Coalition of Steel Canned Food Companies Donates Food to Floridians Affected by Hurricane

The Canned Good Coalition, developed by steel food manufacturers and canned food companies, donated near 80,480 pounds of fruits, vegetables, and beans in steel cans to those that were affected by Hurricane Ian.

Food Bank Donation

Canned Good Coalition members reached out to Publix Super Markets and various food banks to provide wholesome, shelf-stable foods at a time when many Floridians were without food and electricity. Canned food companies that donated product include Bush Beans, McCall Farms, Pacific Coast Producers, Red Gold, and Seneca Foods.

The Canned Good Coalition of canned food companies and steel food packaging manufacturers, developed to promote the infinite recyclability and food waste abatement of the steel food can, teamed up with retailers, such as Publix, to raise awareness around inherent sustainability benefits of the steel food can.

“Providing canned foods to those in need is just one way that this coalition can do good,” said Sherrie Rosenblatt, executive director, Canned Good Coalition. “It helps that the steel food can is durable and easily and endlessly recyclable, keeping it out of landfills and creating less food waste.”
