To coincide with the observance of National Hunger Awareness Day on June 3, Anthem Blue Cross and Blue Shield sponsored its third annual "Healthy Helpings" food drive to benefit local food banks.
The food drive ran from June 1 to 19. In just three weeks Anthem employees donated more than 1,000 pounds of food which the Connecticut Food Bank can make into 800 meals.
In addition to donating the employee food donations to the Connecticut Food Bank , which serves the New Haven area and two-thirds of the state, Anthem also presented $1,500 in Stop & Shop gift cards to both the Connecticut Food Bank and FoodShare, which serves the remaining one-third of the state. These two organizations will use the gift cards to augment the non-perishable donations with dairy, meat and fresh produce, or provide them to their clients so they can purchase those items for themselves.
