Visit Saint Paul Donates 20 Turkeys to Neighborhood Food Shelf
1/3/2013
Representatives from Visit Saint Paul and Midwest Poultry Federation dropped nearly 300 pounds in frozen turkeys at Saint Paul's Neighborhood House food shelf to honor the longstanding relationship between the two organizations.

"Midwest Poultry Federation has been meeting in Saint Paul since 1999," said Karolyn Kirchgesler, President & CEO of Visit Saint Paul. "This donation in their name is a practical way to thank them for their continued business and to benefit local citizens in a time of need this holiday season."

Visit Saint Paul started this tradition in 2009 and has donated nearly 1,000 pounds of turkey to the Neighborhood House Food Shelf.

"We are honored that Visit Saint Paul has made this donation in our name for the third year in a row," said Lara Durben, Program Director for Midwest Poultry Federation. "Saint Paul has become a home for our annual convention and it is truly a pleasure to see local families in need benefit from this longstanding relationship."

Since 1999, Midwest Poultry Federation has brought more than 26,000 people to Saint Paul for their annual convention in March. The Midwest Poultry Federation (MPF) Convention is the largest regional poultry show in the U.S. In 2012, the convention drew nearly 2,100 participants from 36 states as well as Washington D.C., 4 Canadian provinces and several other international countries.
