The Gerber Finance Foundation is committed to moving communities forward. “Gerber Gives Back,” our employee-driven volunteer program, enables our team to dedicate time to volunteer and make a difference. By leveraging our expertise and resources, we provide relief from food insecurity for hundreds of kids in our surrounding communities.
Through our foundation’s efforts, over 25,000 meals have been distributed, giving children in need access to food on days when school meals are not available. Gerber Finance employees have volunteered more than 450 hours.
For our inaugural program, we partnered with HOPE Community Services of New Rochelle to create “HOPE-Full Kids,” providing breakfast and lunch for children in need during school holidays. To date, the “HOPE-Full Kids” program has provided more than 25,000+ meals to children in need.
Our volunteer program, “Gerber Gives Back,” offers employees the opportunity to take time away from the office and volunteer together towards a greater good. Once a quarter, employees go out in teams to agencies surrounding our New York City headquarters.
We work with the North Shore Holiday House, which hosts a free summer camp for girls ages 7-11 from families who meet the USDA guidelines for free or reduced lunch. The Gerber Finance Foundation sponsors a salad bar for the summer, ensuring campers access to fresh produce, as well as weekly barbecues for campers and staff.
Thank you for supporting the Gerber Finance Foundation programs. Your contribution will support our work toward ending childhood food insecurity.
