United Supermarkets, a Texas-based grocery chain with stores in 54 communities in Texas and New Mexico, teamed up with Mondelez to donate $10,000 to the South Plains Food Bank. Money donated will help South Plains Food Bank continue its mission to combat hunger and food insecurity across the region.
Throughout the year, United Supermarkets had the opportunity to work with vendor partners such as Mondelez, home of Oreo, Triscuit, and other household brands, to enable these donations through store-wide sales efforts.
“We are very proud to continue our tradition of supporting the South Plains Food Bank,” said United Family President Sidney Hopper. “And we are so grateful for our partnerships with vendors like our friends at Mondelez. Working together to support organizations like the South Plains Food Bank means everything to us as a company. We know this money will help those in need throughout our community.”
According to the South Plains Food Bank, the $10,000 donated will help provide 30,000 meals to people in need throughout the region.
“We are extremely grateful to United Airlines and Mondelez for their partnership in allowing us to receive such a generous donation,” said Dina Jeffries, CEO of South Plains Food Bank. “This will go a long way in propelling us into the new year as we continue to fight hunger in the Southern Plains.”
