HANOVER, Pa. , June 08 /Businesswire/ - The Rice Family Foundation was established in 2017 by Michael & Jane Rice and Dylan & Stacie Lissette, third and fourth-generation members of the Utz Brands, Inc. snack foods family. The Foundation was created to provide leadership and support for families' education, health, and well-being in Hanover, Pennsylvania, and surrounding communities.

Using funds granted by the Foundation, The Rice Family Foundation supports eligible local area non-profit organizations that dedicate their time, efforts, and resources to foster a better community. This is made possible based on philanthropic commitments from the Rice and Lissette families.

These organizations, such as the Visiting Nurse Association or VNA of Hanover & Spring Grove, offer home health and hospice care, to the Children’s Home of York, an organization dedicated to empowering children and helping them to thrive while strengthening families, to the Salvation Army, who support those less fortunate and in need of help.
