Nationwide associates across the country support Feeding America through food drives, monetary donations and volunteerism.
Joining the Fight Against Hunger
Fighting Hunger Is Everyone's Responsibility
Since 2000, Nationwide associates have donated more than 20 million meals to Feeding America food banks. In 2009, in support of Nationwide associates’ efforts, the Nationwide Insurance Foundation funded Feeding America for the first time.
In 2010, Feeding America awarded Nationwide Insurance the Group Volunteer Service of the Year award for our work with the Mid-Ohio Foodbank. During 2011, Nationwide associates accounted for 34% of the Columbus-based food bank's Operation Feed campaign donations, and 25% of its volunteers.
In 2013, the foundation’s gift to Feeding America was shared with 19 member food banks in communities where Nationwide associates live and work.
Nationwide has continued to strengthen its commitment to Feeding America with executives serving on 13 local food banks' boards.
Health incentive program fuels $100,000 donation
In February 2013, Nationwide celebrated the completion of a two-year employee health challenge with a $100,000 donation to Feeding America’s National Produce Program. Associates and spouses improved key health measures while supporting the fight against hunger.
The donation from Nationwide helps secure about 9.3 million servings of produce, which translates to about 2.5 million meals for families in need. Read more about the program in this press release.
