Here’s the full news release from Cargill:
As the holidays approach, many families will struggle to make ends meet, and the tradition of turkey for the holidays may not always be possible. But with help from the Honeysuckle White® turkey brand, Kroger and Feeding America Southwest Virginia, the holiday turkey tradition can carry on for many deserving families.

“As part of Cargill’s focus on nourishing those in our communities, we’re excited to once again partner with Kroger to help feed families through Feeding America Southwest Virginia this holiday season,” said Steve Willardsen, president of Cargill’s turkey business. “Helping those in the communities in which we live and work makes for stronger communities overall.
