At a time when more families in Colorado face the threat of going hungry, FBR announced at a recent press conference that Chase has donated two state-of-the-art refrigerated food delivery trucks to supply Colorado and Wyoming’s hungry with fruits, vegetables, dairy products and other fresh food.
Chase announced its donation in Denver as part of a $5 million national grant to Feeding America and its nationwide network of food banks. This donation marks the largest single corporate donation that Feeding America has received from a corporation to date. The national donation will support hunger-fighting initiatives, supplying 34 trucks to 20 food banks in communities hit hard by the recession. The trucks’ destinations include Feeding America network food banks in 19 cities and local communities nationwide. With the new trucks, food banks can transport up to 1.5 million pounds of food — the equivalent of 1,171,185 additional meals — annually.
