Hunger often affects those who are most vulnerable, such as children, seniors, and veterans.
One in four Arizona children don’t have reliable access to nutritious and affordable foods. And for many of those children who depend on school meal programs, the end of the school year can mean three long months of wondering if they’ll have something to eat tomorrow.
Looking to help support local food banks and their various campaigns to end summer hunger, PGT Innovations’ Phoenix facility held its inaugural Storm Out Summer Hunger initiative.
Collection bins were placed throughout the facilities, and team members donated non-perishable snacks and meal items to provide meals to children who are out of school for the summer and also support the food bank in general.
The Phoenix location partnered with HonorHealth Desert Mission Food Bank in Phoenix, collecting 469 food items, weighing 533 pounds, as well as $120 in monetary donations.
Desert Mission serves the Phoenix community that is at or below the poverty level, assisting more than 10,500 households and 23,400 individuals a year. The food bank also provides 1,250 snack packs a week to Title 1 students who depend on school meal programs, so they have food for the weekend.
