As part of the Meat Industry Management Conference, the Meat Institute celebrated its 25-year partnership with Feeding America with a "backpack stuffing" event to provide food to hungry school-age children in the San Diego area. Conference attendees and NAMI staff filled more than 1000 bags of food in less than two hours. All totaled, food banks in the Feeding America network have received an estimated 200 million pounds of surplus meat and poultry from Institute members during the last 25 years.
