Not having enough food leaves you running on empty to complete even the simplest of tasks, but Enterprise is here to help people fill their tank. In 2016 the Enterprise Rent-A-Car Foundation launched one of the largest donations aimed at fighting hunger – celebrating the company’s 60th anniversary by committing $60 million to address food insecurity around the globe.
Although there is enough food produced to feed the population, one in nine people still go to bed on an empty stomach, according to the World Food Programme. In the U.S. alone, 41 million people face hunger, including nearly 13 million children and more than five million seniors, according to Feeding America.
The gift will only help us fight hunger where it currently exists, but also will help organizations build programs to serve growing food-insecure populations.
