Donated Carrots Will Be Delivered to Many Food Banks Across the Midwest

Today Hy-Vee delivered approximately 33,600 pounds of whole carrots donated by Grimmway Farms to OGT! These were delivered in 28 bunkers with about 2,000-2,300 carrots per bunker! The donation comes as food banks across the Midwest struggle to keep their shelves stocked due to increased demand from the coronavirus. The donation will be distributed across northeast Nebraska to benefit individuals and families in need. This is part of a series of donations that Hy-Vee and its suppliers are making to local communities and food banks across Hy-Vee’s eight-state region. Thank you, Hy-Vee and Grimmway Farms for this generous donation of carrots to share with those in need.
