Cushman & Wakefield Volunteers at Local Food Bank

10/17/2019
Cushman & Wakefield Raleigh’s Cushman Cares group coordinated a volunteer event at the Food Bank of Central and Eastern North Carolina, partnering with other local companies to sort and package sweet potatoes.

Raleigh Food Bank

Together we packaged 10,000 lbs. of sweet potatoes totaling 8,333 meals for families in need. Food packaged at the Food Bank is typically received 24 hours after packaging.

Cushman & Wakefield Food Bank VolunteersEstablished in 1980, the Food Bank is a nonprofit organization that has provided food for people at risk of hunger in 34 counties for over 35 years. The Food Bank serves a network of more than 800 partner agencies such as soup kitchens, food pantries, shelters, and programs for children and adults through distribution centers in Durham, Greenville, New Bern, Raleigh, the Sandhills (Southern Pines) and Wilmington. Last year, the Food Bank distributed 68.4 million pounds of food and non-food essentials through partner agencies, and $.97 of every dollar donated goes directly to the Food Bank programs.

Culture is at the heart of Cushman & Wakefield – we believe people should love what they do and who they work for. Giving back to the communities in which our team members live and work is a cornerstone of that culture and guiding principles.
