To help address the food security problem in the communities it serves, Allied Universal announced today that it has donated more than 310,000 meals to the following nine food banks: Second Harvest Food Bank of Orange County, Food Bank of New York City, Greater Chicago Food Depository, PhilAbundance, Sacramento Food Bank & Family Services, Gleaners Food Bank of Detroit, East Texas Food Bank, Second Harvest Food Bank of Central Florida and the Greater Food Bank of Boston.
“The statistics are staggering as one in every six Americans are at risk of starvation and, during these challenging times, more and more people, especially seniors and children, are facing hunger,” said Steve Jones, chairman and CEO at Allied Universal. “Coming together to support these food banks is essential right now.”
This contribution will support each organization's on-going emergency response efforts to combat food insecurity for families who have been impacted by COVID-19.
“I’m truly proud of all our employees who went above and beyond for this worthy cause by virtually donating to our first company food drive,” said Don Teftt, chief human resources officer for Allied Universal. “In times of crisis, it is more important than ever that we continue to lend a helping hand.”
