Ultradent Products, Inc. set a new record for its annual “Hunger Games”– themed food drive this year, raising 352,088 pounds of food for the Utah Food Bank and Typhoon Haiyan victims through AmeriCares.

Ultradent set its 2013 goal at 200,000 pounds of food. The donation translates to $87,659 in total, and over $43,000 for each organization. Each year, Ultradent employees have consistently increased the amount of food/money raised during its annual food drive, and this year is no exception, as Ultradent increased its donation amount by 65%.

Ultradent raised 208,000 pounds of food during its 2012 food drive, and 85,000 pounds of food in 2011.

Donations for Ultradent’s 2013 food drive were raised through numerous opportunity drawings, bake sales, and a “Food Truck Friday” event, organized by company employees.

Ultradent presented a check for $43,835 to the CEO of the Utah Food Bank on Tuesday, Dec. 3, 2013, and will present the other half of funds raised to AmeriCares later this month. Dr. Fischer, Ultradent’s president and CEO, attributes his enthusiasm for the food drive to lessons he learned as a young boy.

“My grandfather taught me as a young boy that it is only with an open hand that one has the ability to receive,” he said.
