Mountaire Farms To Pack 2,500 Food Boxes For Needy Families as Part of Thanksgiving at Easter

As Easter approaches, Mountaire Farms is once again gearing up to feed hungry families on Delmarva. The company is seeking volunteers who want to help pack 2,500 food boxes at their warehouse in Selbyville, Del., on Tuesday, April 16, 2019.


For the past few decades, Mountaire has donated a complete meal in a box to needy families at Thanksgiving, at Christmas, and at Easter. A local food drive at area grocery stores and schools before Thanksgiving helps supplement the effort.


Volunteers from over 35 local churches, food pantries and shelters will arrive on April 16th and begin preparing boxes of food – including a Mountaire Roaster – then delivering them to their respective churches for distribution to families in need. The boxes packed at the event will provide a nutritious Easter meal to more than 11,250 members of our local community.


“Mountaire is proud to host this charitable, faith-based initiative during the Easter season,” said President Phillip Plylar. “Our employees enjoy giving back to the community and taking part in such a great event. Giving back is what this company is all about.”


Volunteers will gather at 8:30 am at the company’s warehouse on Railroad Avenue across from the processing plant. To sign up, contact Roger Marino at Mountaire Farms at (302) 934-3123 or email: [email protected].
