12 Months of Giving: Stop Hunger Now

From fancy cars and expensive clothes to fine dining and exotic vacations, there are many ways you can spend your hard-earned dollars. And there is nothing wrong with rewarding yourself for a job well done — but what would happen if you rewarded someone else instead? JDi Data is continuing our commitment to  continuously thinking of others with our  12 months of Giving blog series.
This month our featured charity is Stop Hunger Now organization, an international hunger and relief organization that coordinates the distribution of food and other life-saving aid around the world. JDi Data’s Client Services Manager, Bill Sileo participated with 100 other volunteers to package 10,286 meals!

The Stop Hunger Now mission is to end hunger in our lifetime by providing food and life-saving aid to the world’s most vulnerable and by creating a global commitment to mobilize the necessary resources. The assembly process combines rice, soy, dehydrated vegetables and a flavoring mix including 21 essential vitamins and minerals into small meal packages. These meal packages are shipped around the world to support school feeding programs and crisis relief. The food stores easily, transports quickly and has a shelf-life of two years.
