A Huge Thank You To Bristol Myers-Squibb

A huge thank you to Bristol Myers-Squibb and the employee work team that came out to Bentley this week.

Helping hands broke down pallets of beverages, they went through generous food provisions that came in from our generous providers, shelves were stocked with non-perishable products, flowers were cut and placed in buckets of water, the toiletries and basic needs products area was refurbished and our storage area and shelves were replenished.  We are truly thankful and certainly blessed!

Beverages!

We are certainly grateful for the generous donation of pallets of beverages that we were in need of for our participant families.  Thank you to PepsiCo for your generous provisions and Penske for providing the transportation.  Bentley is blessed! So many of the children of our participant families participate in sports so these beverages are truly appreciated.

World Food Day

World Food Day is Friday, October 16, 2015.

World Food Day is a day of action against hunger. On October 16, people around the world come together to declare their commitment to eradicate hunger in our lifetime. Because when it comes to hunger, the only acceptable number in the world is zero.

World Food Day celebrates the creation of the Food and Agriculture Organization of the United Nations (FAO) on October 16, 1945 in Quebec, Canada. First established in 1979, World Food Day has since then been observed in almost every country by millions of people.

In North America, grassroots events and public awareness campaigns engage diverse audiences in action against hunger.  From hunger walks and World Food Day dinners to meal packaging events and food drives, there are many ways for people to be a part of solutions to hunger.
