"In addition to a financial grant, each organization will also receive product donations and provide volunteer opportunities for Snyder's-Lance associates," said Sid Levy, Senior Director of Communications and Community Relations for Snyder's-Lance. "These grants will have a direct impact on more than 100,000 lives."
