In 2011, we crossed paths with a new grassroots nonprofit organization, Nourish Now. Brett Meyers, Nourish Now’s Founder and Executive Director, had big aspirations of eliminating hunger throughout our area. Nourish Now is a non-profit food bank, specializing in food recovery to eliminate hunger for children, families, the elderly, and military veterans.
High Point Events & Catering has always strived to help give back to our neighbors in need. As we were searching for a consistent, reliable, and passionate organization, Nourish Now seemed like the perfect fit. Fortunately, the partnership has proven to be a success.
By teaming up with Nourish Now, our excess fresh food is recovered and distributed. In addition to the traditional food recovery opportunities, we have partnered during several disaster relief initiatives in which we catered. For example Hurricane Sandy of 2012 brought hundreds of relief workers to our area. We catered breakfast, lunch and dinner for over ten days. which led to over 15,000 recovered meals. Nourish Now went above and beyond with our dedicated staff to ensure all the excess food was donated in our area and coordinated over 10,000 meals that we catered in New Jersey.
We are honored to have donated over 100,000 meals to Nourish Now, instead of creating waste in landfills. We will continue to work with Nourish Now as our premiere non-profit in our continued fight to end hunger.
