We’re helping to raise $1 million to help millions facing hunger
RTM Engineering Consultants is honored to participate in The Global FoodBanking Network (GFN) ‘8 Million by 2018’ Challenge, a worldwide campaign to provide nutritious meals to eight million people facing hunger by the end of 2018.
“We’re excited that our donation to The Global FoodBanking Network can have such a positive impact for many around the world,” said Tony Mirchandani, RTM CEO. “At RTM, we strive to make a difference in the neighborhoods we live and work; we invest in our team members and our communities through various fundraisers and team building community events. The ‘8 Million by 2018’ challenge is an amazing cause that our team is grateful to be a part of.”
To reach its goal, GFN is working with partners to raise $1 million—an anonymous donor has offered to match dollar-for-dollar for each new and increased gift received by June 30, 2017, up to $500,000. The funds raised will go toward advancing the network’s technical and educational support to food bank members and building food banks’ capacity to rescue more food and serve more people.
“We have the incredible opportunity to broaden the impact food banks have on communities around the world,” said Lisa Moon, GFN President and Chief Executive Officer. “Thanks to the generosity of our anonymous donor and other anti-hunger advocates, we’re off to a fast start toward making ‘8 Million by 2018’ a reality.”
GFN is comprised of a network of food banks located in more than 30 countries that today feeds 6.8 million people in need.
