West Pak Avocado Donates Pallets of Avocados
MURRIETA, CA - Our industry’s best are continuing to do their part in helping the community during the COVID-19 pandemic. As part of the company’s West Pak Cares committee community involvement program, West Pak Avocado is donating pallets of nutritious avocados each week from now through June to Feeding America Riverside | San Bernardino (FARSB).
“West Pak is giving back to our communities to help feed those in need in a time of crisis,” said CEO Mario Pacheco. “Now more than ever before, people need our help. We have the ability to provide and the desire to step up where we can be most effective. We’re honored to partner with FARSB to do our part, and we implore others to follow suit.”
According to a press release, FARSB is a member of Feeding America, the national network of food banks that provides over 4.3 billion meals annually, helping one in seven Americans facing hunger live more secure and stable lives.
FARSB provides food to over 200 partner charities in Riverside and San Bernardino counties, including soup kitchens, pantries, emergency shelters, senior centers, and more. Through the COVID-19 pandemic, FARSB has also begun to serve individuals with fresh produce, snacks, and boxes of emergency shelf-stable items to ensure that families are not going hungry during these uncertain times.
