Pilgrim’s to Invest $300,000 in Natchitoches to Support Local Community as Part of Hometown Strong Initiative

Building on its ongoing sustainability and social responsibility efforts, Pilgrim’s today announced plans to invest $300,000 in Natchitoches, La., to support the community’s future. Pilgrim’s has been working with local leaders to identify where the funds can best help meet immediate and longer-term community needs in three key areas: food insecurity, community infrastructure and well-being, and COVID-19 emergency response and relief efforts. One project has already been selected for funding. In partnership with the City of Natchitoches, Pilgrim’s is contributing $250,000 to continue developing and upgrading Parc Natchitoches. The Pilgrim’s investment will allow the city to move forward with expansion plans to include covered pavilions, a dog park, walking/biking trails and a kid’s discovery park. “Through the Hometown Strong program, we are demonstrating our strong commitment to Natchitoches, and we’re excited for the opportunity to make a difference,” said Mark Haecker, Pilgrim’s Natchitoches complex manager. “Our investment in Parc Natchitoches will provide multiple recreation activities and improve the quality of life for members of our community.”
