A Detroit company beefed up food pantries across the city with a tractor-trailer full of donations on Friday.

EW Grobbel donated 1,100 cases of frozen corned beef to the Oak Park site for Forgotten Harvest, a nonprofit aimed at donating and growing food for Metro Detroit families.

The 40,000-pound donation comes as food insecurity in Metro Detroit surges above precedented holiday rushes and inflation strains residents reeling from cuts to the Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program earlier this year.

“When we heard that demand was rising for food among Metro Detroiters, we knew we had to help,” Jason Grobbel, president of EW Grobbel, said in a statement Friday. “As a business that has been in this community for 140 years, we know how our impactful our products can be to our neighbors, especially those in need.”
