Investacorp Provides 4,989 Meals to Families in Need
Earns Ultimate Hunger Hero Award from Feeding South Florida
Staff and friends of the Investacorp family recently participated in Feeding South Florida’s Food Frenzy. The program is a friendly competition designed to help end hunger in South Florida and provide food for families in need during the Thanksgiving holiday. Feeding South Florida is the leading hunger-relief organization serving Palm Beach, Broward, Miami-Dade, and Monroe Counties.
551 Pounds of Food, $755 in Cash Donations
For two weeks, the Investacorp home office staff collected 551 pounds of food and $755 in cash donations. The combined efforts are equivalent to 4,989 meals, and earned Investacorp the Ultimate Hunger Hero award for being the top fundraiser within the financial industry category.
One Dollar Equals Six Meals
According to Feeding South Florida, every 1.2 pounds of food equals one meal, and every $1 collected equals six meals. Some of the most needed food items include: peanut butter, cereal, mac & cheese, rice & beans, as well as canned soups, meats and vegetables.
In response to his team’s fundraising efforts, Investacorp President and CEO Patrick Farrell said, “I’m grateful for our team and their ability to rally together to combat food insecurity among our neighbors. The Investacorp family believes strongly that awareness, education, compassion and action are the key agents needed to combat hunger. By joining together, we can collectively create a hunger-free community, one that enables all members to reach their full potential.”
Earlier this year, Investacorp employees, friends and family spent an afternoon inspecting, sorting and packaging approximately 34,750 pounds of food for vulnerable populations across the four county service area in South Florida.
