Carnivore Meat Company and its employees held a “Meat the need” holiday food drive Dec. 11-18, collecting canned meats and other non-perishable food items to support Paul’s Pantry.

The company donated 2,029 pounds of food to the local charity, which is focused on solving food insecurity in the Green Bay area.

Paul’s Pantry supplies food to about 125 households a day, five days a week, averaging about 12,000 people per year. The pantry receives no federal, state or local tax revenue and relies on the community support of volunteers, food suppliers and donors to continue operating.

Every holiday season Carnivore Meat Company partners with a charity organization to hold a food drive, setting up donation drop boxes at each of its three locations. The company also matches all employee donations, doubling their support. 

Earlier last year, Carnivore Meat Company made a $100,000 donation to support area nonprofits during the pandemic, including Paul’s Pantry.

“2020 has been a particularly difficult year and we feel blessed to be able to support our community this Christmas season and throughout the year,” said Melissa Olson, vice president of sales and marketing for Carnivore Meat Company. “Our employees really stepped it up and showed their generosity to support an organization helping those in need.”
