Food, Monetary Donations From Dean Foods Operations Coast-to-Coast Earn "Mission Partner" Status From Feeding America®


DALLAS, Nov. 28, 2011 /PRNewswire/ -- At a time of year when hunger is in the spotlight, Dean Foods (NYSE: DF), a leading provider of wholesome, nutritious dairy products in the United States, is proud to be recognized for its efforts to fight hunger by being named a national Mission Partner by Feeding America. Since 2008, Dallas-based Dean Foods donated nearly 40 million pounds of food and dairy products, hundreds of thousands of dollars and countless hours of volunteerism to fight hunger in communities with Dean Foods operations.

The company's Fresh Dairy Direct- Morningstar segment is the largest U.S. processor and distributor of milk, creamers, and cultured dairy products marketed under more than 50 local and regional dairy brands, as well as through private labels. The WhiteWave segment produces and sells an array of branded dairy, soy and plant-based beverages and foods, including Silk® soy, almond and coconut milk, Horizon Organic® milk and dairy products, International Delight® coffee creamers, and LAND O LAKES® creamers.

Feeding America is the nation's leading domestic hunger-relief charity with a nationwide network of member food banks.

According to Feeding America, in 2010 alone, Dean Foods donated more than 12 million pounds of food that served more than 20,000 charities throughout 32 states across the Feeding America network. Below are just a few of those stories.

Dean Foods Support in Local Communities

Community Food Share , Boulder, Colo.

"The impact WhiteWave has had on our ability to fulfill our mission is significant, real and lasting," said James Baldwin, CEO, Community Food Share. For decades, WhiteWave has helped Community Food Share in its mission to ensure that the people of Boulder and Broomfield counties have access to nutritious food. This has included unique sponsorships, milk and other product donations, and a $250,000 grant to support a new warehouse, allowing the food bank to serve more people.

Each year, Colorado employees participate in the Community Food Share's Compete to Beat Hunger Corporate Challenge. In 2011, 99.5 percent of WhiteWave's Colorado-based employees donated to the Corporate Challenge, and with the company matching their donations dollar for dollar, raised enough money to provide more than 463,000 meals to local people in need.

Blaine McPeak, President of WhiteWave Foods, puts the efforts into perspective. "As a food company, focusing efforts on eliminating hunger is an obvious match with our mission and vision as a company. But more importantly, it's the right fit in the hearts and minds of our employees."
