First thing this morning, Green BEAN Delivery made a donation of more than 3,450 pounds of fresh potatoes, onions, bananas, corn and peaches to Community Harvest Food Bank of Northeast Indiana. Green BEAN Delivery committed to donating 3 pounds of fresh produce to Community Harvest for every pledge made during Northeast Indiana Public Radio’s spring fund drive which ran from April 21st to the 29th. The initiative resulted in more than 1,000 pledges from generous listeners.
“We could not be happier about this donation from Green BEAN Delivery and Northeast Indiana Public Radio’s members,” said Jane Avery, executive director of Community Harvest Food Bank of Northeast Indiana. “Once again, our listeners stepped up to support two great causes: public radio and alleviating hunger,” said David Hunter, membership manager for Northeast Indiana Public Radio. “One year ago, we were ecstatic at the chance to partner with Green BEAN Delivery, and we’re very grateful for the company’s ongoing and generous commitment to these important causes in our community.”
Our goal of ensuring that everyone has access to healthy food is as simple as it is challenging,” said Matt Ewer, president and co-founder of Green BEAN Delivery. “In addition to partnering with local NPR affiliates, we also send regular deliveries of leftover food to our local food bank partners and encourage our members to feed the hungry members of their communities. It’s exciting to see the Fort Wayne community continue stepping up when called upon.”
Green BEAN Delivery is very proud of the work we do to alleviate hunger. What’s more, we’re able to help our regional food banks get more fresh and nutritious fruits and vegetables, which are often in limited supply.
