Vegan brand Fry Family Foods has donated 5,000 plant-based burgers to help feed the homeless in Southern California. 

The meat-free company has partnered with Second Harvest Food Bank of Orange County, which fed more than 250,000 people in need each month last year. 

‘We had to do something’

“When we saw that 112,000 children in Orange County may go hungry every month and that 22 percent of seniors are also at risk of going hungry, we knew we had to do something,” said Fry’s International Marketing Director, Tammy Fry, in a statement sent to Plant Based News.

“Through their Kids Café, School Pantry and Senior Grocery programs, Second Harvest Food Bank of Orange County is committed to providing meals to those in need in the Southland and we’re honored to be a part of that effort.”

‘Paramount importance’ 

“We are grateful to businesses like Fry’s for their support and involvement in our pledge to feed nearly a quarter of a million people in Orange County every month,” added Katie Shea, Food Sourcing Coordinator for Second Harvest Food Bank of Orange County. 

“When so many in our community are struggling to put food on their tables, ensuring that every person in Southern California has access to a healthy meal is of paramount importance and companies like Fry’s make it possible for us to provide meals to those in need.”
