Flex Technology Group announced it has established a charitable partnership with Feeding America to help fight food insecurity during the holiday season in the communities where FTG companies do business. Flex Technology Group is comprised of a group of regional companies that together provide industries with an extended reach of nationally managed print services while still maintaining a local focus.
As a joint initiative, FTG’s collective companies are collaborating with their local Feeding America food banks to support Feeding America’s goal of helping people get the food and resources they need to survive. Flex Technology Group employees are volunteering throughout the month at local food banks and food pantries, as well as donating funds to the cause, which FTG is matching.
“Feeding America is the largest charity working to end hunger in the United States and depends on support from organizations like ours to fulfill its mission to change people’s lives for the better,” said Frank Gaspari, founder and CEO of Flex Technology Group. “I would like to recognize our corporate DEI alliance for leading this initiative as part of their 2023 corporate responsibility roadmap and extend my gratitude to the dedicated project team that helped bring this charitable partnership to life in what is now a company-wide initiative.”
Feeding America is the nation’s largest domestic hunger-relief organization, made up of food banks, food pantries and meal programs. Feeding America’s position as the largest charity on this year’s “Forbes Top 100 Charities” list is reflective of the urgent situation that continues to unfold in the U.S. where 1 in 7 people—including 1 in 5 children—live in food insecure households, a sharp increase compared to food insecurity rates during the pandemic. While headlines often report lower unemployment and an improved economy, hunger remains an urgent crisis. Food banks in the Feeding America network are reporting increased pressure due to decreasing food donations and fundraising.
Feeding America is a Flex Technology Group customer with local food banks coast-to-coast. The partnership will provide employees with local community involvement opportunities, both virtual and in person. It adds to Flex Technology Group’s already-established community involvement programs, which encourage employees to donate money or volunteer a portion of their time at work to support an approved 501(c)(3) organization of their choice, as well as receive a donation match from FTG.
