All over the world, there are hard working families struggling to put food on the table. An estimated 870 million people worldwide do not have access to a sufficient supply of nutritious and safe food according to the United States Department of Agriculture (USDA). Not only is a healthy diet necessary to prevent diseases and improve quality of life, but it’s required to survive. As a small company, we may not have the resources to supply food across the globe, but we can start right here in our local community.
In light of the upcoming holiday season, it’s troubling to know “1 in 6 Central Floridians are struggling with the reality of hunger” (Second Harvest Food Bank). With the power to give back, Orchid is organizing a month-long Food Drive in partnership with Second Harvest Food Bank of Central Florida. By being part of the solution, we can provide as many families as possible with full hearts and bellies on Thanksgiving Day and beyond.
Our HR team is dedicated to organizing the Food Drive and making it easy for employees to donate. Each team within our company has their own personalized donation box just for them. As the boxes fill up, we replace them with new ones. We look forward to inspiring and challenging our employees to reach our goal and promoting a culture of gratitude and team work.
From the Orchid family to yours,
