Applegate Joins Conscious Alliance On the Road to End Childhood Hunger by Donating More than 20,000 Meals this Winter
With 1 in 4 children in the United States unsure of where their next meal is coming from this year, up from 1 in 6 this time last year, Applegate—the nation’s leading natural and organic meat brand—will be donating more than 20,000 meals to Conscious Alliance’s On the Road to End Childhood Hunger campaign.
Applegate is hoping to double the amount of donated meals, to 40,000 meals, by starting its own On the Road to End Childhood Hunger fundraising page for fellow Applegatarians who want to help and are able to contribute this holiday season. Applegate will be matching all donations made on its fundraising page by December 31, 2020, up to $5,000.
“Our overall goal this winter is to raise $100,000 which will allow us to distribute 200,000 meals to kids and their families all across the country,” said Justin Levy, executive director of Conscious Alliance. “We can’t do it alone and with every $1 donated, we are able to use our resources to provide two meals to a hungry kiddo.”
In addition to making a monetary donation to On the Road to End Childhood Hunger, Applegate has teamed up with Conscious Alliance to provide more than 50,000 pounds of natural and organic meat to those in need this holiday season.
“We are incredibly thankful for our partnership with Conscious Alliance and want to take the time to properly thank them for all the good they put out into the world and on to people’s tables,” said John Ghingo, president of Applegate. “2020 has been a tough year for many, and with the help of Conscious Alliance, we hope to ease some stress caused to those by food security.”
