At Didion, we are committed to investing in the communities in which our teams work and live. That’s why, throughout September, we organized a food drive to help those in need, benefitting the Cambria Bread Basket Food Pantry, Green Lake County Food Pantry, Beaver Dam Community Food Pantry, and Sun Prairie Emergency Food Pantry.
Our team rallied together to collect donations of food and toiletry items and as a result, we gathered over 700 pounds of essential items to help those who rely on local resources to help feed their families.
“Green Lake County Food Pantry would like to thank all that participated in the recent Food Pantry Drive at Didion,” said Jenni Piontkowski, Food Pantry Coordinator. “Altogether, they were able to donate 163 pounds of much needed food, personal hygiene, and baby products! In addition, they donated $60.00 for the Food Pantry to purchase other items needed.”
Food insecurity is a critical issue facing many communities, and this food drive allowed us to make a meaningful contribution to fight hunger within our communities.
Didion is strongly rooted in the local community. For fifty years, Didion has supported various area efforts such as blood drives, flu clinics, school supply drives, Kiwanis programs, Habitat for Humanity, emergency services and first responders, among others. The Didion team, over 250 strong, shares our vision to positively impact the world. We pride ourselves on a culture that encourages collaboration, rewards hard work, and supports each team member’s personal journey on and off the Didion campus.
Didion, headquartered in Sun Prairie, Wisconsin, founded fifty years ago, produces quality food and alcohol-based products and is home to North America’s newest, most advanced dry corn mill and ethanol/alcohol facility in Cambria, Wisconsin. Didion uses a proprietary milling process to capture only the highest quality corn kernels for food processing and designs customized products that can meet specific customer needs from top grocery and food service brands. The rest of the corn kernel is used to produce alcohol-based products, such as hand sanitizer. In addition to corn flours, grits, meals, pregelatinized ingredients, and whole grains, Didion makes over 350 million corn- and soy-based meals each year for the USAID program through the USDA. These meals help to fight global hunger in four dozen developing nations. To learn more about Didion, visit didioninc.com.
