Another boost in the fight against hunger in Greater Washington, D.C.

We're committed to supporting our employees' health and safety and to addressing our local communities' most critical needs. That's why we've donated to local hunger-relief organizations on behalf of each employee who received a COVID-19 vaccine or booster and/or a flu shot.* In addition, employees are doubling the impact of their personal donations to fight hunger with our matching gifts program.

Through this effort, our team in Greater Washington, D.C. recently presented Kitchen of Purpose with a check for $80,000. We're proud to be able to help our community as we work together to move forward.

Crowdfunding for Black and Brown women-identifying entrepreneurs

In 2016, Shelly Omilade Bell founded Black Girl Ventures (BGV) as a way to help Black and Brown women-identifying entrepreneurs find funding and financial advice. At BGV pitch events, Black women entrepreneurs have three minutes to present their ideas. Audience members can then back the ones they like through Raisify.co, the organization’s crowdfunding platform. To date, BGV has held more than 45 pitch events in a dozen cities and raised more than $1 million for 600-plus participants.
