PEI Food Banks will benefit from ground beef donation.
Atlantic Beef Products (ABP) was proud to be part of “PEI Burger Love Day” on April 23, 2016. Island restaurants and their burger loving customers conquered the day with 8061 burgers consumed.
ABP announced that they would provide ¼ lb of ground beef for each of those burgers, that’s about 2016 pounds of ground beef!
On Thursday Sept 16 at 2 pm, 500 pounds of ground beef will be delivered to The Upper Room Food Bank in Charlottetown. This is the second of four donations that will be made to PEI Food Banks across the Island over the next few months.
Mike Macdonald of the Upper Room Hospitality Ministry, PEI’s central food bank said, “PEI Food Banks are very thankful to Atlantic Beef Products for the support we are receiving. The donation of Beef will help all food banks to provide valuable protein to our clients. We are blessed with this support and would like to thank everyone who took part and supported our restaurants and local beef industry through Burger Love last April.”
Russ Mallard, President of Atlantic Beef Products said, “we are pleased to be providing fresh and local beef to the Island and Atlantic Canada and proud to support the Food Banks of PEI. We wish to congratulate Island restaurants and their customers for allowing us to be part of paying it forward for our community and contributing to the PEI Food Banks.”
Atlantic Beef Products Inc. is located in Albany, Prince Edward Island and provides high quality beef products from cattle raised on pasture on small family farms and supplies leading grocery retailers, food service distributors and independent butchers throughout Canada.
