Millions of Americans struggle with hunger every day. Many live in our communities. Hunger Free Communities is a BE Kind initiative committed to helping feed families. During the spring season, we're asking guests to make a donation to help provide Bob Evans Farmhouse Feast meals to families in need. (In 2012 we raised more than $230,000!) Bob Evans has already contributed $50,000 to support Mid-Ohio Foodbank's mission of providing fresh produce to hungry people. An estimated three to six billion pounds of fresh produce grown each year in America does not make it to market. Mid-Ohio Foodbank is a national leader in the effort to get more of that fresh produce from farmers' fields to the plates of America's hungry families. And through our ongoing Harvest Program, we'll continue to help feed local families every day. In 2013 alone, we've supplied more than 10 million meals to our neighbors in need.
Our motto has always been, “Treat strangers like friends and friends like family.” Our hope is that you will join us in doing the same to help end hunger in our communities.
