Food for Change
HARVESTERS’ BACKSNACK PROGRAM
Through our local partnership with Harvesters, we are proud to use a portion of our earnings to participate in BackSnack. This program serves community children who risk hunger on weekends by providing them with a weekly backpack full of heathy, delicious and child-friendly food selections.
Child hunger is not only experienced by underprivileged and underdeveloped children from faraway nations. The hidden truth is, children in America are starving too. According to research, 1 in every 6 children in America do not know where they will get their next meal. These 16+ million kids in the U.S. are facing hunger, resulting in a lack of energy they need to learn and grow.
48 million people (12.2 million children) in America face hunger, yet 70 billion pounds of food goes to waste each year in our country.
Taking a Stand
WHY WE GIVE BACK
Every day, in every community, children are going hungry. This epidemic is forcing future generations to fall behind and face challenges no child should ever have to face. At Sunflower Fundraising, we recognize this societal issue and pledge to contribute efforts toward the cause.
By partnering with Harvesters, our company is supplying local students with nutritional food bags for weekend meals. Across our partnered service area, more than 100,000 students rely on free or reduced-price school meals during the week for survival. By donating company earnings and actively participating in the BackSnack program, Sunflower is giving the hungry children in our community a chance to fight against food insecurity.
After working with many schools and children throughout our fundraising journey, our organization has come to truly value and appreciate the youth of our country. We will not settle for childhood hunger. We will not accept anything less than our community deserves. That’s why at Sunflower Fundraising, we have chosen to take a stand.
