In a significant move to combat hunger and support communities, Lactalis USA has announced a partnership with Feeding America, the largest hunger-relief organization in the United States. The partnership, unveiled in celebration of National Dairy Month, aims to provide the equivalent of 1.5 million meals to individuals facing food insecurity. This collaboration underscores Lactalis USA’s commitment to ending hunger, increasing access to nutritious dairy products, and strengthening local communities.

Supporting Hunger-Relief Efforts

Lactalis USA, a subsidiary of the world-leading dairy company Lactalis, will support hunger-relief efforts through a variety of means, including product and monetary donations, as well as employee volunteerism and giving. The company, known for its beloved international and local dairy brands, seeks to make a meaningful impact in communities across the United States.

Strategic Partnership with Feeding America

Feeding America, part of a nationwide network of over 200 partner food banks, plays a crucial role in addressing food insecurity. Through this partnership, Lactalis USA and Feeding America will collaborate on various initiatives, including employee volunteer events and fundraising activities. The donations raised through this partnership will directly benefit the communities represented by all 17 Lactalis USA locations, where employees live and work.

A Shared Commitment to Ending Hunger

Esteve Torrens, CEO of Lactalis USA, emphasized the company’s dedication to addressing food insecurity. “As a dairy industry leader, providing access to delicious and nutritious products to our neighbors in need is central to who we are,” Torrens stated. “This partnership represents a collaboration of business and non-profit to help make a positive difference in local communities across the United States.”

History of Support

Lactalis USA has a history of supporting Feeding America and its network. In 2023, the company participated in the Fight Hunger. Spark Change. campaign, raising nearly $50,000 and providing over 450,000 meals to those facing hunger. Additionally, following a tragic mass shooting in Buffalo, N.Y., in 2022, Lactalis donated over 100,000 pounds of dairy products to support community members impacted by the store’s temporary closure.

Strengthening Communities Together

The partnership between Lactalis USA and Feeding America highlights the impact that businesses and non-profits can have when they come together to address critical social issues. By leveraging their resources and expertise, both organizations are working towards a common goal of ending hunger and building stronger, more resilient communities.
