Elara Brands is pleased to announce that we have helped provide more than 4 million meals to people facing hunger to date through our partnership with Feeding America.
That’s enough food to give a meal to everyone in Chicago and Dallas combined!
This incredible milestone was made possible by our caring customers. Their commitment to fighting hunger is bringing us closer to the day when everyone has access to the food they need to thrive.
Are you curious how our customers helped us reach millions of meals? Want to know more about the issue of hunger and why we’re so focused on it? Read on to learn more.
How Our Customers are Fighting Hunger
Without our customers, we wouldn’t be able to fill empty plates with wholesome food. Their purchases allow us offer nourishment to millions of our neighbors in need.
That’s because through our signature One Case • One Meal program, for every case of Elara products purchased, we provide a donation to Feeding America. Those donations become meals that reach the tables of struggling families across our country, thanks to Feeding America’s nationwide network of food banks.
“Our customers are a true inspiration,” says Elara Brands President Dan Grinberg. “They are dedicated to giving back to the communities where their employees and customers live and work. Their commitment to social responsibility helps me look to the future with confidence.”
And when our customers tell their own customers and employees that they buy personal protective equipment (PPE) from Elara Brands and fight hunger in the process, they enjoy surprising benefits.
Our customers report that working with Elara Brands helps them distinguish themselves as conscientious, forward-thinking companies. That helps them attract, retain and engage good talent – and improves their standing in their community.
Why We’re Providing Millions of Meals
Like our hunger-fighting partner, Feeding America, people are at the center of all we do at Elara Brands. Our commitment to hunger relief and our One Case • One Meal program have been embedded in Elara’s business model since the day we were founded.
We’re in the business of offering PPE that keeps communities safe. We’re also firmly planted in the social impact sector, having provided over 4 million meals and counting to people facing hunger.
Our commitment to giving back has never been more central to our work than it is now. According to Feeding America, 1 in 6 people — more than 50 million — in America could face food insecurity following the COVID-19 crisis. That’s 15 million more people than in 2019.
As food banks face unprecedented levels of need, we’re ready to continue contributing to the fight against hunger. We can’t just stand by and watch as hundreds – or even thousands – of cars line up at emergency food distributions around the country.
Who We’re Helping
Our hunger-fighting mission enables us to offer relief to people like 8 year old Zoey. Her dad’s military service left him disabled, and her family struggles to get by.
“My mom and dad have to go without just so that us kids can have food in our stomachs,” says Zoey. “It makes me sad. Because it’s either I can eat their food or I don’t eat at all.”
Watch the video below to see how Feeding America food banks connect families like Zoey’s with the meals they need.
“The food bank helps us,” says Zoey. “Food makes you healthy, it makes you strong and it helps you grow.”
Thank You for Joining our Journey
The future is uncertain. Elara Brands remains hopeful as we remember that we’re surrounded by many others committed to helping our neighbors in need.
Our customers are the reason we can celebrate giving an incredible 4 million meals to families struggling with hunger. Their purchases of gloves, bags, apparel and more are directly connected to our ability to share meals with people struggling with hunger.
We’re making a big difference in the lives of millions of people by working together. For this reason, in spite of the challenges we continue to face, we’re celebrating the fact that we’ve provided 4 million meals in collaboration with Feeding America.
Thank you for working with Elara Brands to protect people and fight hunger.
