May 12th, 2017, Barre, VT- Last week, representatives from Long Trail Brewing Company and Farrell Distributing visited the Vermont Foodbank to present a check for $12,285 to fight hunger in Vermont. During July and December 2016, Long Trail Brewing Company donated $1 for every case of Long Trail sold at Hannaford Supermarkets throughout New England.
“Long Trail Brewing is honored to partner with our good friends at Hannaford and Farrell Distributing to support the VT Foodbank,” said Jed Nelson, Marketing Director for Long Trail Brewing Company. “Most people have no idea that 1 in 4 Vermonters face food insecurity. The services that the Foodbank provides to our community are nothing short of amazing. We are proud to help their efforts through this program.”
In Vermont, Farrell Distributing matched Long Trail’s donation dollar for dollar. “I was just reflecting with David Farrell the other day about how proud we are of the programs our brand partners continue to run to support the Vermont Foodbank,” said Ryan Chaffin, Director of Marketing for Farrell Distributing. “Our commitment to community is important to us here, and the Foodbank is top tier with the service they provide for our fellow citizens who need the help. Kudos to Long Trail for once again stepping up and supporting this important organization here in Vermont.”
“Hannaford is proud to partner with Farrell Distributing and Long Trail Brewery to help Vermonters who are at risk of going hungry,” said Samara Bushey, Hannaford’s Director of Operations in Vermont. “The Vermont Foodbank is a vital resource for people across our state who are struggling financially and rely on local pantries and meals programs for the nutritious food they need. Donations like this one make a real difference in the local community, through the Foodbank and its partner agencies.”
