BigOven Supports #GivingTuesday with Feeding America

#GivingTuesday takes place on Tuesday, December 1st, 2015. BigOven will be donating all revenue earned that day to Feeding America, a network of over 200 food banks leading the fight against hunger in the United States. Last year, with your help, we were able to fund over 15,000 meals for the needy.

What is Giving Tuesday?

In 2013, Bill and Melinda Gates created the concept of “Giving Tuesday” as a natural successor to “Black Friday” and “Cyber Monday” — a day centered on charitable work and giving back to the community.

BigOven is proud to participate in Giving Tuesday 2015 by donating all earned revenue that day to Feeding America, America’s leading hunger-relief charity, which helps serve 12 million children and 7 million senior citizens.

About Feeding America

In many ways, the United States is the land of plenty, but for 1 in 7 people in America, hunger can be an everyday reality. These are often hardworking adults, children, and seniors—some could be your neighbors—who simply cannot make ends meet and struggle to put food on the table. The Feeding America nationwide network of food banks is the nation’s largest domestic hunger-relief organization. Together, it provides food to more than 46.5 million people, including 12 million children and 7 million seniors through food pantries and meal programs. Give hope today, give a meal.

My eldest son and I volunteer at our local food bank here in Seattle, and I get to see the tremendous affect Feeding America has on the community. It takes incredible logistical coordination to organize and source food, break bulk, package, and distribute fresh and nutritious foods to those in need.

Charity Navigator rates Feeding America, a BBB-accredited charity, with a 98% efficiency rate — in other words, 98 cents of every dollar Feeding America goes back to into the programs that help advance Feeding America’s mission.

Make a contribution to the leading hunger-relief organization in the United States today.

Giving is an opportunity to help create the better world we all want. We humbly thank you all of our cooks, partners, and employees around the world, and wish you the very best holiday season!
