Hamlet Protein supports local US communities
As millions of Americans struggle with the impact of COVID-19, a series of devastating tornados hit the Southeast United States. Hamlet Protein Inc. joined forces with some of its customers and local relief organisations to support local communities including agricultural industry employees and their families.
In April, tornados struck communities in the Southeast US, damaging and destroying numerous homes and business buildings. Hamlet Protein donated to volunteer fire departments in the area that have shown tremendous commitment in helping families in need.
Food banks across the US support families and individuals through the donation of food. The economic impact of COVID-19 has prompted an increased demand for food donations. Hamlet Protein Inc. contributed to foodbanks in Oklahoma to support their efforts.
Hamlet Protein Inc.also donated to the "Meating the Need Campaign" that provides food and support to families impacted by COVID-19 in the upper Midwest.
"Hamlet Protein is part of the food chain. Through the health of farm animals, we contribute to feeding the world. In times like these, when a pandemic and storms collide, we feel it is important to support those in need. Through our donations we join forces with many other organisations aiming to make a difference to local communities," saidGrady Fain, regional director NCA at Hamlet Protein.
