Part of Volkert’s company mission is to serve our communities, specifically by providing food, clothing, and shelter for our neighbors.
The ongoing COVID-19 pandemic has negatively impacted the lives of most Americans. Feeding America—a U.S. organization that provides food to those in need through a nationwide network of food banks—estimates that 50 million people may face hunger this year, including more than 17 million children.
Seeing this tremendous need, Volkert leaders introduced Feeding Our Communities Month, a Feeding America fundraising campaign.
During the month of January, our employees were encouraged to give to Feeding America and Volkert provided a dollar-for-dollar match of all donations.
We are excited to share that this month-long initiative raised $34,704.
Feeding America will use those funds to support its network of 200 food banks and get nourishing food—from farmers, manufacturers, and retailers—to people who need it.
It’s estimated that Volkert’s Feeding Our Communities Month will provide 347,040 meals.
