Vitalia Active Adult Community – North Olmsted Recognizes National Food Bank Day

Category: Senior Living

Author: Jacqui Romito, Culinary Director

To recognize National Food Bank Day on September 2nd, VITALIA Active Adult Community® – North Olmsted will be participating in a canned food drive with a goal of bringing awareness to those that go hungry. As the Culinary Director, I am honored to be a part of this important day, held annually on the first Friday in September.

John van Hengel is credited with starting the first food bank in 1967 to redistribute food and prevent the wastage of groceries by handing it out to the poor and hungry. National Food Bank Day is not only a reminder that no one should go to bed hungry, but also a day to honor those workers, volunteers, and food bank charities who work to distribute food year-around.

We are donating to the Cleveland Food Bank. I chose this location because it’s a local one that does great things for the Cleveland community. We will be donating canned and dry good items.

It’s important to donate to the food bank to help those who may need it. Hunger strikes all communities and all types of people. Being able to provide some relief is a great thing. Good nutrition is not only important for our physical well-being and health, but also our mental and emotional health. Everything starts with a good diet.

In the US alone, about 42 million people struggle with food insecurity. Our team is hopeful we can make a positive impact on those numbers by supporting for our local food banks in honor of National Food Bank Day. We will be delivering our non-perishable items on September 2nd and look forward to sharing with you all what a difference we all can make when we give a little.
