2024 IPPE makes donation

Over $30,000 was donated to an Atlanta area food bank.

In a bid to combat hunger, the 2024 International Production & Processing Expo (IPPE) successfully raised $33,314 for the Atlanta Community Food Bank through its ‘Giving Back to Atlanta’ campaign. The generous donation included $14,500 from IPPE, Hawkins Inc., and WATT Global Media, along with additional contributions of $4,824 from Expo Auctions and $2,160 from B and B Glass Studio/The Glass House. IPPE attendees also played a significant role, contributing $11,830 individually.

Kyle Waide, president and CEO of Atlanta Community Food Bank, expressed gratitude, stating, "The support from IPPE, attendees, and exhibitors will provide over 100,000 meals to families facing food insecurity in metro Atlanta and North Georgia."

IPPE's 'Giving Back to Atlanta' campaign, initiated in 2016, has now amassed a total donation of over $213,000 for the Atlanta Community Food Bank. The event organizers extended their thanks to exhibitors and attendees for their continuous contributions to alleviate hunger in Atlanta.

Despite progress in production, efficiency and genetic advancements in the feed, meat, poultry and egg industries, hunger remains a persistent issue. In the United States, one in seven Americans, including an estimated 755,000 people in metro Atlanta, relies on food pantries and meal service programs each year.

IPPE, sponsored by the U.S. Poultry & Egg Association (USPOULTRY), American Feed Industry Association (AFIA) and the Meat Institute, stands as the world's largest annual event for the animal food, meat, poultry, and egg industry.
