From COVID-19, to inflation, to Climate Change impact and food supply disruption, this year is closing on a challenging note for folks and families who face food-insecurity.
Starting November 30th until December 11th, follow us at @QuestFoodExchange and be part of #12DaysofQuest as we move through 12 food groups we’re hoping to secure, month-to-month, across Quest grocery markets in 2022. Today’s feature food is:
Have you ever wondered why you eat chicken? Is it only to meet your protein requirements? By eating just one small chicken breast, you not only get 23 grams of protein but also other vitamins and nutrients such as omega-6 fatty acids that help to strengthen the immune system and generally give more energy. Chicken has long been considered a healthy alternative to red meat as it is low in saturated fat, making it a popular addition to a healthy diet.
The Quest Difference
The challenge with chicken is that we barely have enough in our coolers. So much of our food is donated, which means we can’t always guarantee the same volumes or types of variety week to week. We would love for our clients to have more choices than just breaded chicken, which we usually get as chicken breast or drumsticks are rarely found in any of our markets.
Quest considers chicken a staple item that we need to have consistently on our market shelves. That’s why whenever we have chicken in stock, we sell it for half of its original price to make sure our clients can afford it.
Help ensure Quest Clients have access to chicken and other critical grocery items 12 months of the year. Donate to Quest today! And stay tuned for Day 12 of #12DaysofQuest for our last conversation.
