Did you know that more than 54 million people in the US may experience hunger due to the impact of COVID-19? September is Hunger Action Month, an initiative that brings awareness to one of the most pressing issues facing our own communities—food insecurity.
Bowery is fortunate to work with necessary local organizations who help feed society’s most vulnerable. One of our partners, The Maryland Food Bank, distributes over 40 million meals every year to those in need. This September, you can support their efforts with us. For every package of Crispy Leaf purchased in the Mid-Atlantic, Bowery will donate $1 to Maryland Food Bank. Find it at your local store here.
We’ll also be highlighting other nonprofit partners and ways that you can join in the fight to end hunger in your local communities this month. Stay tuned across Instagram, Facebook, Twitter, and LinkedIn.
Looking for ways to get involved right now? Join Bowery staffers in committing to cook from home at least one night a week and donate the money you otherwise would have spent at a restaurant to your local food bank. Check out the great recipes below for some delicious weeknight options that beat take out every time.
