Marco donates $15,000 to 15 schools

Marco donates $15,000 to 15 schools

November 22, 2021

Marco Technologies is taking a step toward helping to curb childhood hunger by donating to 15 school food pantries.

Marco announced the results of its recent Give Back 2 School project. Based on nominations and votes cast by Marco’s social media followers and employees, Marco selected 15 schools across eight states and gave each one $1,000 (€886) for their school food pantry. School food pantry programmes help alleviate child hunger by distributing food to children to eat at home after school, on the weekends and during school breaks.

Lori Wollmuth, Community Relations Manager at Feeding Our Communities Partners in Mankato, Minnesota, appreciated Marco’s donation to help feed students. “Your compassionate support will give area children access to nutritious food packs on weekends and bring peace of mind and security in knowing where the next meal will come from. For many local children, your loving generosity is life-changing,” Wollmuth said.

As many as 13 million students go to school hungry each day, according to No Kid Hungry, a non-profit organisation with a primary focus to end childhood hunger. While many students qualify for free and reduced-priced breakfast and lunch programmes at their schools, these students go home after school or for the weekend to find scarce food options and even empty cupboards.

“The research is clear that being hungry has an enormous impact on a student’s ability to learn,” said Dawn Zimmerman, Marco’s Chief Marketing Officer. “When kids are hungry, they can have trouble concentrating, fall behind academically, and are more likely suffer from depression and anxiety.”

Marco initiated its Give Back 2 School campaign to further support the communities it serves and help reduce child hunger. Marco asked its social media followers and employees to nominate a school that could benefit from a $1,000 (€886) donation toward a food pantry. Marco received 38 nominations and selected 15.

“We appreciate everyone who took time to nominate a school and vote. We are pleased to support 15 schools and the students they serve in our communities,” Zimmerman said. “Marco has been a long-time partner with schools across the country, and we recognise the key impact schools have in helping students academically and nutritionally by feeding their mind and nourishing their bodies.”

Giving back to the community is a core value at Marco. The company commits dollars every year to support charitable causes across the communities it serves. This is part of Marco’s Gold Standard culture and commitment to do good as a business.

“We are committed to giving back to the communities we serve – in every way we can,” Zimmerman said.
