Friona, TX - Hi-Pro Feeds in Friona, TX has partnered with Snak Pak 4 Kids™ to fight child hunger
in their local community. Over 16 million children in America live in households struggling with hunger.
While rural areas feed our nation, they struggle with food insecurity just as much as cities do. More than 3 million rural households have a hard time meeting their food needs. In fact, the highest poverty rates in the country are found in rural, non-metropolitan counties.
In the local Friona area, there are almost 900 kids who are food insecure. “We are excited to work with Snak Pak for Kids to assist in making life a little bit better for those kids who are coming to school hungry,” states Varla Wilcox, Marketing Coordinator for Hi-Pro Feeds. Next month, the company is planning an event with a dinner and auction called ‘Hi-Pro Feeds the Future’. All proceeds from the evening are going to benefit the Snak Pak 4 Kids campaign in Friona.
The national initiative called The Drive to Feed Kids™ is the collaboration between Nutra Blend and partners in the feed industry to create awareness about childhood hunger. “Because Hi-Pro Feeds manufactures, and sells animal feed products across North America, this initiative fits very well with our core values,” mentions Wilcox. “We enrich human and animal lives through the production of animal nutrition products. Feeding hungry kids in our local community is part of that commitment.”
The first annual ‘Hi-Pro Feeds the Future’ event is planned for Saturday, April 18, 2015 at 6 pm at the Country Rose, 570 FM 1057 Summerfield, TX. To RSVP or donate an auction item, please contact Varla Wilcox @ 806-250-6820 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
