MELVILLE, N.Y., Nov. 16, 2011 /PRNewswire/ -- On Thanksgiving Day, Thursday, November 24, from 10:30 AM to 11:30 AM at 227 Bowery, Irwin D. Simon, the Founder, President & CEO of The Hain Celestial Group, Inc. (NASDAQ:  HAIN), and his family will bring holiday cheer to some of the 5,000 people expected to receive a meal from The Bowery Mission.  Hain Celestial is a major contributor to the Mission's meals to homeless, hungry and lonely New Yorkers.  Hain Pure Protein Corporation, its affiliate, is contributing 200 vegetarian-fed turkeys that were raised without antibiotics and on local family farms, and Hain Celestial's Terra® brand, known for its 100% natural exotic vegetable chips, is contributing 2,000 pounds of sweet potatoes.  Hain Celestial is also donating other food items to help provide a complete meal for Thanksgiving Day.

"As the leader of one of the nation's top natural and organic food companies, I have made it my personal mission to do what I can to see that no one goes hungry – especially children," said Irwin Simon.  "I am thankful that Hain Celestial and my family are able to assist The Bowery Mission in this way."  The Simon family will be among nearly 700 volunteers who will prepare traditional turkey dinners and serve guests in the century-old Bowery Mission chapel, decorated for the occasion.

On February 14, 2012, Irwin Simon will be honored at The Bowery Mission's 13th Annual Valentine Gala alongside Christina Minardi, President of the Northeast Region for Whole Foods Market, Inc. (NASDAQ: WFM) for their contributions to The Bowery Mission.
