We do. And we’ve decided to do something about it.
Statistics showing the extend of child hunger in America are disturbing. But we don’t need statistics to tell the story. One of our founders was food insecure as a child. We know that it’s tough enough going to bed on an empty stomach. But waking up and going to school hungry sets a child back. It’s hard to learn and build friendships when hunger is constantly nagging.
So starting Thanksgiving Day, every case that we deliver during the holiday season, we will donate a meal to a food bank that provides nutritious meals to children. Our initial focus will be in Maine where we are based. We are ambitious and hope to create a permanent program to help chip away at this enormous nationwide program.
