Dec. 12, 2014, Denver, CO – Ardent Mills, a leading flour-milling and ingredients company, is donating 35,280 loaves of bread from its Integrated Bakery Resources (IBR) specialty bakery to take action to fight hunger in Oregon and Colorado in advance of the holidays.

“At Ardent Mills, we are committed to supporting the communities where we live and work by donating products, volunteering time and talent as well as supporting local businesses,” says Ardent Mills CEO Dan Dye. “This holiday donation is just one way we are helping to nourish these communities.”

According to Tom Reed, food procurement manager with Community Food Share, “despite signs of an improving economy, one in six people throughout our service area still struggle to provide enough provisions for themselves and their families. In Colorado, the bread loaves will help us serve thousands of individuals and families from Community Food Share in Louisville, Weld Food Bank in Greeley and Food Bank for Larimer County in Fort Collins.”

Jeremy Wilebski, warehouse manager with Snowcap Community Charities in Portland, Oregon, notes, “From Birch Community Services and the Oregon Food Bank in Portland, this donation will make a difference and help fight hunger. We value Ardent Mills support as it is helping us feed over 6,000 low-income adults and 3,300 children. While man cannot live on bread alone, we sure don’t want to live without it!”
