In 2012 alone, Pulmuone Foods USA has already donated 140,000 pounds of food to Second Harvest Food Bank from their state of the art manufacturing facility in Gilroy. Pulmuone CEO, Dr. Young Chul Kang, places great importance on the notion of "One Firm Spirit." This encompasses their dedication to company values (trust, integrity, solidarity and openness) and giving back to the communities in which they serve. Pulmuone Foods USA knew of Second Harvest's successful track record of distributing food to people in need through a vast network of community partners and selected the Food Bank to ensure the donations would be distributed under safe conditions to reach families quickly.

"We've been partnering with food banks since 2007 and are proud to serve the communities in which we operate," says Barbara Moreno, VP of Brand Management. "It has been very rewarding knowing that we are doing our part in the fight against hunger. As part of our values and our continued efforts toward sustainability, we plan to continue to support the community. We recognize that there is still more work to be done and we look forward to partnering with Second Harvest Food Bank further in the future."

Pulmuone Foods USA only provides foods they would serve to their own children, which makes us proud to make their meals available for our families. By both distributing healthy food and educating our clients about the importance of a balanced diet, we hope to change the health landscape of our community. Thank you, Pulmuone Foods USA, for making it possible!
