Employees raise $40,000 for Feeding America

March 9, 2022

Part of Volkert’s company mission is to serve our communities, specifically by providing food, clothing, and shelter for our neighbors in need.

The ongoing COVID-19 pandemic has created an increased need for food bank services. In 2020, over 60 million Americans turned to food banks and community programs for help putting food on the table.

Given the great need, we are excited to share this recap of Volkert’s 2nd Annual Feeding Our Communities Month.

During the month of January 2022, Volkert employees raised a total of $20,000 for Feeding America, meeting our employee donation goal!

Volkert matched every employee donation dollar for dollar, bringing the campaign’s total to $40,000.

“I am very proud of the impact we’ll make through this initiative,” says Chairman of the Board David Allsbrook. “We came together for the common goal of serving those in our communities who are hungry. This $40,000 will help Feeding America fund and support local food banks. Thank you to everyone who participated!”

Feeding America is a nationwide network of 200 food banks and 60,000 local food pantries. Every $1 donated to Feeding America provides at least 10 meals.

That means that Volkert’s Feeding Our Communities Month will provide at least 400,000 meals for those in need!
