The Madison Senior Living Recognizes National Food Bank Day

Author: Joey Sadler, Culinary Director

To recognize National Food Bank Day on September 2nd, The Madison Senior Living 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 Grandview Assistance Program. I chose this food bank based on the recommendation of one of our residents. We will be donating canned goods and other non-perishable items.

I feel it is important to donate to our local food bank so they can continue to benefit community families that need it the most. Good nutrition is important because it promotes good health, body, and mind.

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.
