Feed the Children believes in providing hope and resources for those without life’s essentials. That’s why all of the company’s donations will support Feed the Children’s domestic relief efforts. Watch more about this effort here.
StarKist® supported the Greater Pittsburgh Community Food Bank with products, financial support and employee volunteer opportunities. In 2020, StarKist made a $25,000 financial donation for the Food Bank’s emergency-response program. This financial donation was used to create 1,250 emergency food. This year, StarKist is a sponsor of the Greater Pittsburgh Community Food Bank “Grow Share,Thrive” campaign to help raise funds to support its community pantry initiative.
When summer comes each year, thousands of kids across the Greater Pittsburgh Area are left without consistent access to healthy meals. StarKist is a corporate sponsor for the Kids Meal Network. The 10-week program feeds children after school has let out and there is no longer the offering of a daily school lunch. The Kids Meal Network offers a hot meal and a snack to the young community three times a week.
StarKist is a proud sponsor of Riverlife, a not for profit with the mission to reclaim, restore and promote Pittsburgh’s riverfronts. From volunteer opportunities to supporting the organization’s annual “Party at the Pier,” Riverlife is doing great things to make Pittsburgh a more livable city!
KOREAN WAR VETERANS OF WESTERN PENNSYLVANIA
Each year, StarKist hosts more than 100 Korean War Vets from the Pittsburgh region for a special thank you luncheon. In addition, we work with a local Boy Scout Troop to oversee the care of the Korean War Memorial on Pittsburgh’s North Shore.
TUNA FOR THE U.S. MILITARY
StarKist is honored to donate product to our soldiers who proudly serve in the United States military. Last year, tuna pouch-filled “Thank You for Your Service” mailers were sent to more than 2,000 soldiers serving our country, both in the U.S. and abroad. We estimate that more than 50,000+ soldiers have received our tuna products through this program over the years.
As part of our commitment to living our vision and being a socially responsible company, StarKist is a proud sponsor of Casey’s Clubhouse Miracle League of the South Hills in Pittsburgh. The Miracle League is for those with special needs and its mission: “Every Child Deserves a Chance to Play Baseball.”
