(NYSE:SAIC) today announced the company raised more than $350,000, equivalent to more than 3.5 million meals*, to combat food insecurity during Hunger Action Month in September. Through SAIC's partnership with Feeding America®, SAIC's contribution will provide meals to people in need, address food waste and promote awareness of the issue of hunger in America.
"Our employees not only raised funds for those facing hunger, they volunteered in their communities to raise awareness about food insecurity," said Nazzic Keene, Chief Executive Officer at SAIC. "Each year, our organization looks forward to Hunger Action Month, because it's an opportunity to come together and make an impact to help those who are struggling to secure food for their families. We have partnered with Feeding America for nine years and each year, I am more and more thankful for our employees and their dedication to end hunger in America."
SAIC employees contributed more than $174,000 through a variety of creative fundraising activities and direct donations. SAIC also made corporate donations in addition to employee's contributions.
