Smoothie King to Host Fundraiser for North Texas Food Bank
Dallas-Based Smoothie Company CEO Joins NTFB Board and Makes $50,000 Donation
Dallas, Jan. 19, 2021 // GLOBE NEWSWIRE // - Smoothie King, the Dallas-based smoothie company inspiring guests to live healthy and active lifestyles across the world, has partnered with the North Texas Food Bank to host a fundraiser at Smoothie King locations in the Dallas area. From January 18 to January 31, guests will have the opportunity to donate either $1 or $5 at checkout to show their support.
One in six people in North Texas is food insecure and doesn’t know where his or her next meal is coming from. Every $1 helps provide three nutritious meals for hungry children, seniors and families in the community.
“We are proud to partner with the North Texas Food Bank to feed nutritious meals to those in need,” said Wan Kim, CEO of Smoothie King and North Texas Food Bank board member. “I believe that no child or family should go hungry and providing nutritious meals to them fits perfectly with what our brand stands for. With this fundraiser, we hope to raise funds that will allow the North Texas Food Bank to feed hungry people well into 2021.”
Kim joined the North Texas Food Bank board in the fall of 2020 and kicked off the partnership between Smoothie King and the charity with a $50,000 donation. The purpose of the current fundraiser at select Smoothie King locations is not only to help financially support the organization, but also to increase awareness that hunger and food insecurity is a year-round issue.
With this partnership, Smoothie King is aiding North Texas Food Bank’s cause while simultaneously fulfilling its vision to be an integral part of every health and fitness journey.
“The North Texas Food Bank team is thrilled to have Wan Kim join us on our board of directors,” said Trisha Cunningham, President and CEO of the North Texas Food Bank. “With just a few months on the board he has already made a tremendous impact, he is committed to helping the NTFB meet our fundraising goals and this fundraising partnership is a perfect example of his tenacity for our mission. We are thankful to the Smoothie King team for championing our mission.”
