Feeding Families Across America Regonizes U.S.Sugar!
The people of U.S Sugar are providing more than 50 senior citizens at West County Senior Center with a free box of locally sourced fresh produce.
“We are a farming company built around the core concepts of growing food and taking care of our community,” said Brannan Thomas, Community Relations Manager for U.S. Sugar. “We will continue to help provide for our neighbors and persevere as we get through this pandemic together.” 
Since the start of the pandemic, U.S. Sugar has distributed thousands of boxes of fresh produce to seniors around the lake.
Gift boxes have contained pantry staples as well as fresh produce grown by local farmers.
The people of U.S Sugar, in partnership with local farms, pack the food boxes and distribute them to those in need throughout their home communities. 
Triple the students, double the fun, and half the price!
