Land O’Lakes, Inc. donated nearly 40,000 pounds of LAND O LAKES® Macaroni & Cheese to North Country Food Bank through the Land O’Lakes First Run Program.

 

The First Run Program has donated more than 5 million pounds of product since it was established in 2010. The program is committed to donating truckloads of fresh product year-round, made specifically for food banks to help alleviate hunger across the United States.  

 

“As a national, farmer-owned cooperative, Land O’Lakes is committed to helping the growing number of people who struggle to put food on their table, especially during this unpredictable and uncertain time,” said Sheilah Stewart, SVP & General Counsel, Land O’Lakes, Inc. “The First Run program provides a unique opportunity for Land O’Lakes to offer nutritious products to families in need.”

 

"We are very grateful for Land O’Lakes’ support in the fight against hunger," said Susie Novak Boelter, executive director of North Country Food Bank. "This donation of macaroni and cheese is especially valuable to people in need at this time - when people need help more than ever."
