Meals on Wheels and Emergency Kitchen receive donations as food prices increase.

ANDERSON, S.C. – March 23, 2022 – Electrolux today announced that it donated $45,000 to Meals on Wheels – Anderson and the Anderson Emergency Kitchen to help feed those in need throughout the community as food prices dramatically increase.

According to the Consumer Price Index, food prices have increased 7.4 percent year over year and are expected to rise an additional two to three percent in 2022. Meals on Wheels received a $35,000 donation to purchase the fresh food it prepares for those in need.

Anderson Emergency Kitchen, a local soup kitchen, will use its $10,000 donation to purchase fresh fruit and vegetables. Electrolux will also donate one of its refrigerators proudly made in Anderson to help preserve this fresh produce longer. In addition, Electrolux employees are joining the effort by participating in a “Hoopin’ for Hunger” basketball competition during March Madness to raise additional funds for the soup kitchen.

“We are committed to being at the forefront of sustainability and to fighting hunger in our community alongside our strong community partners,” said Nolan Pike, head of Electrolux North America. “We are grateful for the opportunity to support our neighbors by providing access to food and fresh produce as food prices increase.”
