Since launching September 2017, PS Seasoning has donated and packaged meals that are then distributed to local and national food pantries. Every soup, oatmeal or pancake mix purchased from PS Seasoning provides six meals to a family in need. “We launched our buy one, donate six campaignless than two years ago and quickly grew our numbers due to the incredible support of our customers,” said President Joe Hanni. “We look forward to continuing to engage our staff, customers, and community in our mission to deliver nutrition to those in need.”
