Right now, the need for Food Banks and food stability in America is greater than ever. According to Feeding America, “From the beginning of March through the end of June, food banks nationwide distributed more than 1.9 billion meals to people facing hunger in the United States. In March alone, food banks gave out 20 percent more food than an average month.”
Fighting hunger continues to be a cause that is very important to us here at Route. Here are 3 ways we will continue to support and promote Feeding America’s mission to end hunger.
1. Monthly corporate donation
We contribute to Feeding America’s Response Fund with a recurring monthly donation. This donation supplies 1,000 meals or more to those facing hunger right now.
2. Encourage shippers and carriers to donate though email
Our team emails thousands of shippers and carriers every month for business. This is a great opportunity to raise awareness and encourage donations for Feeding America.
You may have seen an email from one of us with this blurb in our email signature: “Help us fight hunger. Donate to Feeding America’s Response Fund here.”
3. Build Awareness for hunger on our digital platforms
We will continue to promote Feeding America’s initiatives, articles, and posts on our website blog and social media pages.
