Nationwide has always been in the business of caring for people. Today is no different. We’re proud to say that our associates come together to make a real difference, and together with our partners, we’re helping to make the world a little bit better for all of us.
Together we are working to end hunger in America
The need is great
Hunger is a reality for one in eight Americans. These are often hard–working adults, children and seniors who simply can’t make ends meet and are forced to go without food for several meals or even days. This basic need that affects so many is why Nationwide lends its support.
Our giving history
In 1981, Nationwide participated in the Mid–Ohio Foodbank’s inaugural Operation Feed campaign — the largest grassroots corporate drive in central Ohio. Today, Nationwide’s support represents approximately 35 percent of the Columbus community’s Operation Feed campaign revenue and 17 percent of the food bank’s volunteers.
In 2009, Nationwide launched its national partnership with Feeding America. Our associates often take time during their work days to support hunger-relief efforts as teambuilding opportunities. Since 2000, Nationwide associates have raised more than 43.8 million meals* for Feeding America food banks.
More ways we partner
The Nationwide Foundation supports Feeding America, its National Produce Program and 22 of its member food banks across the nation, granting more than $16 million since 2000. Additionally, Nationwide executives serve on the boards of several Feeding America member food banks across the country.
