MINNEAPOLIS, MN, Dec. 11, 2012 /PRNewswire/ - Canadian Pacific (TSX:CP)(NYSE:CP) formally confirmed its commitment to supporting efforts surrounding Hurricane Sandy with the presentation of a $250,000 check to the national food distribution organization Feeding America. The ceremony took place at the Canadian Pacific Holiday Train's Minneapolis stop on Tuesday evening.

On November 14th, CP announced a $1 million donation to various established charities to help Hurricane Sandy victims, which included a match of monetary donations made at any of the Holiday Train fundraising events of $250,000 directly to Feeding America.

"As hunger continues to impact our friends and neighbors across this country, Canadian Pacific takes pride in its support of Feeding America as the group takes a leading role in helping to feed the less fortunate still caught in the aftermath of Hurricane Sandy," said Doug McFarlane, CP's senior vice president of U.S. operations. "As our own Holiday Train makes its 14th trip across North America raising food, money, and awareness for community food shelves, we're proud to partner with an organization that's doing so much good for those in need."

Yvonne Douge, Feeding America's director, corporate partnerships, accepted the $250,000 check on behalf of the organization.

"This donation by Canadian Pacific will provide over two million meals to help feed thousands of Americans who might otherwise go hungry due to disasters like Hurricane Sandy," Douge said. "The Holiday Train program is a great example of how companies and nonprofits can work together to help those in need. Feeding America is grateful to Canadian Pacific for this generous donation."

Feeding America member food banks are continuing to provide food and other supplies to those affected by Hurricane Sandy. Feeding America also provides specialized disaster training for its food banks around the country, ensuring a prepared network and seamless disaster response.
