PORTLAND, OR (KPTV) -

In preparation for Thanksgiving, Foster Farms donated 640 turkeys to the Oregon Food Bank.

Semi-trucks unloaded more than 10,000 pounds of turkey to the warehouse Tuesday morning. 

Foster Farms continued their tradition of donating turkeys to west coast food banks during the holidays. The Oregon Food Bank is one of eight food banks receiving Foster Farms holiday turkey donations this year.    

Company officials say the donation goes beyond. 

"It makes me feel very proud to be part of a company that takes these type of initiatives to deal with the local community that support us also," said Robert Schmidig, who is with Foster Farms. 

Foster Farms is donating more than 4,200 turkeys across the region to help serve more than 70,000 holiday meals. 

The turkeys will be distributed in the coming week to Oregon Food Bank partner agencies to help feed families this Thanksgiving.
