Bel Brands Shows Community Support during the COVID-19 Crisis
Recognizing that food insecurity is an escalating challenge during this incredibly difficult time, Bel Brands USA has provided donations to the Greater Chicago Food Depository, Northern Illinois Food Bank, MealsOnWheels Chicago, and GENYOUth ‘s “For School’s Sake” initiative. These organizations are on the front lines of feeding families, seniors, individuals, and school children with the most need right now, and we applaud them.
During such a difficult time for everyone, our company is fortunate to be in a position to help feed the wonderful families and individuals in need, right in our Chicago area community. The food banks in our city and around the world do extraordinary work everyday to feed those with the greatest need, and their work is even more challenging at this time. To further show our support for their efforts, we donated 10,000 cases of our cheese products to the Northern Illinois Food Bank and 2,600 cases of our snack products to the Greater Chicago Food Depository. Also, to provide some much-needed encouragement and nourishment to the outstanding healthcare workers at Northwestern Memorial Hospital, we donated 10,000 cases of our The Laughing Cow round boxes of cheese.
To all the organizations who are working tirelessly to care for the most vulnerable citizens in our community that have been impacted by COVID-19, we thank you and we stand with you. Your commitment is truly inspiring and we are proud to do our part to support your extraordinary efforts. On behalf of our company and our employees, we thank you all. We’re all in this together.
