Carriage Court Senior Living Recognizes National Food Bank Day

Category: Senior Living

Author: Jeffrey Hower, Culinary Director

To recognize National Food Bank Day on September 2nd, Carriage Court Senior Living will be participating in a canned food drive with a goal of bringing awareness to those that go hungry. As the Culinary Director, I am honored to be a part of this important day, held annually on the first Friday in September.

John van Hengel is credited with starting the first food bank in 1967 to redistribute food and

prevent the wastage of groceries by handing it out to the poor and hungry. National Food Bank Day is not only a reminder that no one should go to bed hungry, but also a day to honor those workers, volunteers, and food bank charities who work to distribute food year-around.

We will be donating to Mid-Ohio Food Bank. It’s close and has one of the best reputations in the area. Our donation will include an assortment of canned goods. It is important to donate to your local food bank because, if nothing else, you never know when you may need these services. It’s important to imagine yourself in situations where you might need the charity of others so you can remain empathetic to those less fortunate (at the moment). Good nutrition is important for everyone. You can’t work without being healthy and nutrition is a key factor.

In the US alone, about 42 million people struggle with food insecurity. Our team is hopeful we

can make a positive impact on those numbers by supporting for our local food banks in honor of

National Food Bank Day. We will be delivering our non-perishable items on September 2nd and look forward to sharing with you all what a difference we all can make when we give a little.
