Los Angeles Regional Food Bank is among more than 85 food banks across 37 states who will be able to restock their shelves to ensure at-risk kids do not go hungry this summer thanks to Caliber Collision’s 2019 Rhythm Restoration Food Drive, which collected more than $900,000 – or 5.4 million meals – in donations in April and May.
According to Feeding America, 22 million children rely on the National School Lunch Program to provide free and reduced-price meals during the school year. When school lets out, these daily meals go away, prompting Caliber’s 20,000 teammates to serve their communities by raising cash and food donations through car shows, motorcycle rallies, golf tournaments, dunk tanks and other giving opportunities.
“We set a lofty goal of raising 5 million meals in 2019. Our teammates challenged themselves, our business partners, friends in the community and each other by collecting more than 5.4 million meals across more than 1,100 locations,” said Steve Grimshaw, CEO of Caliber Collision. “I am proud of the passion and commitment of our teammates living our purpose of ‘Restoring the Rhythm of Your Life.’”
Over the past eight years, Caliber’s annual food drive has become one of the largest food drives in the U.S. This year’s results broke last year’s record of 4.3 million meals by almost 25%.
