Helping millions struggling with hunger by partnering with Feeding America.

One in eight people living in America today struggles with hunger. That’s about 40 million people, including more than 12 million children and five million seniors. Hunger knows no boundaries and it touches every community in the country, including our own.

That’s why Burke Energy is proud to announce our partnership with Feeding America, to help them put food on the table for millions. Our local teams and Feeding America will be working together to get people and families the nutrition that they need to live healthy lives, go to school, work and get through every day. Local food banks that we will be helping include:

  • Feeding Westchester
  • Regional Food Bank of Northeastern New York

Burke Energy teams will be working throughout the year, fundraising to keep Feeding America’s food bank program alive, volunteering to drive food donations, helping at food banks to deliver food to those in need and much more. These initiatives include:

  • BackPack: This program provides children receive bags filled with shelf-stable, nutritious food at school to take home for the weekends and school vacations. Containing wholesome, easy-to-prepare meals, the backpack is provided to eligible children free of charge and is distributed at the child’s school on a weekly basis during the entire school year (an average of 40 weeks).
  • School Pantry: This program provides groceries to children when parents or relatives are dropping off or picking up their children from school. Using school facilities to provide nutritious groceries for children and their families is a convenient and cost-effective solution to child hunger and, in some cases, is a bridge between families and schools.
  • Kids Café: Across the nation, these programs make free meals and snacks available to low-income children through a variety of existing community locations where children congregate, such as afterschool programs at public schools, Boys and Girls Clubs, and churches. In addition to providing meals to hungry kids, all Kids Cafe programs offer a safe place where—under the supervision of trustworthy staff—a child can get involved in educational, recreational and social activities.
  • Fresh for All Program – Traveling Market: This traveling farmer’s market visits low income neighborhoods on a weekly basis to distribute free fresh produce and dairy

Hunger exists in America, and you can be sure that your local Burke Energy team will continue to work with Feeding America, doing their best to reduce the numbers of those going hungry across the country.
