Feed The Children

Together we can make a difference and that’s exactly what the family at Garrett Popcorn Shops® and the team at American Airlines just accomplished last week. Garrett Popcorn in partnership with American Airlines, donated 100% of profits from on-board purchases made from June 5 – June 30. Thanks to the support of our customers, Garrett Popcorn Shops® will donate $25,000 to Feed the Children, headquartered near Oklahoma City, to support the families affected by the storms. Additionally, Garrett Popcorn gave 5,000 bags of The Chicago Mix to Feed the Children that were distributed throughout the communities to treat the families both in body and spirit.

“The recent Oklahoma tornadoes were incredibly personal to the team at Feed The Children, and we are committed to the long-term recovery efforts for all of those affected,” said Erin Engelke, VP of PR and Communications for Feed The Children. “We are extremely grateful to Garrett Popcorn Shops for their support of our work and for their generous donation, which will ultimately ensure our mission is fulfilled.”

“Garrett Popcorn Shops® is committed to making a difference in the community. It is our hope that The Chicago Mix will brighten their day and their spirits. It is wonderful to partner with organizations like Feed The Children and companies like American Airlines to help provide some relief.” Megan Chody, Community Relations Director for Garrett Popcorn Shops.
