📅 Wed December 13, 2017 - National Edition
This year marks the ninth consecutive year PCL has helped provide local families with holiday meals and food security. Since 2009, PCL has donated more than $1 million to local food banks across the United States.
Although America is the world's largest producer of food, children and adults face hunger every day across the nation. With more than 42 million people struggling with hunger in the United States (according to Feeding America), PCL continues its fight to end hunger. In 2017, ten U.S. offices donated to local food banks for a total of $50,000.
“Our work with the food banks across the United States is one of the cornerstones of our community outreach efforts at PCL,” said Shaun Yancey, president and COO of PCL's U.S. operations. “Our extensive operations in these communities gives us a sense of responsibility to do everything we can to support them and help them thrive.”
