The Caliber family of brands, including Caliber Auto Glass, Caliber Collision and Caliber Auto Care, kicked off its 12th Annual Restoring You™ Food Drive on Monday, April 10, as part of the company’s Restoring You™ platform focusing on combatting childhood food insecurity across the country.
According to a Caliber news release, approximately 22 million children in the U.S. rely on daily free or reduced-price school lunches for their main meal. Those meals then disappear in the summer months while kids are on vacation. Furthermore, Caliber cites a recent study in writing that food insecurity could increase as grocery costs rise and COVID-19-era Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program benefits come to an end.
“As a purpose-driven company, Caliber is embarking on our 12th annual Restoring You™ Food Drive and seeking the support of our communities,” said Caliber chief people officer David Dart. “This year’s goal is to donate 4 million meals to local food banks across the country, and we believe that is achievable with the help of our incredible family of Caliber teammates, our customers and valued business partners.”
Caliber’s program began in 2011 and has since seen the donation of more than 24 million meals.
