FAYETTEVILLE — Deli Star Corp. supported local organizations last year by donating deli meat to make approximately 336,000 sandwiches, an amount equal to nearly $220,000 in donated product, the company announced.
The investment in the regional community took the form of 84,000 pounds of cooked meat such as smoked honey ham, oven-cured chicken breast, turkey breast, slow-cooked pastrami, bologna, roast beef, and Angus beef meatloaf to various organizations across the region, including: Operation Food Search; Mary, Mother of the Church in St. Louis; U.S. Marshals Service, Southern District of Illinois; Children for Christ in St. Louis; East St. Louis Grade School in East St. Louis; and Althoff Catholic High School in Belleville.
“As stewards to the Southern Illinois and the Greater St. Louis areas, we are proud to support our local and regional churches, schools, food banks and charities as they work very hard to assemble meals and sandwiches for the hungry,” says Justin Siegel, president of Deli Star. “We see the members of our community as if they are part of our family. We recognize that it is our Purpose at Deli Star to provide the safest, highest quality, best tasting protein to the world, and that doesn’t stop with those who are fortunate enough to afford it.”
Deli Star Corp. produces cooked meats for sandwich makers, salad makers and food service operators around the country.
