Food Love partnership supports mission to end hunger in our community. Bite Squad today announced a partnership with All Faiths Food Bank to support the nonprofit organization’s mission to provide healthy solutions to end hunger in our community. The Food Love partnership, which provides the food bank with charitable funding and employee volunteers, kicks off on World Food Day, observed around the world on October 16, in collective action against hunger.
“While it is our job to deliver food that people love to hungry customers, we are keenly aware of our neighbors who are battling true hunger,” said Liz Sniegocki, Field Marketing Manager of Bite Squad in Sarasota. “Through our Food Love partnership, we’re collaborating with outstanding local organizations to give back and help fight hunger in the communities we serve.”
The Food Love partnership initiative launches today in Sarasota with the donation of one dollar for every delivery order placed with a dedicated promotional code on the Bite Squad ordering platform, through November 30. The partnership also includes sponsorship of the All Faiths Food Bank’s annual fundraiser, Bowls of Hope, on November 12, at Ed Smith Stadium, as well as volunteer support from Bite Squad at the event.
“Bite Squad employees will be serving soup provided by one of our quality restaurant partners, Simon’s Coffee House, as well as assisting in restaurant check-in for Bowls of Hope,” said Sniegocki, who is serving on the event’s Community Outreach Committee for the third year, formerly representing Ashley’s Food Delivery, which merged with Bite Squad in August. “Bite Squad is new to the community, and we’re thrilled to continue the relationship with All Faiths Food Bank that Ashley’s Food Delivery built here in Sarasota.”
All Faiths Food Bank is one of six Food Love partners along with Feeding Tampa Bay in Tampa, FL, Bread of the Mighty Food Bank in Gainesville, FL, Arkansas Food Bank in Little Rock, AR, Hawaii Food Bank in Honolulu, HI, and The Gathering Place at Hennepin County Medical Center in Minneapolis, MN. Bite Squad has pledged to donate up to $5,000 nationwide towards the 2017 Food Love partnership to help end hunger locally.
