To recognize National Food Bank Day on September 2nd, VITALIA Active Adult Community® – Rockside will be participating in a canned food drive with a goal of bringing awareness to those that go hungry. As the Culinary Director, I am honored to be a part of this important day, held annually on the first Friday in September.
John van Hengel is credited with starting the first food bank in 1967 to redistribute food and prevent the wastage of groceries by handing it out to the poor and hungry. National Food Bank Day is not only a reminder that no one should go to bed hungry, but also a day to honor those workers, volunteers, and food bank charities who work to distribute food year-around.
We are donating three cases of soup to the Greater Cleveland Food Bank. I chose this food bank because it is the largest and most established in the greater Cleveland area.
I feel it is important to donate to our local food bank. I read on their website; one out of six people do not know where their next meal is coming from. Good nutrition is important because you are what you eat. If you eat healthy, then you feel good and are more energetic than if you eat junk food.
In the US alone, about 42 million people struggle with food insecurity. Our team is hopeful we can make a positive impact on those numbers by supporting for our local food banks in honor of National Food Bank Day. We will be delivering our non-perishable items on September 2nd and look forward to sharing with you all what a difference we all can make when we give a little.
