(New York, N.Y.) - QBE has awarded a $5,000 grant to Share Our Strength, a Washington D.C.-based organization dedicated to ending hunger in America.

According to QBE President and Chief Executive Officer John Rumpler, the grant is being given to further the QBE Foundation's mission of helping people live more independently, successfully and productively. "Without the assistance of this fantastic charity, people may not have the nutritious food they need to learn, grow and thrive," he said. "We are delighted our foundation grant will make a positive impact."

Share Our Strength works to end hunger and poverty in the United States and abroad by mobilizing industries and individuals, and creating community wealth, to promote lasting change. Through its No Kid Hungry campaign-a national effort to end childhood hunger in America-Share Our Strength ensures children in need are enrolled in effective federal nutrition programs, invests in community organizations fighting hunger, teaches families how to cook healthy, affordable meals, and builds public-private partnerships to end childhood hunger, at the state and city level.
