Todd’s Foods serves up 4,531 meals to the homeless

Todd's Foods check presentation to the Phoenix Rescue Mission

Nicole Peña, Director of Outreach at the Phoenix Rescue Mission, accepts a check to feed the homeless from employees at Todd's Foods in Phoenix.

Todd's Enterprises, Inc. in Phoenix knows what it takes to feed hungry people. For four decades Todd's has provided high quality soups, sauces, salad dressings and a variety of other fine food products to luxury hotels, national chain restaurants, grocery stores, health care facilities,  schools and universities. Now, through a grant from their parent corporation Heinz, Todd's employees chose to feed the homeless by sponsoring more than 4,500 meals at the Phoenix Rescue Mission dining room this Fall. Phoenix Rescue Mission estimates that each meal it serves costs $1.92. 

Todd's graciously chose to support the Mission's Early Bird program, where businesses, churches and individual donors can cover the cost of meals in the month's leading up to our annual Thanksgiving Banquet. 

Todd's warehouse sits approximately two miles west of the Phoenix Rescue Mission shelter. The Mission is thankful to have neighbors like Todd's who care about the homeless and the hopeless and offer their support. The mantra of the Mission is:   "Hope Starts with a Meal". Todd's has certainly served up stock pots full of hope.
