Clewiston, FL – The people of U.S. Sugar announced today they will be providing more than 6,000 crates of Florida-grown Glades sweet corn to families across Southwest and South Florida starting tomorrow in cooperation with Duda Farm Fresh Foods and Cheney Brothers. The recently harvested sweet corn was grown by U.S. Sugar farmers, packaged by Duda and will be delivered by Duda Farm Fresh Foods and Cheney Brothers.

“As Americans are struggling to find food during the COVID-19 pandemic, the people of U.S. Sugar are answering the call to provide food for local families,” said Judy Sanchez, Senior Director for Corporate Communications and Public Affairs. “Neighbors feeding neighbors is what farming is all about, and our focus will remain on growing and harvesting safe, locally produced food crops for our families and yours during this crisis.”

Since the start of the global COVID-19 pandemic, the people of U.S. Sugar have also provided hand sanitizer and N95 masks for healthcare employees and first responders, green beans for area churches and food banks, and hot meals for the people of South Bay, Belle Glade, and Pahokee. Additionally, U.S. Sugar recently provided more than 250 of its employees with nearly 2,000 pounds of meat thanks to a generous donation from its CEO, Robert Buker, Jr.
