To recognize National Food Bank Day on September 2nd, VITALIA Active Adult Community® – Solon 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 to the Greater Cleveland Food Bank. I chose this location because it is close to VITALIA Active Adult Community® – Solon and we strive to support our local community. We want to help our most local food bank. We will be collecting and donating a care package of canned and non-perishable goods.
It is always important, in my eyes, to help give back to the community through the local food bank, to help those in need. As a member of the customer service industry and the healthcare industry, it is near and dear to my heart to help aid people and to help to provide to others, especially those who may be less fortunate than others.
Good nutrition is important to help sustain one’s being. Without the proper nutrients to help sustain the body, we become weak and in worst case scenarios even perish. It is important to me to help be sure everyone can get those proper nutrients to sustain life and remain as healthy as possible.
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.
