Supporting hunger relief efforts is a philanthropic focus area for us at WhiteWave. We’re passionate about ensuring access to better-for-you foods, including in Colorado where we’re headquartered.
Taking this to heart, we spread a little extra love yesterday on Valentine’s Day. Our very own WhiteWave team member Jessica Sibila helped to host a mobile food pantry where all five Feeding Colorado food banks teamed up to provide those in need with nutritious food options.
The mobile pantry featured healthy items like potatoes, cereal, bread, apples and soup. For our part, we provided gallons of Horizon Organic milk and some of our shelf-stable Silk Almondmilk.
In just one day, we helped serve 146 households with 46 seniors, 88 children and 309 adults. In addition to feeding hundreds, the mobile food panty was strategically positioned in front of the Colorado State Capitol to engage state legislators with the goal of raising awareness around Feeding Colorado and the collective impact we all make in hunger relief.
If you would like to help support a local food bank near you, Feeding America has some great suggestions for how to get involved.
