Knowledgent Cares Hosts Food Drive to Give Back for the Holidays

The holiday season is in full swing, and that means one thing – Knowledgent Cares’ annual holiday food drive! Each year, Informationists from across the firm come together to donate food to local communities in need. This year, Knowledgent Cares was able to help two local food banks in New Jersey and Boston!

Through the month of November, Knowledgent Cares raised about $1,400 in donations for food – which ended up being 850 pounds of food, and thousands of meals for those who need it.

Our crate of donations being weighed - it ended up clocking in at 423 pounds!

Knowledgent Cares is dedicated to giving back to our communities, so we chose to donate to two food banks local to our offices. Our chosen food banks this year were the Food Bank of Monmouth and Ocean Counties in Neptune, New Jersey and the Greater Boston Food Bank in Boston.

The Food Bank of Monmouth and Ocean Counties distributes over 10 million meals annually through their network of over 300 feeding programs, and also works towards long-term solutions to the chronic problem of food insecurity through their Culinary Training Program and nutrition education.

The Greater Boston Food Bank dedicates their work to distributing enough food to provide at least one meal a day to those in need.
