International Paper's Team in Georgia Donated to Their Local Food Bank Second Harvest of Coastal Georgia With Nearly 2,000 Boxes for Meal Distributions

Submitted by International Paper Company

With news of school closures and other community concerns due to COVID-19, the International Paper team in Savannah, Georgia reached out to local food bank Second Harvest to see how they could help. A donation of nearly 2,000 boxes will support school meal distributions.

For many students, school-provided breakfast and lunch serve as their only meals of the day. To ensure students continue to receive the nutrition they need, the food bank is using the boxes to deliver food supplies to district students.  

“We understand that right now the need and demand for our products is greater than ever,” Jay Wilson, mill manager, International Paper, said. “The boxes we provide are an essential resource to help our local community address food insecurity and get necessary supplies to our children and their families.”

This donation is part of International Paper’s support of the Feeding America network of food banks. Learn more.
