C.R. England and England Logistics Set Goal to Fund One Million Meals for Children in 2019

Salt Lake City, UT, Feb. 12, 2019 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- C.R. England and England Logistics have set a goal to provide funding for one million meals for children in 2019 through partnerships with 21 food banks located in the United States and Mexico. 

This marks the second consecutive year the two companies have set a goal to provide funding for children’s meals programs as part of the “One Initiative,” a campaign that invites company employees, customers, carriers, freight agents, and the general public to join the fight against childhood hunger.  The companies set a combined goal in 2018 of one million donated meals and far exceeded that milestone, funding more than 1.6 million meals by year-end.

Forty million people face hunger in the United States — including more than 12 million children. One in six children may not know where they will get their next meal. In January 2018, C.R. England and England Logistics implemented a donation structure that converts proceeds earned from any business service at either company into meals for children in need. For instance, for every load C.R. England delivers, it donates a meal to a food bank of the delivery driver’s choosing. Similarly, for every load England Logistics arranges, a donation towards a meal is provided.

 “When we launched the One Initiative in 2018, we hoped we could have an impact in fighting childhood hunger in the communities where our employees and customers live and work,” said Josh England, president of C.R. England. “We were thrilled to far exceed our goal in 2018 and hope to surpass the one million meals goal again in 2019. The One Initiative has helped unite our employees, customers, and the general public in an effort that is making an immediate contribution to alleviating childhood hunger.”

“We are grateful for the opportunity to take our efforts to the next level in 2019,” stated Jason Beardall, president of England Logistics. “The One Initiative has provided our team the opportunity to become more fully immersed in our commitment to serving a cause greater than ourselves. As we continue to strengthen our team and customer relationships, we will also continue to strengthen our communities.”

The One Initiative’s efforts are focused on 21 partner food banks in communities where their employees live and work. Every donation leads directly to a food-insecure child receiving a meal. Some of the funding supports Kids Café, Back Pack programs, Mobile and School-based Food Pantries, Summer Meals for Kids, and Healthy Student Initiatives, among other programs.

Participating food banks include Utah Food Bank, Atlanta Community Food Bank, Blue Ridge Area Food Bank, Central Pennsylvania Food Bank, Central California Food Bank, Feeding America Riverside/San Bernardino,Food Bank of Northwest Indiana, Food Bank of the Rockies, Gleaners Food Bank of Indiana, Gleaners Food Bank of Southeastern Michigan, Greater Chicago Food Depository, Harvesters - The Community Food Network (Kansas City), North Texas Food Bank, Oregon Food Bank, Regional Food Bank of Northeastern New York, Second Harvest Inland Northwest, Second Harvest of Southeast North Carolina, South Texas Food Bank, St. Mary's Food Bank Alliance, and Virginia Peninsula Foodbank. In Mexico, Banco de Alimentos Querétaro (Queretaro).

The One Initiative is founded on the idea that through a united effort, a nationwide difference can be made to benefit children in need. For more information or to make a tax-deductible donation to the One Against Childhood Hunger Foundation, visit www.oneagainstchildhoodhunger.com.
