Food Bank Challenge

JOIN THE CONNEX FOUNDATION FIGHT AGAINST HUNGER

CONNEX FOUNDATION GOAL = 350,000 MEALS

MEALS DONATED TO DATE = 41,242 MEALS

Week in and week out, Food Banks across the world are helping those in need. The arrival of the Coronavirus has brought a new season of need for many, and the Connex Foundation IMPACT Committee has organized a Food Bank Challenge to provide additional support to make an IMPACT to those in need.

Throughout June the Connex Foundation has partnered with Feeding America and Daily Bread Food Bank Canada. We are challenging companies and individuals to give back and make an IMPACT to their local communities by supporting local food banks.

 

Connex members have been split into 6 U.S. regions/teams and a Canadian region/team. Each region has a goal to provide 50,000 meals.

Give back to your community and help your region WIN the Connex Foundation Food Bank Challenge!
