$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!

Send Military Gifts this Veterans Day with Operation Gratitude

military gifts from Hickory FarmsIt has been more than 90 years since President Woodrow Wilson proclaimed November 11 to be Armistice Day. Originally commemorating the end of World War I and the soldiers who fought in it, the holiday was later renamed Veterans Day and has come to be a celebration of all Armed Forces veterans who have served our country.

With Veterans Day approaching, it’s the perfect time to say ‘Thank you’ to the brave men and women of the United States military. Here at Hickory Farms, we are proud to be working with Operation Gratitude to bring a smile to the faces of our troops.
