Hunger is a problem that affects communities across the country. Sprint employees have come together to help battle hunger and ensure that those less fortunate have food to eat.
Through the annual Sprint Feed the Need Food Drive, Sprint employees donate food and money to national hunger-relief agency Feeding America. In 2012, Sprint employees donated the equivalent of 795,000 meals — support that went back to those who needed it in the employees' own communities.
Sprint employees ongoing efforts to help battle hunger earned Sprint the prestigious Feeding America's 2011 Hunger's Hope Award for Group Volunteer Service. Feeding America is the nation's leading domestic hunger–relief charity, supplying more than two billion pounds of food and grocery products annually to 37 million Americans each year, including 14 million children and 3 million seniors through 200 network food banks.
"Sprint has been a strong supporter of hunger relief for many years, both locally and nationally," said Vicki Escarra, president and CEO of Feeding America. "The work of their employees is making a significant difference in the quality of life for those receiving food assistance throughout your community."
