We Care About Feeding the World

December 20th 2016 Comments

Silva, as a dehydrated vegetable manufacturer, is proud to be a part of an industry that provides great-tasting, high-quality food products. Our commitment to food, though, goes far beyond what we do every day.

On December 10, 2016, Silva once again partnered with Feed My Starving Children, an organization that provides nutritionally complete meals for starving, malnourished, and hungry people around the world. There were 43 of us—Silva staff, families, and friends—that piled into a bus and headed to the Schaumburg Convention Center and spent four hours packing dehydrated meals to send around the world.

Along with the other groups who were a part of the FMSC event, we packed almost 300,000 meals! We had a great time together … and it was even better because we knew that these meals would make a real difference in people’s day-to-day lives. That’s the power of food.

Food is a basic necessity for human life. And the amazing thing is that, through the technology of dehydrated foods, more and more people are getting the nutrition they need.

Especially at this time of year, when we are celebrating the holidays with family and friends, we’re honored to partner with FMSC as they bring joy and hope to those who need it most around the world.
