We’ve all experienced hunger: craving a snack, wanting something salty or needing something crunchy. But there’s a big difference between satisfying a craving or stomach growl and wondering where your next meal will come from. Today according to experts, millions of children -- or one in five in the U.S. -- are at risk of hunger.
During National Hunger Action Month in September, C&S employees demonstrate their caring through a food drive to help kids: Collection bins and educational materials about childhood hunger are placed at each C&S facility. Employees are asked to open their cupboard and their hearts and donate child-friendly food such as canned tuna, peanut butter, macaroni & cheese, chili, canned stews and meats, soup, and personal care items such as soap and toothpaste.
For every pound of food donated by employees, C&S provides a $1 contribution to Feeding America, our premiere national nonprofit partner in the fight against hunger. Funds are invested in public awareness campaigns and in the BackPack Program.
National Hunger Action month is championed by Feeding America and C&S employees have held a food drive for kids since 2003. For more information visit: www.feedingamerica.org.
