Lamb Weston Donation

Lamb Weston employees present a check for $5,000 to Agape House director Cathy Putnam, center.

Boardman East Lamb Weston recently donated $5,000 to the Agape House in Hermiston.

The money will help support the nonprofit’s food program, which distributes emergency boxes of food to families and individuals in need.

According to a news release from Agape House, the $5,000 came from the Boardman East plant’s recent win in a company-sponsored Lamb Weston Sustainability Award. The company reported the plant reduced its annual water usage by 35.6 million gallons.

“This money will help strengthen our mission of providing food boxes for families and weekend food backpacks for children,” Cathy Putnam, interim director of Eastern Oregon Mission, said in a statement. “Lamb Weston is one of the many business partners we have in the community who enable us to reach as many people as we do.”
