Hershey Company employees rising against hunger


Employees of The Hershey Company participated in the annual Rise Against Hunger campaign.

Hundreds of workers filled Giant Center on Wednesday. This is the fifth year for the event. 

Hundreds of thousands of meals were packed for families in need, all in less than three hours. 

“These meals, we’re packing an entire shipping container of them, 285,000, and they are going to El Salvador to help kids in need there,” said Katrina Briddell of The Hershey Company. 

Each package feeds four people. 

Over the last five years, the employees have packaged more than a million meals.
