reported that after only 60 days, the program has donated more than
three million meals to help Feeding America® provide more

and seniors in communities across the United States. The company
announced initial results of the program to help mark September’s
national Hunger Action Month which raises awareness to fight hunger in
communities across the nation.

enables our associates to be involved personally and directly in making
