Jon’s Extra Mile for Second Harvest Food Bank

Blog ,

Sending in the Pinch Hitter

Thanks to everyone who has been participating in our 2019 Summer Food Drive, we’ve raised more than 415,000 meals for Second Harvest Food Bank this summer, and we’re on track to pass the total we raised last year.

Every dollar raised for the food bank can be used to provide at least seven meals to kids in need. How does that work? Through their partnerships with grocery retailers and the USDA, the food bank is able to source nutritious food, including fresh meat, dairy, fruits and vegetables. The food bank’s culinary program uses some of the ingredients to prepare hot meals, and they are distributed along with fresh food to local pantries, summer feeding locations and soup kitchens across 18 counties.

Our goal for 2019 is to raise half a million meals, and we’re looking for that last boost to get us to the goal by July 31.

It’s time for Jon to step in! We’re offering him up for auction to help us reach our goal. The winner of the auction will have Jon all to yourself at your corporate office or chosen property for one day! Jon has maintenance skills, salesmanship skills, and a wealth of industry knowledge and experience, and we’re happy to share him with you for a day.
