$3.3 million raised to help feed children in America Thank you to our generous customers and hardworking associates who helped us exceed our goal of raising more than $700,000 for Share Our Strength’s No Kid Hungry® Campaign in 2013! We are grateful for the generosity of everyone involved in our #7MillionMeals campaign.  Every dollar raised will help connect a child in need with up to ten meals where they live, learn, and play. We already feel so fortunate to have amazing customers who share our products as part of their family traditions. The fact that so many of our customers have also helped to make each day a little brighter for children in need throughout America makes us even more appreciative. Since 2008, more than $3.3 million has been raised by Hickory Farms customers and associates to support the No Kid Hungry® Campaign.  Thank you so much!

No Kid Hungry


Here at Hickory Farms, we feel incredibly fortunate. For over 60 years, our customers have shared our specialty foods and gifts with their friends and family as part of their celebrations.  We are honored to be part of this generous act of sharing and giving, especially during the holidays.

Our customers can also make an optional $1, $3, or $5 donation with any Hickory Farms purchase at or in one of our Holiday Market kiosks or stores.
