As bread items were rated the top side dishes of any holiday meal according to a survey by Grain Foods Foundation, huge partners in making these meals complete were Bimbo Bakeries USA for donating the stuffing, Martin’s Famous Pastry Shoppe for providing the dinner rolls, and McKee Foods for provided mini muffins for the children’s goodie bags.

“It’s very rewarding to be able to be a part of Operation Blessing each year in an effort to feed our local families. We are so proud to have members such as Bimbo Bakeries, Martin’s Famous Pastry Shoppe, and McKee Foods who contribute their delicious products to make these meals complete,” said ABA President & CEO Robb MacKie.
