SALT LAKE CITY, Utah, August 22, 2018 – C.R. England and England Logistics have donated 750,000 meals to feed hungry children as they work to feed one million children in 2018. Reaching this achievement early Wednesday, August 22, the two companies will continue to work alongside carriers, customers, and freight agents through the One Initiative to fight childhood hunger.
In their mission against childhood hunger, C.R. England and England Logistics have implemented a donation structure that converts profits earned from each business service at either company into meals for children in need. 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. Both companies have held food drives and participated in service opportunities throughout the year to increase the amount of donations.
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, Virginia Peninsula Foodbank, and Banco de Alimentos Querétaro.
The One initiative is dedicated to working with communities to ensure proper nutrition for children throughout the country, and thereby provide them with a successful future. For more information or to donate, please visit www.oneagainstchildhoodhunger.com.
