ConAgraFoods Team Up with Food for the Heartland

ConAgra Mills and Spicetec Flavors & Seasonings (SFS), the commercial food businesses of ConAgra Foods, one of North America's largest packaged food companies, once again teamed up with Food for the Heartland in feeding 2,000 families in rural Nebraska and western Iowa. The 2 sister companies hosted their fourth annual Child Hunger Ends Here Golf Event which raised $110,000 benefitting the Mobile Pantry Program of the Food Bank for the Heartland, a traveling food pantry that distributes food in rural areas of Nebraska and western Iowa.

The money raised through this year's golf event will be used to feed approximately 2,000 families in areas where there is a high need but limited resources. According to Bill Stoufer, president of ConAgra Mills, this event continues to grow each year, and is an opportunity to share the company's passion and commitment to give back to its community with many of its customers and industry partners.

The ConAgra Mills and SFS golf event builds on a 20-year commitment by ConAgra Foods and the ConAgra Foods Foundation to end child hunger. More than $50 million have been donated by ConAgra Foods since 1993 to nonprofit organizations who are strongly seeking sustainable solutions to end child hunger. The amount also includes a 5-year, $10 million pledge to Feeding America from the ConAgra Foods Foundation, the largest donation ever made to the nation's leading domestic hunger-relief charity.

ConAgra Foods has also donated so far more than 300 million pounds of food to Feeeding America member food banks across the nation.
