The Kids Café and Totes of Hope - Children programs were designed specifically to serve balanced meals to children throughout the Denver metro community. Over this fiscal year, the Food Bank distributed 46.5 million pounds of food and non-food essentials to those in need.
“We truly value our partnership with Experient and all the great sponsors of Pack for Impact,” said Kim Ruotsala, Vice President of Development at the Food Bank. “[They] have made such an impact, providing nearly 430,000 meals over the past 15 years!”
Yurii Land, CMP, Strategic Account Manager with Experient, has chaired the event over the last five years. He and his Experient co-workers, who used sponsorship dollars to purchase the food, were joined by more than 60 Experient clients, hotel and supplier partners who packed 1,400 bags of food in just over one hour.
“I am honored to see our industry patrons and clients donate their time and money to such a worthy cause,” says Land. “In the 15 years we have been raising funds for the Food Bank, contributions to the Kid’s Café and Totes for Hope programs have totaled nearly $108,000.”
