FedEx O&SS Hunger Challenge

Nov 21, 2016

We’ve all done this hundreds or thousands of times: You are kind of hungry. You want something but are not sure just what. You wander into the kitchen and throw open the pantry or refrigerator door and stand there scratching your head. You stare at opened cereal boxes, some chips, a half-eaten bag of cookies, rice, and the usual cans of vegetables, tuna and Chef Boyardee. You start to feel a little frustrated, maybe a little angry because there just “isn’t anything to eat!”

But what if there really wasn’t anything to eat?

Two team members carried out the Purple Tote Bag delivery to the charity we choose to exist, People to People Food Pantry in Nanuet, NY, the largest food Pantry in Rockland County and the only one open five days a week.
