As part of CST Group’s ongoing pledge to helping those in the local community, the firm is proud to participate in Food for Others.
Since 1995, Food for Others has been helping struggling families in the Northern Virginia region by providing basic needs like food and shelter. Their mission is to distribute free food to community members in need, and to provide opportunities for people to volunteer their time and resources.
Food for Others obtains much of its food through food rescue operations and food drives. Staff and volunteers pick up good food that would otherwise be thrown away by local grocery stores and other retail food establishments. The food is brought to the warehouse for temporary storage, including refrigeration as appropriate.
Food drives provide most of the organization’s non-perishable food. Local merchants, the USDA, food drives, and crop harvests provide the food; volunteers and staff provide the hands; and charitable contributions and fundraising events provide the funds.
“Every day thousands of people go hungry in just our local community,” said Kathy Jensen, Partner at CST Group. “We’re honored to support such an outstanding organization in their effort to closing the hunger gap.”
