Pepperidge Farm’s factory near Denver is giving away thousands of bags of Goldfish crackers.

On Saturday, Jan. 9, Reamstown Fire Co. will give the snacks away at New Holland Transport, 340 S. Muddy Creek Road, Denver.

The local factory donated Goldfish in several flavors: pizza, explosive pizza, cheddar and cheddar colors.

“There is no limit to the amount you may take,” the fire company shared on Facebook.

Annually, the bakery makes 60 million pounds of goldfish crackers, says Samantha Cohen, associate manager, sales communications for Campbell's.

At the beginning of the pandemic, Pepperidge Farm gave the fire company bread and Goldfish crackers to distribute locally, says Kelly Morgan, assistant fire chief. The donations continued through summer and paused until a few weeks ago.

The factory has donated nearly 8,000 cases of goldfish to the fire company, Garden Spot Fire Rescue in New Holland as well as Central Pennsylvania Food Bank and Philabundance, Cohen says. 

Saturday's snack giveaway will start at 10 a.m. and is first-come, first-serve at the back of the building. Look for the fire truck, which will be parked at the warehouse where snacks will be distributed.
