Dean Foods, a provider of wholesome, nutritious dairy products in the US, has been recognised for its efforts to fight hunger by being named a national Mission Partner by Feeding America.
Since 2008, Dallas-based Dean Foods donated nearly 40m pounds of food and dairy products, hundreds of thousands of dollars and countless hours of volunteerism to fight hunger in communities with Dean Foods operations.
According to Feeding America, in 2010, Dean Foods donated more than £12m of food that served more than 20,000 charities throughout 32 states across the Feeding America network.
James Baldwin, CEO, Community Food Share, said: "The impact WhiteWave has had on our ability to fulfil our mission is significant, real and lasting. For decades, WhiteWave has helped Community Food Share in its mission to ensure that the people of Boulder and Broomfield counties have access to nutritious food. This has included unique sponsorships, milk and other product donations, and a $250,000 grant to support a new warehouse, allowing the food bank to serve more people."
