Feed the Children

We want to help Feed the Children end childhood hunger.

Our Role

We provide Feed the Children with the logistics services they need, including warehouse space and transportation, so they can focus on their primary goal of ending childhood hunger.

Did You Know?

More than 31 million children receive free or subsidized lunches during the school year leaving many kids hungry when school’s on recess. But through their Summer Food & Education Programs, Feed the Children aims to fix that by providing many local children with a lunch when school’s out of session. Americold donates storage and transportation capacity to support these summer programs.

Storage and Transportation Support

In 2015, Americold donated the capacities of more than 20 truckloads in support of Feed the Children Charities throughout the U.S.  We shipped almost one millions pounds of food and other essential items to over 5,000 deserving families in need of assistance. 

Associate Support

In February 2016 at Americold’s annual leadership conference, over 300 associates stuffed 500 backpacks with basic essentials and school supplies for local Atlanta schools. 

During the summer of 2016, over 60 Americold facilities around the country announced local Feed the Children campaigns, partnering with schools to provide backpacks and other essentials in preparation for the 2016-2017 school year. Americold’s corporate headquarters in Atlanta is partnering with Seaborn Lee Elementary School.

Homefront Harvest

One of Americold’s largest logistics donations is through Feed the Children's annual event to support veterans, Homefront Harvest.

We’re humbled to be part of this exciting event that takes place all across the country, getting to show our appreciation to our troops during Veteran’s Day week by giving them holiday meals and essential items.
