A CARRUM Downs food manufacturer has teamed with a charity to donate over $50,000 worth of food to people in need.
Orgran Foods, which manufactures gluten free and allergen free foods, made a donation of cereals, snacks, and biscuits to Pantry 5000. The charity provides emergency food relief to people in the Frankston and Kingston areas.
Pantry 5000 manager Ken Gooding said “it is clear that a growing number of people in our community are needing assistance to put food on the table right now. Pantry 5000 relies on the support of volunteers and generous donors to continue our work. Having the support of a local business like Orgran means we can reach even more people in need and ensure that no one needs to go hungry.”
The 12,000 donated items are set to be distributed over the next eight weeks.
