Healthpointe will be working with the Los Angeles Regional Food Bank in hope to not only bring awareness of the need in the communities, but to also address it by collecting as much food as possible and providing it to people in need.
La Mirada, CA (PRWEB) May 22, 2017
Healthpointe is proud to announce that they have teamed up with the Los Angeles Regional Food Bank for Healthpointe’s company-wide charity food drive. From May 15, 2017 through June 2, 2017, hundreds of Healthpointe employees will be donating cans and bags of food that will be collected and given to the Los Angeles Regional Food Bank.
At Healthpointe, one of the goals is to help people live healthy lives and promote well-being. In an effort to make a difference, Healthpointe will be working with the Los Angeles Regional Food Bank in hope to not only bring awareness of the need in the communities, but to also address it by collecting as much food as possible and providing it to people in need.
Since the Los Angeles Food Bank began in 1973, it has distributed more than 1 billion pounds of food and has continued to provide meals to 300,000 people every month. In 2016, twenty percent of the food they provided was fresh produce. While the organization distributes meals and helps fight hunger, they bring hope to the community. Healthpointe recognizes their vision and would like to join them in their movement. (1)
Dr. Shulze, an occupational and family practice doctor, as well as Dr. Silva, an orthopedic surgeon, at Healthpointe both advocate for the importance of not only feeding those in need, but also providing them with healthy options. On the topic of Healthpointe’s first food drive, Dr. Shulze said, “The most important key to staying healthy is nutritious food. A good diet is the best first step to staying out of my office. Except for check-ups of course.”
This is Healthpointe’s first charity food drive with the Los Angeles Regional Food Bank, but most certainly not the last. Healthpointe regularly holds drives and charity events for many great causes that help the communities they serve. Healthpointe looks forward to future drives with the Los Angeles Reginal Food Bank, and hopefully others, in an effort to take further steps in giving back to the community.
