Feeding the hungry
In an effort to help feed the more than 36 million Americans who go hungry every year, Red Lobster restaurants around the nation will begin donating unused food to charitable organizations through the company's new "Harvest Food Donation Program."
Starting this week, unused food at Red Lobster's more than 640 restaurants throughout the nation will be bagged, weighed, labeled, chilled or frozen, and stored so that it can be donated to charitable organizations. Red Lobster is partnering with Food Donation Connection, a national organization that teams food service companies with charities that feed the needy.
"The biggest benefit for all of these organizations is that they are receiving a free source of high-quality protein and nutritious food from Red Lobster," stated Bill Reighard, president of the Food Donation Connection. "These organizations can focus on their main mission of helping those in need, instead of worrying about the cost and preparation of the food product."
Several charities will benefit from the program, including the Salvation Army, food banks, homeless shelters and soup kitchens.
"Our goal is to nourish and delight everyone we serve," said Kim Lopdrup, president of Red Lobster. "Through the Harvest Food Donation Program, we will provide countless people in our local communities with healthy, nutritional meals. Even a small amount of food from one of our restaurants will go a long way to help people in need."
The Fargo Red Lobster restaurant, 4215 13th Ave. S., is participating in the program.
