This food drive provided some of the best product that we have seen in a while.
San Diego, CA (PRWEB) February 26, 2013
This past Holiday season, TrendSource employees banded together to help the less fortunate in the community by gathering food items to donate to the Feeding America San Diego Food Drive. Because of these donations, Feeding America was able to provide 516 healthy meals to local San Diegans in need.
The company’s actions did not go unnoticed. After TrendSource employees dropped off 645 pounds of various food products to the Feeding America distribution center, Feeding America San Diego expressed their gratitude to TrendSource for their efforts.
“TrendSource was able to collect all of the items on our Most Needed list, so as a result, we will be able to utilize these donations in our market center where partner agencies shop for items to take back to their soup kitchens, pantries, and distribution centers,” said Feeding America in their blog.
“This food drive provided some of the best product that we have seen in a while,” said Feeding America Market Center Manager Joe Campos. “None of the items were expired and the majority of the donations are nutritious food that our agencies are going to love! These items might get fought over-haha!”
To orchestrate this food drive, the TrendSource corporate office, located in San Diego, CA, was divided into teams by departments as a way to stir up some healthy competition. From November through January, donations were counted on a weekly basis and totals were shared to keep excitement high. In the end, the Business Development Team won by a hair, but really, Feeding America won as TrendSource was able to donate over 1,100 food items.
