(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.
