At Expo West, KeHE gathered over 100 employee volunteers to coordinate and execute the largest meal packing event in the show’s history. In LA county there are 1.9 million people that live below the poverty line – 40% of them are children. KeHE joined forces with New Hope Network, Children’s Hunger Fund, and over a thousand Expo West attendees’ helping hands to pack 100,000 meals for 2,000 local Southern California families fighting hunger.
KeHE couldn’t have accomplished this impactful task without the help of KeHE employee volunteers, Expo West attendees, and the KeHE Suppliers that contributed to the serving event: Annie’s Homegrown, Arrowhead Mills, Cadia, Go Go Squeez, Nutiva, Patience Fruit, Peeled Snacks, Pomi, Sahale Snacks, SunButter, This Bar Saves Lives, Tilda & World Finer Foods – DaVinci.
“On behalf of everyone at Children’s Hunger Fund, I want to thank you for giving us the opportunity to partner with you last week at Expo West. We had a great time putting on the event and because of your efforts, about 100,000 meals will be distributed in the Los Angeles area to help families and children who desperately need the food! Pretty amazing! Thank you again for all your efforts and work to put on this event. I am truly grateful for all of you.” Anthony Kasper, Director, Relationship Development
