Mountaire packed 20,000 boxes (company-wide) for families facing food insecurity this Easter. At their Selbyville, DE location over 8,000 complete meals were assembled and loaded into church vans and rental trucks.

“We’re only able to do this because of their help,” said Mountaire Farms Spokeswoman Cathy Bassett said.

This is the 30th annual Mountaire Cares’ “Thanksgiving for Thousands,” the poultry company’s signature annual charity event.

The majority of volunteers participate in “Thanksgiving for Thousands” year after year, she said.

This year Mountaire broke its personal best record of number of Thanksgiving meals, each feeding a family of four, donated in one year since the food drive’s inception almost three decades ago.
