BOCA RATON, Fla., Sept. 1, 2020 /PRNewswire/ -- In honor of Hunger Action Month, Crockpot® today announced that it has made a donation to Feeding America® to help provide as many as 250,000 meals* to those who need it most. As millions of Americans continue to struggle with food insecurity and unemployment due to the pandemic, this donation will assist Feeding America in providing meals made with love to vulnerable households across the country.
"From families with multiple mouths to feed, to frontline workers, to those who have lost their jobs, we recognize that a home-cooked meal is a comfort that not all families are able to enjoy, especially right now," said Tim Anderson, Crockpot Director of Marketing. "At Crockpot, we want to bring people together through delicious food made with love. Our partnership with Feeding America is an example of how our core values can support an important issue many face. We're proud to be part of the fight to end hunger."
And, Crockpot wants its fans and followers to join them in working to relieve hunger in their local communities. By clicking through the brand's Feeding America banner, anyone can give a meal, which will be distributed through the organization's nationwide network of member food banks.
"Our network of local food banks work to deliver nourishment at the front line of hunger—one meal at a time," said Mamie Moore, Managing Director, Donor Partnership Communication at Feeding America. "As the need for food assistance increases daily during these challenging times, we're grateful for Crockpot's support and look forward to reaching and nourishing more tables nationwide."
The Feeding America donation follows Crockpot's brand refresh, which continues to champion togetherness and connection through moments, memories, and meals.
