Viking Pest Control, an Anticimex Company, launched its annual food drive to collect grocery donations for FulFill Food Bank. The project helps to ensure local families in need will be able to put food on the table in time for Thanksgiving.
Fulfill provides over 12 million meals a year through its network of over 300 food pantries and soup kitchens. This great organization also offers many programs that fight hunger including food delivery, Kids’ Feeding Programs, Mobile Pantries, Culinary Training, SNAP enrollment assistance and Volunteer Gardens.
In partnership with many local organizations, Fulfill Food Bank assists individuals in job searches, money management, tax return preparations, health insurance programs, home ownership counseling and childcare services.
Viking Pest Control staff members delivered 1,200 pounds of canned and boxed good items as well as 26 frozen turkeys to Fulfill in Neptune, N.J. This donation should provide approximately 1,000 Thanksgiving meals to those in need.
“We are delighted to report that Viking Pest Control was able to collect and donate over 1,200 pounds of grocery items and 26 frozen turkeys,” Eric Gunner, Viking’s business development manager, said in a news release. “Being a part of our annual food drive continues to make me proud to be a part of this company. It is heartwarming to witness so many of our Viking team members pitching in; they made this donation possible, and we are extremely grateful for all who contributed so generously.”
Viking Pest Control has a history of giving back to the communities they service, and per its news release, “is delighted to have been able to organize the annual food drive and ensure families are able to enjoy satisfying and nutritious meals this Thanksgiving.”
