Chestnut Hill Senior Living Recognizes National Food Bank Day

Author: LaRon Harris, Culinary Director

To recognize National Food Bank Day on September 2nd, Chestnut Hill 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 Worthington Resource Pantry. I chose this food bank because it is close to where I live and a great opportunity to give back to my local community. We will be donating canned soup, canned tomatoes, cereal, and healthy snacks.

I feel it is important to donate to our local food bank. You never know when someone is in need and it is good to know that there are resources out there when you need them. Good nutrition is important, especially for children. Some of them do not have a lot to eat. They need some good nutrition for going to school and at restful sleep.

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.
