International Paper Recycling team members recently volunteered with FeedMore, central Virginia’s core hunger relief organization. East region plant general managers and Richmond recycling sales representatives worked to prepare, portion and package afternoon meals at the Bayard Community Kitchen for children in the local area. The kitchen serves 4,000 meals a day for the Kids Cafe and Meals on Wheels programs. The meals are homemade and based on the availability of fresh, locally-sourced ingredients.
“Not only was it a fun team building event but it was an honor having my east region peers come along side and serve my local community,” said Danny Peck, plant general manager, Richmond Recycling. “There is a lot of need in Central Virginia; one out of every nine individuals in the service area is food insecure.”
Feed More serves clients who are distributing food through more than 250 nonprofit and community partners.
