Fox Run Senior Living Recognizes National Food Bank Day

Category: Senior Living

Author: Rhonda Nelson, Culinary Director

To recognize National Food Bank Day on September 2nd, Fox Run Senior Living 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 Enon Emergency Relief. I chose this food bank because it is in our small community. We figured they needed help more than a bigger city would. We will be donating an assortment of canned goods and non-perishable items.

I feel it is important to donate to our local food bank to help the people in our community that need it. Good nutrition is vital, and a healthy diet promotes normal growth and reduces the risk of chronic disease.

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.
