Jericho, NY — To help address the growing issue of food insecurity, 1-800-FLOWERS.COM, Inc. has launched a holiday campaign to benefit Feeding America, the nation’s largest domestic hunger-relief organization.
Now through December 24, for each gift purchased from the company’s Season of Giving holiday collection, 20 percent of the net proceeds will be donated to Feeding America. Throughout the 10-week campaign, customers can also make monetary donations to support Feeding America. Through the campaign, the company will help provide at least 500,000 meals.
“Hunger knows no boundaries, touching every community in America,” says Sloane Lucas, senior director of ESG and CSR. “Funds raised during our campaign will help fight food insecurity in local communities across the country. Giving is truly the gift when helping neighbors in need.”
1-800-FLOWERS.COM has a long-standing relationship with Feeding America, through ongoing product donations to food banks throughout the U.S. In 2021, the company donated nearly $6 million worth of perishable product to Feeding America-affiliated food banks as well as other local nonprofits that provide direct assistance to families facing hunger.
“As we continue to feel the impact of inflation this holiday season, food banks across the nation have reported an increase in the number of people in need of support,” says Lauren Biedron, vice-president of corporate partnerships at Feeding America. “Every donation helps us better serve local communities, and we are excited to expand our work with 1-800-FLOWERS.COM, Inc. through their holiday campaign.”
