Every cork counts to help stop hunger


While leftover wine corks may be a reminder of a memorable meal shared with family, now your cork can help bring a meal to those families in need. Gallo Family Vineyards is partnering with Meals On Wheels Association of America (MOWAA) to help feed American seniors and families in need this holiday season.

For each Gallo Family Vineyards wine cork collected between November 1 and December 31, 2010, Gallo Family Vineyards will donate $5 to aid in MOWAA's hunger relief efforts.

'One in nine seniors in the United States is at-risk of hunger,' said Enid Borden, President and CEO, Meals On Wheels Association of America. 'We are thrilled Gallo Family Vineyards shares our mission of putting an end to senior hunger and has found a simple way for everyone to get involved.'

A maximum of $25,000 will be donated to MOWAA. Cork(s) should be mailed to Corks to Fight Hunger Donation, P.O. Box 1154, Grand Rapids, MN 55745-1154. Participants are encouraged to use a padded or bubble envelope or tuf-pak to mail cork(s) with sufficient First Class postage. All corks must be postmarked between November 1, 2010 and December 31, 2010 and received by January 1, 2011.
