Feeding America, the nation's leading hunger-relief organization, announced today that ADP® , a leading provider of business outsourcing solutions, has donated $500,000 to help fight hunger in America.
"ADP is proud to make this contribution to Feeding America on behalf of our associates," said Gary Butler, president and chief executive officer of ADP."We commend the organization's efforts to provide food assistance to more than 25 million people throughout the country."
Feeding America's network members supply food to more than 25 million Americans each year, including 9 million children and 3 million seniors. Today, one in eight Americans do not always know where they will find their next meal. ADP's $500,000 donation will help to provide millions of meals to hungry Americans.
"The rising prices of food and gas are forcing millions of people to make the difficult decision between paying the bills and putting food on the table," said Vicki Escarrra, president and chief executive officer of Feeding America."ADP's generous donation will help us make a difference in the lives of Americans who need a helping hand and are having trouble making ends meet."
Across the board, food banks are witnessing an average increased need of nearly 20 percent. Some food banks are even reporting that they are now providing emergency food to people who were once donors. There are more than 36 million Americans at risk of hunger and the number is growing every day.
