Atlantic Natural Foods Donates $150,000 of Loma Linda Food to Hurricane Victims in the Southeast
NASHVILLE, N.C.–(BUSINESS WIRE)–Atlantic Natural Foods, LLC, (ANF) today announced it will provide relief to the great people of South Texas and Florida dealing with the tragedy and aftermath of Hurricanes Harvey and Irma. The leading producer of shelf-stable plant-based protein will be donating $150,000 of its iconic Loma Linda vegetarian products.
The Loma Linda brand has a long, rich history of providing vegetable based proteins to health-conscious individuals. The Seventh-day Adventist community has long been part of that history and is contributing to the current relief efforts by providing Atlantic Natural Foods with key distribution points in affected areas.
To undertake this initiative, Atlantic Natural Foods is partnering with Clark Distributing in Hendersonville, TN who is working closely with the Texas Conference leadership and Adventist Book Center (ABC) stores under the supervision of Manager Mickey Johnson for relief in the Texas area. They are working with Sunbelt Distributing of central Florida to assist the vegetarian community in South Florida and Puerto Rico.
As part of the effort, Clark Distributing is picking up the vegetarian food products destined to the impacted Texas and Florida regions. Music City Logistics Express in Lebanon, TN will be donating the transportation.
Additionally, Atlantic Natural Foods has sent its Loma Linda concession food truck to provide hot meals to those individuals impacted by hurricanes. Thousands of hot meals have already been served as they expect to distribute more than 20,000 meals throughout their relief efforts.
Atlantic Natural Food’s owners, management, employees and stakeholders are committed to helping people. “It’s part of our culture. We believe that we are accountable to higher powers and we should serve all people to the best of our ability in our daily life,” said Steve Morris, COO of Atlantic Natural Foods.
“Our thoughts and prayers are with everyone affected by the hurricanes, including the heroic emergency responders on the ground as they work to provide relief during this difficult time. Now that we have people on the ground we’re able to see the spirit of optimism that abounds in the South Texas communities and are happy to play a role in helping them rebuild,” added Morris.
