BLN partnered with Feeding America again this year to help the hungry across the U.S. BLN employees, along with a company match, raised $4,600 to help feed the hungry. Feeding America can turn this donation into 46,000 meals to feed America’s most vulnerable population. Employees in every BLN office nationwide participated.
Feeding America is the nation’s largest domestic hunger-relief organization with a network of over 200 partner food banks across the country. They provide healthy, high-protein, and nutrient-rich meals to the food banks. In 2020 they helped provide four billion meals to those facing hunger. Healthy food is unavailable or inaccessible to over 38 million Americans. Additionally, 180 billion pounds of food are wasted each year through crop waste or uneaten food in restaurants, retailers, and homes. Feeding America connects this food with the people who need it most.
