It’s that time of year again folks! September is dedicated to Hunger Action Month. Food Bank for New York City is celebrating it’s 10th annual Go Orange to End Hunger Relief! We are happy to say that we have partnered up for the last 4 years with NYC Food Bank in our social mission to end child hunger in the U.S.
On September 17th, specifically, the SuperTeam will join New York in volunteering and donating to this great cause! It is so important to us to give back to our community and our country that we strongly believe in- and every little bit counts. It feels super rewarding to be able to be a part of something that is constantly making strides to better the the overall community. We are thrilled to grow our partnerships across the country and commit ourselves to continue this growth as we make and distribute more MySuperFoods products.
So now, here is our Call to Action from our Followers!! There are so many ways that one can donate to their community- even the smallest ways count. Just a donation of $1 to NYC Food Bank can provide for 5 meals. Not only does NYCFoodBank dedicate a day within the month to “GoOrange,” but Feeding America does as well! On September 3rd, Feeding America asks for support in joining to end world hunger. As part of our commitment, we would like to pay it forward and keep the good deeds going!
