IMMOKALEE, FL (NOVEMBER 14, 2023) – This fall, Lipman Family Farms BB #:110471 participated in its fourth annual company-wide day of service, aptly named “Day of Good”, where Lipman locations across North America unite as ONE LIPMAN to devote their time to serving their communities.

Just last month, the company celebrated a tremendous milestone, more than tripling its goal of donating 75,000 meals in honor of its 75th company anniversary. Last week, the events continued as more than 20 community projects were planned throughout Lipman locations in North America, with a focus on their three philanthropic pillars: education, children, and hunger relief.

“Lipman dedicates this day annually to give back to the communities that have supported us over the last 75 years,” reflected Elyse Lipman, CEO, Lipman Family Farms. “Our role as farmers and providers of fresh foods is very humbling, and we acknowledge it as being a living part of every community we operate in, feeding families across the continent every day of the year.”

Lipman Family Farms’ Day of Good activities included:

They got to enjoy popcorn, soda, and candy with the volunteers. Meanwhile, the team in Poncitlán, Jalisco, México donated goods needed to an organization that supports elderly and an orphanage.

“We’re grateful for the success of our turkey drive during Lipman’s fourth Day of Giving.,” said Susie Cerezo, Phoenix Community Champion, Lipman Family Farms. “The teams in Phoenix and Nogales were able to donate more than 450 turkeys for the people of our Arizona communities to be able to have a Thanksgiving meal of sustenance.”
