CHIPPEWA FALLS, WISC, 2017-Feb-28 — /EPR Retail News/ — Gordy’s Market is pleased to announce the donation of over 950,000 pounds of food to the Feed My People Food Bank in 2016, representing over 745,000 meals.
Gordy’s donates their high-quality food items from each of its 26 grocery stores to Feed My People Food Bank on a daily basis with the food going back to each of its local community food pantries and non-profit organizations serving those in need.
“We are thrilled to be able to give back to our local communities,” said Dave Schafer, Gordy’s Market CEO. “Our communities, and those we serve, are the foundation in which our father (Gordy Schafer) built our family owned and operated business.”
Feed My People is the only food bank in west central Wisconsin, providing food to more than 125 hunger-relief organizations in 14 different counties.
Since 2002, Gordy’s has donated over 1.7 million pounds of food to their local communities.
“We are so appreciative of the relationship Gordy’s has with our hunger-relief partner programs. Donating nearly one million pounds of food in one year is breathtaking. The long-term impact of this generosity in communities throughout west central Wisconsin is truly significant,” said Emily Moore, Feed My People Executive Director.
Established on the Southside of Chippewa Falls in 1966 by Gordy and Donna Schafer, Gordy’s Market locally owns and operates 26 stores in west central Wisconsin.
