Leap of Compassion

When NFL football kicks off this fall, Sargento Foods and the Green Bay Packers will once again help fight hunger. Through the "touchdowns for charity," program, Sargento will donate $1,000 to $2,000 to the Wisconsin Hunger Task Force each time the Pack scores a touchdown. During the 2005 season the program raised $167,000.

Kefir maker Lifeway Foods announced in June that it plans to execute a two-for-one split of its common stock. If it receives board approval, the company would amend its charter to increase the number of Lifeway common shares from 10 million to 20 million.
