Ball's 'Let's Can Hunger' Far Surpasses Million Meals Goal
Indiana Ag Connection - 05/19/2017

Ball Corporation employees stepped up to help address food insecurity in North America during the company's 2017 "Let's Can Hunger" food drive, collecting a record 269,655 pounds of canned food and donating more than $332,000 that amounts to more than 1.5 million meals for those in need in communities where Ball operates in the U.S., Canada and Mexico.

The engagement and commitment from employees in Ball's corporate, packaging and aerospace offices throughout the "Let's Can Hunger" campaign made it possible to deliver safe and nutritious food in more than 40 communities.

The food collected, combined with employee donations, the Ball Corporation match and The Ball Foundation's dollar per pound match of food, will benefit more than 40 nonprofit organizations that improve local access to sufficient food resources for individuals and families in need. According to national statistics, one in eight people in America face hunger.

"Providing 1.5 million meals to our communities was a tremendous effort and demonstrates the generosity of the Ball family," said Chris Chavez, director of global corporate citizenship and corporate relations at Ball. "Our communities can count on us to make a positive difference in many ways. With nearly 50 million Americans struggling to put food on the table, Let's Can Hunger is our commitment to bring nutritious food and other necessities to those who need it."
