Defeat Hunger is part of FPSA's Giving Back initiative. In conjunction with the Greater Chicago Food Depository (GCFD), FPSA will be holding a food drive at PROCESS EXPO 2013, with all donations and proceeds going to the GCFD to help fight hunger in the greater Chicago area. In addition to donating $75,000 and accepting donations from others to give to GCFD, we’re holding an on-site food drive at McCormick Place during PROCESS EXPO. Feel free to join us by bringing your canned goods to the show.
Many exhibitors have responded to this campaign. At Marlen International, employees collected a total of 600 canned goods
Wire Belt Company of America donated over $500 worth of food – 120 cans EACH of Beef Stew, Pinto Beans, Ravioli, Chili, Spinach, Peas and Peaches. This donation alone helped serve over 2,000 people!
And FPSA staff is also conducting their own canned food drive too. (pig-ture)
