Crystal D Packs More Than 30,000 Meals to Help Feed Starving Children
St. Paul, Minnesota-based Crystal D, a leading supplier of corporate recognition awards and plaques, announced company employees packed 30,240 meals through the Feed My Starving Children organization in Eagan, Minn., on Sept. 21. This number surpassed Crystal D’s goal to pack 30,000 meals during the 75-minute time frame. The number of meals packed is enough food to feed 83 children every day for one year.
This is Crystal D’s fourth-annual participation in the Feed My Starving Children meal-packing program. Last year, Crystal D packed 27,216 meals for the organization. Each meal includes nutrient-rich dehydrated vegetables, soy, rice and chicken flavoring. Feed My Starving Children distributes food to children throughout the world including the Ukraine, Brazil, Africa and Haiti.
“Participating in a number of community outreach programs is an important part of Crystal D’s culture,” said Crystal D president, Chuck Dahlgren. “Feed My Starving Children is a great organization that provides life-saving food to children all over the world. As a company, Crystal D feels that we really can make a difference by volunteering for this great organization.”
In addition to volunteering time, Crystal D employees can also choose to deduct the hours worked from their paychecks as a monetary donation to the cause. Said business development specialist, Tessa Trumble, “It is a great feeling to know that we can make such an impact on the lives of children all over the world.”
