GFS Food Services is proud to support Food Finders in Southern California with their annual frozen turkey drive. Every year, Americans eat over 46 million turkeys over the Thanksgiving holiday, but not everyone has the good fortune to enjoy all the trimmings in a home of their own.

Food Finders’ Food Rescue Program ensures millions of pounds of wholesome foods helps feed people – not landfills – with the ability to scale and rescue enough food for 30,000 meals per day.

GFS prides itself on enabling our customers to scale – both in the non-profit and traditional food grade logistics world – whether its being moved on our trucks and vans or stored and fulfilled from our freezers, refrigerators or ambient temp food grade warehousing facilities.

“Food Finders is so grateful, not only for the ongoing donor partnership with GFS, but for the extra special help in storing some of our surplus food as we prepare to help feed thousands of families and provide special food for the holidays. It’s a kindness that makes a huge difference, and the savings in storage fees means we can afford additional food to meet the increased need this year.” – Patti Larson, Grants & Marketing Manager, Food Finders
