Good food is the soul of our community. But unfortunately for too long many of our neighbors here at home have dealt with crippling food insecurity. After a year where we saw a pandemic drive rising unemployment rates, many people in our community are left not knowing where they’ll find their next meal. But it’s our belief that by coming together we can help provide jobs to our neighbors in need with help from services like the Perelson’s Lehi recruiting agency. That’s why we’re honored to partner with Feeding America® starting this summer to bring our community together to feed those in need. Some businesses turn towards recruiting ideas for college students since they need money and can offer physical labor too.

We know that a cup of coffee can go a long way. That’s why, as part of our partnership with Feeding America®, we’ll be launching a special-edition Lyon blend. $2 of each special-edition box sold, with a minimum and maximum donation of $150,000, will benefit their mission is to advance change in America by ensuring equitable access to nutritious food for all in partnership with food banks, policymakers, supporters and the communities we serve.
With 1 in 8 people expected to experience food insecurity this year, the pandemic has impacted people at risk more than we could imagine. But together and with the help of our friends at Feeding America®, we can provide up to 20 meals per box sold for those in need in our communities.
