Giving Tuesday 2013 (#GivingTuesday on Twitter) is Tuesday, December 3rd.
Earlier this year, Melinda and Bill Gates created the concept of “Giving Tuesday” as a natural successor to accompany the series of days through the Thanksgiving holiday — Thanksgiving, then “Black Friday” and “Cyber Monday.”
BigOven is proud to participate in Giving Tuesday 2013, by donating all revenue made during the day to FeedingAmerica.org, America’s leading hunger-relief charity, which helps serve over 14 million children and 3 million seniors.
About Feeding America
While America is a land of plenty, for 1 in 6 people in the United States, hunger is a reality.
FeedingAmerica partners with local food banks, helping to secure food from national organizations, communicate best practices across locations, inspiring over 200 member organizations to best serve their local communities. They provide low-income individuals and families with the fuel to survive and even thrive. The network members supply food to more than 25 million Americans each year. Serving the United States, the 200+ member food banks support 63,000 agencies that address hunger in all of its forms.
My oldest son and I volunteer at our local food bank here in Seattle a few times each year, and I see directly some of the great work that they do. It takes tremendous logistical coordination to organize and source food, break bulk, package it, distribute it, and distribute fresh and nutritious food to those in need.
CharityNavigator rates the BBB-accredited charity FeedingAmerica 64/70 in terms of efficiency and effectiveness; it’s the leading hunger-relief organization in the United States. Join us by making a contribution today!
Giving is an opportunity to help create the better world we all want.
We humbly thank all our cooks, partners and employees around the world, and wish you the very best holiday season!
