RESTON, Va., October 28, 2021 /CSRwire/ – Science Applications International Corp. (NYSE: SAIC) today announced the  company raised more than $385,000 to combat food insecurity in America during Hunger Action Month in  September – the equivalent of more than 3.8 million meals for those in need. 

Employees of SAIC contributed over $205,000 through a variety of fundraising activities and direct donations, with  the remainder of the total amount coming from company contributions. The total represents the most raised by the  company in the eight years it has partnered with Feeding America® to help provide meals to people in need, address  food waste, and raise awareness of the issue of hunger.  

Throughout the month, SAIC employees hosted and participated in events designed to raise money for Feeding  America while increasing awareness of hunger in their local communities. Employees volunteered at local food banks  and food pantries, including many that are members of the Feeding America network of 200 food banks and 60,000  food pantries and meal programs. Feeding America’s mission has taken on additional urgency this year due to the  COVID-19 pandemic, which has exacerbated hunger in America and around the world. According to the United  States Department of Agriculture, 38 million Americans – including nearly 12 million children – face hunger in  America.

“Not only did SAIC’s employees set new records for financial contributions, teams of employees across the country  donated their time and energy to engage and give back to their communities,” said SAIC CEO Nazzic Keene. “Our  employees supported food outreach engagements in Huntsville, San Diego, Orlando, Oklahoma City and  Washington, DC, including fundraising virtual events, leadership engagement, and sponsorships for physical activities  like biking and running. Food insecurity in America continues to present difficult challenges across the country and  has been exacerbated by the pandemic. I am grateful to all of the SAIC employees who went the extra mile to help  people in need.”
