From Lori Mabardi
SVP, Research & CaterCares Creator
Just a few short months after launching CaterCares, a group of nearly 50 volunteers from JLL and ezCater joined forces to celebrate our partnership together and give back at The Greater Boston Food Bank, the largest hunger-relief organization in New England! Together, we sorted and packed more than 10,000 pounds of food which will create more than 8,500 meals in our community.
We studied food labels together, learned the difference between a protein bar and a snack bar, became experts in beverage sorting and developed an eye for products that don’t make the cut. We also made new friends, laughed a lot, and most importantly saw firsthand what impact each dollar we donate can have in this real fight against hunger. Thank you to each and every one of our volunteers!
We also had the opportunity to present The Greater Boston Food Bank with our “CaterCares kick off check” in the amount of $1432.10, enough to create 4,296 meals for those in need in our local community.
This donation would not have been possible without the early participation of our founding members – those who eagerly joined CaterCares during our pilot last fall including Anchor Capital and Unispace among others. It also would not have been possible without our first landlord partner Morgan Stanley. Together, you helped contribute to our early success and we’d like to thank you for everything you have done already and everything you will continue to do in the fight to end childhood hunger.
We’d also like to welcome two new firms – Entertainment Cruises and LLM Design to CaterCares, and are excited to announce that we now have 12 CaterCares member firms and growing!
We are currently rolling out CaterCares throughout New England and look forward to our continued growth. If you’d like to learn more about the program, feel free to contact me or visit www.catercares.com.
