arthur W. Perdue Foundation has donated $10,000 in cash in addition to 40,000 pounds of protein to Second Harvest Food Bank of Metrolina, NC.

Through the mobile pantry, children and their families at risk of hunger and Winecoff Elementary School received staple pantry items in addition to Perdue chicken, bread, produce, eggs and juice. Since 2015, 2,000 families have received assistance providing supplementary nutrition to financially stressed budgets. It is understood that Winecoff Elementary has a free/reduced lunch rate of 90 percent. The school is located near the Concord, NC plant of Perdue Foods.


An ongoing partnership with Feeding America earned Perdue Farms the New Donor of the Year award from the organization in addition to the Protein Donor of the Year award. Perdue Farms has exceeded 4 million pounds in protein donations annually since 2016.
