Perdue has donated annually an average of 1 million to 1.5 million pounds of fresh chicken to FeedMore (and the Central Virginia Food Bank) during that time. That’s more than 15 million pounds of protein, which translates into 18 million meals for needy children, families and seniors across Central Virginia.
