Perdue commits protein to Hurricane Harvey relief efforts in Texas

Perdue has committed a minimum of one million pounds of protein to support relief efforts in Houston and surrounding communities in southeastern Texas after flooding from Hurricane Harvey.

Donated protein will be directed to local Feeding America-affiliated food banks and the Houston Independent School District.

As part of Perdue’s ongoing commitment to Feeding America, about half of the protein donation will be distributed to food banks in the Houston area and in Victoria, Texas, and San Antonio. Rescue efforts are also underway for pets and animals, and Perdue has donated nearly 68,000 pounds of its Spot Farms brand dehydrated dog food to Feeding America.

In addition, the Houston Independent School District will receive 500,000 pounds of protein to assist feed victims and first responders through a network of nine feeding center in surrounding communities.
