DANVERS, Mass., Nov. 29, 2012 /CNW/ - High Liner Foods (TSX: HLF), the leading value-added seafood supplier in North America, has donated the equivalent of 160,000 meals to families who continue to be affected by the aftermath of Hurricane Sandy. The company has donated thousands of pounds of frozen seafood products from across High Liner’s retail and foodservice businesses to the Food Bank of South Jersey (FBSJ) to assist with relief efforts. FBSJ has experienced an increased call for food due to Hurricane Sandy, plus a reduction in its federal food allotment, making donations all the more critical.
