We’ve been working closely with a terrific food pantry that serves people in and around Greenwich, Connecticut on a CASE STUDY to see what happens when groups begin to organize #GiveHealthy food drives. The short answer: WOW!
WOW! means they raise more food, they raise healthy food and have alot of fun doing it. For Neighbor to Neighbor, besides getting lots of fresh produce and other healthy food, they get to know the people making those donations! 85% of the people making a #GiveHealthy donation were new donors! (or, if they had donated canned goods before, Neighbor to Neighbor had no way to know that).
At Amp – we’re constantly looking for ways to help in more ways than one – its what we talk about and what we know we are designed to do. It’s great to have strong data that backs up what we tell people!
Summer fun for us means delivering lots of Healthy Food!
This is what healthy food looks like!
It’s a sad fact that most hunger organizations struggle in the summer months to keep up with demand. Few organizations sponsor food drives during the summer and the number of people needing support actually rises – mostly due to kids who don’t have access to school feeding programs when school is not in session.
Our Crowd-Feeding platform makes organizing a food drive a breeze – easy to set up and easy to make a donation of healthy food. You can set up a drive from anywhere – the beach, the mountains, pool side or anywhere else you might find yourself. Doing something to help others will help to Amp Up your summer fun!
Here are a few places we’ve been having our own version of summer fun:
Let us know if you would like to join our kind of party!
If you’re like many, you probably made a food donation to a food drive these past holidays. Chances are you donated some type of canned food because traditional food drives are limited to non-perishable items. With our Crowd-Feeding system, no matter when you make a food donation, you can donate fresh fruits and vegetables and lots of other healthy food.
Why Does It Matter?
People struggling with hunger also struggle with diet related health issues – diabetes, obesity, hypertension & others due to lack of access to healthy food!
What Can You Do?
If your group (your company, your church, your school, etc.) sponsors food drives – let them know there’s a way to raise the kind of food people facing hunger really need. There’s no cost to use Crowd-Feeding system and it fun!
If your connected to a hunger organization – a food pantry, soup kitchen, shelter or food bank – let them know about us. We’ll ensure they get what they need.
