500000 Meals Fed Childhood Hunger Milestone

Posted & filed under News.

SALT LAKE CITY June 19, 2018C.R. England, and England Logistics, have reached the half-way mark of their goal of donating one million meals for children in 2018.

The milestone was reached early Thursday morning, June 14 as part of the “One Initiative,” a campaign that invites company employees, customers, carriers, and freight agents to join the fight against childhood hunger.

C.R. England and England Logistics have implemented a donation structure that converts profits earned from any business service at either company into meals for children in need. For instance, for every load C.R. England delivers, they donate a meal to a food bank of the delivery driver’s choosing. Similarly, for every load that England Logistics brokers, a donation toward a meal is provided. The One initiative’s efforts are focused on food banks in communities where their employees live and work. Every donation leads directly to a food-insecure child receiving a meal.

Participating food banks include Utah Food Bank, Atlanta Community Food Bank, Blue Ridge Area Food Bank, Central Pennsylvania Food Bank, Community Food Bank (Fresno, CA), Feeding America Riverside/San Bernardino, Food Bank of Northwest Indiana, Food Bank of the Rockies, Gleaners Food Bank of Indiana, Gleaners Food Bank of Southeastern Michigan, Greater Chicago Food Depository, North Texas Food Bank, Oregon Food Bank, Regional Food Bank of Northeastern New York, Second Harvest Inland Northwest, Second Harvest of Southeast North Carolina, South Texas Food Bank, St. Mary’s Food Bank Alliance, and Virginia Peninsula Foodbank.

The One initiative is founded on the idea that through a united effort, a nationwide difference can be made to benefit children in need. For more information or to donate, visit www.oneagainstchildhoodhunger.com.
