Fall is almost here and what could be more comforting than a warm plate of macaroni and cheese?  Colorado families facing hunger will be able to enjoy some soon, thanks to a generous donation of 40,000 pounds of fresh mac and cheese from Land O’Lakes.

“As a national, farmer-owned cooperative, Land O’Lakes is committed to help the growing number of people who struggle to put food on their table,” said Land O’Lakes Foundation Executive Director Lydia Botham. “The First Run program provides a unique opportunity for Land O’Lakes to provide a fresh, nutritious product to families that can enjoy it.”

“1 in 7 people and nearly 1 in 4 children in Colorado don’t always know where their next meal is coming from. We are grateful to be able to share this generous donation from Land O’ Lakes with our neighbors facing hunger. It means so much to our organization, our partner hunger relief agencies and all the people we nourish. Together we can solve hunger.” said Kevin Seggelke, President and CEO, Food Bank of the Rockies.

The First Run program is part of Land O’Lakes’ Feeding Our Communities initiative.  For more information on any of these programs, visit the Land O’Lakes Foundation web page at www.landolakesinc.com.
