Omega Protein Partners with Northern Neck Food Bank to Help Feed Virginia Families
Date:8/25/2014

Reedville, VA (PRWEB) August 25, 2014

On Saturday, Omega Protein employees teamed up with Northern Neck Food Bank, a charity that supports a network of local food pantries in Virginia’s Northern Neck region, to glean corn from local farmers’ fields. The crops will help feed those who experience hunger or malnourishment, as one-sixth of Americans do. Gleaning involves the collection of leftover crops from farmed fields after they have been commercially harvested.

These harvests can leave behind a large amount of crops that farmers generously donate, but volunteers are needed to get them from farm-to-food pantry. Partnerships like this collaboration between Omega Protein and Northern Neck Food Bank fill that void and have enabled the distribution of over 2.1 million servings of fresh produce to Northern Neck Food Bank recipients over the past two years. The Food Bank distributes gleaned produce to over 3,000 people each month. Approximately 50 percent of the recipients are children or senior citizens.

“We’re happy to help our community whenever we can, and this partnership is a perfect example of our dedication to helping families everywhere live healthier lives through better nutrition,” said Monty Diehl, Omega Protein’s Senior Director of Fishing Operations. “It feels great to know that we’re helping to make sure that fresh food isn’t wasted and is directed to those who really need it.” In total, Omega Protein volunteers gleaned almost 6,000 pounds of corn for donation. Currently, 40 percent of farmed food that could help feed Americans ends up in landfills, but programs like this help reduce the waste.

Processed foods typically donated to food banks are often less nutritious than the produce gleaned by Omega Protein’s employees and donated to Northern Neck Food Bank. Connecting
