SELBYVILLE, Del. — Mountaire Farms is partnering with hundreds of churches and non-profits in four states this December to provide complete meals for families in need for Christmas.
Each Mountaire Cares box can feed a family of four. They are stuffed with a plump Mountaire roaster chicken, canned corn, green beans, yams, cranberry sauce, mashed potatoes, and brownie mix for dessert.
On Delmarva, Mountaire’s annual Christmas for Thousands event will be held on Wednesday, December 21st, starting at 8 am. More than 150 volunteers will help pack 3,000 meal boxes – with enough food to feed 12,000 people. There will be no walk-ups for this event, as all boxes are already reserved for families, churches and non-profits.
In Siler City, NC, our Christmas for Thousands event will be held on Saturday, December 17th starting at 8 am. Boxes will be assembled and distributed to pre-registered groups at Chatham Charter School Campus, 2200 Hamp Stone Road in Siler City.

In Lumber Bridge, NC, our boxes will be assembled on site on Tuesday, December 20th, and employees will be packing boxes. Distribution will be held on Thursday, December 22nd, at the Lumberton Housing Authority.

“The need always seems greater during the holidays, and we are blessed to be able to do what we can to help families this time of year,” said J.R. LaPearl, Director of Mountaire Cares, the company’s charitable giving program. “What I love about these events is that it brings people together to share love and kindness to one another. That is what Christmas is all about.”
The Christmas event is part of the company’s Thanksgiving for Thousands program that also feeds people at Easter.
