U.S. Lawns Volunteers for Second Harvest Food Bank of Central Florida
U.S. Lawns Home Office team and local franchisees volunteered time to help provide meals to families in need.
(PRWEB) November 07, 2017 - U.S. Lawns, a commercial grounds care company with a nationwide franchise network in over 250 locations, is proud of their Home Office Team and local franchisees for volunteering time to help Second Harvest Food Bank of Central Florida. In just one Saturday afternoon, U.S. Lawns, along with other volunteers, were able to organize and box up 8,138 pounds of food for a total of 6,782 meals.
Second Harvest Food Bank works with 550 local feeding partners and last year provided 54 million meals to families, kids and seniors. Through their distribution network, this food is often in the hands of people in need later the same day it arrives in their warehouse. They are also a member of Feeding America, a nationwide network of more than 200 food banks that helps feed people across the country after natural disasters, like hurricanes, floods, fires, tornadoes, etc.
Second Harvest also transforms dozens of lives directly every year. Economically-challenged adults graduate from their 14-week culinary training program and are placed in ‘better than minimum wage’ jobs that set them and their families on a path to self-sustainability.
"Our brand position as a franchisor is to Improve Your Community. Improve Your Life," said U.S. Lawns President Ken Hutcheson. "There’s no greater cause than providing food for families, seniors and others who may otherwise not receive what they need. That’s why we chose to help out Second Harvest. And Second Harvest’s culinary training provides hope and courage to people to help them transform their future."
U.S. Lawns is committed to doing their part to give back to communities nationwide, and honored to support Second Harvest Food Bank because they reflect the essence of the U.S. Lawns vision.
