This is the second year Carnivore Meat Company has partnered with Ben’s Wish for their Annual Christmas Food Drive.  “For us, the Christmas season is about giving and sharing with others in our community,” stated Melissa Olson, VP Marketing & Sales.  “We’re proud to have been able to exceed our goal nearly doubling the amount of donations collected last year to support youth in our area who may not have ample access to nutritious food during the school year.”

The company held its Annual Christmas Food Drive from December 1 through December 13, collecting employee donations of packaged foods.  Donation drop boxes were setup at Carnivore Meat Company’s three locations and the company matched employee donations.  Ben’s Wish volunteers were present on December 17 to accept the donation.
