Foresters Financial Celebrates 150 Years of Protecting Families by Partnering with US Hunger to Provide 150,000 Meals to Families in Need

“At Foresters, we have been providing peace of mind and security to our members for 150 years,” said Matt Berman, President and CEO of Foresters. “This anniversary is an opportunity to reflect on that purpose, and what better way to celebrate than by giving back to those in need. Partnering with US Hunger to create these meal kits is a powerful testament to our members’ commitment and our commitment to building stronger, healthier communities around the world North America.”

About 500 Foresters members attending the annual Foresters Leadership Development Conference at the Renaissance Orlando Hotel gathered to build meal kits, packaging dry ingredients to make Jambalaya, the most popular USH menu choice. The meal kits were built and loaded for delivery to USH within two hours.

“As a community-driven partner that encourages and encourages its members to help others, Foresters Financial is an ideal partner to help us move the needle on solving food and nutrition inequality,” said Rick WhittedCEO of USH.
