The need to serve our communities is greater than ever. During the coronavirus pandemic, one in four kids in America can be facing hunger this year.
AUSTIN, Texas (PRWEB) June 09, 2020
Nationally broadcast home shopping channel and ecommerce website, Shop LC, announces Tuesday that 20 million meals have been provided through the Shop LC One for One Program.
The Shop LC One for One Program donates one meal to a hungry child in the US or India for every item purchased. Since 2017, the Central Texas-based network has been providing these meals at no extra cost to the consumer. Instead, the cost is paid directly from Shop LC profits.
The purpose of these programs is to connect children with an education without having to worry about being hungry. Feeding kids at school sees increased attendance, better performance, and lower dropout rates. For children coming from low-income homes, it provides the opportunity to break the cycle of generational poverty.
“Serving 20 million meals is an incredibly humbling milestone,” explains Michelle Long, Director of Communication & CSR, Shop LC. “The need to serve our communities is greater than ever. During the coronavirus pandemic, one in four kids in America can be facing hunger this year. During this time, our incredible partners have been pivoting, and finding innovative ways to get healthy meals to these children, whether it is meal finding tools, grants, or even serving meals directly to marginalized communities. Without our partners Akshaya Patra and No Kid Hungry, we could not have reached our milestone.”
