As the holidays approach, many of the Hum-ans on our team are looking forward to gathering around the dinner table with friends and family. We’re counting our blessings – but we’re also thinking about those in our communities who face food insecurity.
Last year, 53 million people in the United States turned to food banks and community programs for help; and in today’s economic uncertainty, there are many more that will struggle to put food on the table for their families this holiday season.
As a remote-first company, Hum was eager to find an efficient and remote-friendly way to give back to the community - so we hosted a virtual food drive in partnership with Feeding America, the largest hunger-relief organization in the United States.
Feeding America provides food to millions of people each year through a network of 200 food banks and 60,000 food pantries and meal programs. They partner with local food programs and advocate for policies that create long-term solutions to hunger.
We’re proud to announce that we exceeded our donation goal of $300, which will fund more than 3,000 meals for people in need this holiday season.
To sweeten the deal even further, along with contributions, we collected some of our all-time favorite holiday recipes and compiled them into a “Hum for the Holidays” virtual cookbook to share:
If you’d like to contribute to Feeding America, you can still do so through Hum’s virtual fundraising page. A $5 contribution can provide 50 meals to those in need.
Together, we can make a real difference in the fight against hunger!
