Four Seasons Produce Inc, a wholesale distributor of produce, and its subsidiaries announce a fund-raising partnership with Feeding America. Running June 26 through July 4, Four Seasons will donate $0.10 for every case of produce sold and delivered. The distributor aims to support the communities it services with the Feeding America donations.

Besides pledging a portion of sales, Four Seasons is also working with and encouraging suppliers and partners to make a difference. Hunger in the United States is a growing issue affecting a significant portion of the American population. One in six people don’t know where their next meal is coming from, and 14.6% of all households are food-insecure. One dollar donated through this effort is the equivalent of seven meals provided for the food-insecure of Washington DC and Pennsylvania.

Feeding America, a hunger-relief organization, operates to feed America’s hungry via a national network of food banks. More than 37 million low-income individuals facing hunger are served each year, with 14 million of them being children and 3 million being seniors. Participating food banks in the DC and Pennsylvania area include Philabundance, Central PA Food Bank, Greater Berks Food Bank, and Capital Area Food Bank in DC.
