(Memphis, TN) May 25, 2022, Land O’Lakes, Inc. donated nearly 40,000 pounds of LAND O LAKES® Macaroni & Cheese to Mid-South Food Bank through the Land O’Lakes First Run Program.

The First Run Program has donated more than 6.4 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,” 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.”

To accompany the in-kind donation, GreenPoint Ag, with local ties to Memphis, has given a $5,000 donation to the Mid-South Food Bank. “We believe in the good work being done for people across the Mid-South by this exceptional organization,” said Jeff Blair, President & CEO of GreenPoint Ag. “The need is great, and we are honored to be able to show our support.” GreenPoint Ag is a joint venture between Alabama Farmers Cooperative, Tennessee Farmers Cooperative, and WinField United (a Land O’Lakes subsidiary).

“Mid-South Food Bank is grateful for the 40,000-pound donation from Land O’ Lakes and the $5,000 contribution from GreenPoint Ag. Both companies are helping us feed the need for thousands across 31 counties in Tennessee, Mississippi, and Arkansas,” said Cathy Pope, President & CEO of Mid-South Food Bank. “Partnerships like this are invaluable to the food bank, as they make it easier for us to provide nutritious meals for families facing hunger.”
