Sun Valley Resort won the coveted “Golden Can” award in 2014… who will win this year?

Spring is quickly approaching, (especially with the 60 degree days) and that means it’s time for The Hunger Coalition to partner with local businesses for the Annual Spring Corporate Food Drive. Through March 20, 2015 the Sun Valley Resort, St. Luke’s Wood River Medical Center, Idaho Mountain Express, and Marketron will be competing to bring The Hunger Coalition non-perishable foods and financial contributions. The business that brings in the most donations will be awarded the coveted Golden Can Award!

With record numbers of people needing food assistance, and smack dab in the middle of the “Hunger Season”—where food and monetary donations plummet and warehouse shelves are left bare, the Spring Corporate Food Drive comes at a critical time for The Hunger Coalition.  Jeanne Liston, the Executive Director of the Hunger Coalition stated “We have more people receiving food assistance from us right now than ever before.  Recently, we had a record number of families come through our door in one day—85 families. We are shocked that we are still breaking records.”

You can also participate from the comfort of your own home.  Simply go online to www.thehungercoalition.org and make a financial contribution in the name of a participating business. Thanks to partnerships with local and statewide food distributors, your dollars are stretched over six times farther than if you were to purchase the food yourself!

The most needed food items include canned fruits or apple sauce, grains and rice, canned beans and meals (high protein, low sodium) and healthy snacks for kids.

Support local businesses and organizations through March 20th as they join together to bring wholesome food, welcome hope, and vital support services to families by participating in The Hunger Coalition’s Annual Spring Corporate Food Drive.

 

The Hunger Coalition strives to end hunger in our community by providing wholesome food to those in need and by promoting solutions to the underlying causes of hunger through collaboration, education and advocacy. For more information, visit www.thehungercoalition.org.
