In each of our regions, Huntington colleagues help support their neighbors in need by volunteering at food banks, prepping meals for seniors, and providing food to veterans in need. Our colleagues participate in charitable food distribution programs to help ensure that people experiencing food insecurity get the sustenance they need.
- In Pennsylvania, colleagues assist with the Greater Pittsburgh Community Food Bank's program called The Market, which serves as the organization’s on-site pantry open to the public for shopping and online orders. The Greater Pittsburgh Community Food Bank serves 11 counties in Southwestern Pennsylvania, two of which sit in the top 10 counties with the highest food insecurity rates.
- Broomfield FISH (Fellowship in Serving Humanity) in Colorado provides food, emergency financial assistance, and one-on-one mentoring support to Broomfield residents in need. Over half of the individuals FISH helps are children under the age of 18. Huntington volunteers have worked in the organization’s FISH Marketplace Pantry to prepare thousands of pounds of food donations for shoppers in need of proper nourishment.
- Unfortunately, over 13,000 military Veterans in the state of West Virginia are without enough food to eat. To address this issue, Huntington provided funding to help expand the Mountaineer Food Bank’s Veterans Table Feeding Program, which supplies shelf-stable and fresh food boxes for disadvantaged veterans and their families.
- Several members of our board of directors and executive leadership team, including CEO Steve Steinour, joined more than 20 colleagues at Gleaners Community Food Bank of Southeastern Michigan. The group packed 480 food boxes for the organization's Commodity Supplemental Food Program, which helps to improve the health of low-income seniors.
