Smithfield Foods, Inc. and Albertsons joined forces to donate more than 35,000 pounds of protein to Montana Food Bank Network. Smithfield’s contribution was part of the company’s 2018 Helping Hungry Homes® donation tour. Now in the program’s 10th year, Helping Hungry Homes® is Smithfield’s signature hunger-relief initiative focused on alleviating hunger and helping Americans become more food secure. The donation, equivalent to more than 141,000 servings, will help families fight hunger across Montana.

Smithfield and Albertsons representatives presented the donation to Montana Food Bank Network at an event at the food bank this morning. Members of the organizations discussed food insecurity in the local community and the significance of this donation, which will provide protein throughout the food bank’s service area, reaching more than 130,000 food insecure individuals across Montana. 

“At Albertsons we are committed to helping those in the communities we call home,” said Bob Simonson, district manager for Albertsons Companies Intermountain Division. “We are thankful for the opportunity to team up with Smithfield and contribute to the Montana Food Bank Network.”
