You Did It!: #7MILLIONMEALS

$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!
