Social Purpose

Feeding our neighbors in need.

October 2021 Social Purpose Results

According to the USDA, one in nine people in the U.S. may not know where their next meal is coming from1. As foodservice industry leaders, NAFEM and its member companies care about helping people in our communities, especially those who struggle with hunger. That’s why NAFEM is focusing its social purpose platform on fighting hunger. NAFEM has committed to contributing $300,000 to Feeding America in 2021. NAFEM also will match member contributions up to $200,000 to their local Feeding America member food banks which could result in overall contributions to Feeding America of $700,000, or 7 million meals.
