Noyes Home of St. Joseph partners with Triumph Foods for Monthly Donation Program
St. Joseph, Mo.— May 29, 2018 — Triumph Foods is well known for taking an active role in the fight against food insecurity in the St. Joseph and Buchanan County areas. Whether it is a product or monetary contribution to a fund- raiser or function or their biannual bulk product donations to Second Harvest Community Food Bank, the Company strives offset need in the area. Since 1894, the Noyes Home has been a place where children facing a family crisis can feel safe, and can just be a child until his or her family is able to get back on their feet.
Today, two organizations’ paths have crossed.
This new partnership between Triumph Foods and the Noyes Home for Children aims to offset increasing food costs of the Noyes Home with a recurring monthly donation of fresh, high quality pork products to the non-profit organization.
“Noyes Home is thrilled to begin this partnership with Triumph Foods. Our kids frequently come to us having experienced hunger and malnutrition, this impacts their physical, emotional and social development.” Chelsea Howlett, Executive Director of the Noyes Home for Children states, “Children need balanced nutrition to be able to thrive and reach their fullest potentials. We are so grateful for donors like Triumph who ensure that our children’s most basic needs are met.”
“Triumph is very proud and excited to be a part of this new partnership with the Noyes Home. Since the Noyes Home does not receive any state or federal funding, this makes it very difficult on their bottom line.” said Chris Clark, Communications and Community Relations Manager for Triumph Foods. “We want to show our continued support and commitment to the betterment of this organization that does so much for our community, in the best way we know how.” Clark also raised a challenge to other area organizations to follow suit,“While the Noyes Home does receive a large amount of aid around the holidays, we wanted to help bridge that 11-month gap. We would love to see more companies and organizations in our area do the same.”

About Noyes Home for Children
For more than 120 years, the Noyes Home has been a place where a child who is facing a family crisis feels safe, and can just be a child, until the family is able to get back on its feet. The Noyes Home is a place where a family facing eviction or a job loss can talk about their next steps with professionals while their children are cared for with kindness and compassion — for a few days, or a couple of weeks, while they find a solution. It’s where a teen finds friendship, security and a positive environment to continue attending high school if a parent has become incarcerated or is unable to care for them.
