1 out of every 10 people in Massachusetts may not know where their next meal will come from. This includes a neighbor or child that we never even realized struggle with hunger. Thankfully, there are Hunger Heroes in the world that are changing that!
Recently, Johnson & Johnson dedicated October 12th as a Day of Caring for their company. To celebrate, one office partnered with Feeding Children Everywhere to host their own meal packaging event. During this Hunger Project, they packaged thousands of healthy Italian Veggie Pasta meals that would be distributed to local organizations in Massachusetts. Our Daily Bread Soup Kitchen and Shane Gives Thanks picked up about 30,000 delicious meals for those they serve.
Engage and Empower
At Feeding Children Everywhere, we offer a unique volunteer experience that also engages and empowers employees. This is an experience they’ll love to share with coworkers and friends. Engaging in volunteer events brings teams together to increase bonds and sharpen communication skills. Some companies, like Johnson & Johnson, even made this meal packaging event a competition amongst the teams. This way, they can foster new relationships and connections with other coworkers, allowing for better workflow back at work.
