Voxware is proud to serve food bank customers across the United States. These organizations are on the front lines serving their communities and helping hungry families get back on their feet and pressure remains high. The food banks that use Voxware distribute almost a quarter billion pounds of food to over 2.5 million hungry Americans every year.
Voxware provides voice technology to six food banks, including the Regional Food Bank of Oklahoma, the Community FoodBank of New Jersey, the Greater Cleveland Food Bank, the Greater Boston Food Bank, the Houston Food Bank, and Harvesters Community Food Network in Kansas. These organizations are a vital resource and we are proud to help them achieve their missions and serve their communities.
Starting in 2016, for every pick completed using the Voxware VMS by food bank customers, Voxware will donate a set dollar amount to food bank customers. These donations will be distributed quarterly to help food banks with their day-to-day operations. Additionally, to increase the impact of the community partnership, Voxware will invite its cold storage, beverage and foodservice customers to match its donations by making cash or food donations to food banks in their local communities.
Food banks are experts at maximizing the impact of their donations. As one example: for every dollar the Community FoodBank of New Jersey receives in donations, it can serve $10 worth of food. During the holiday season, Voxware invites you to consider joining us by making a donation to your local food bank or soup kitchen where even small amounts can go a long way.
In the past, Voxware provided donations to both a local soup kitchen and to the Regional Food Bank of Oklahoma after a devastating tornado left many residents homeless and brought severe damage to the food bank facility. Through this new donation program Voxware hopes to help food banks serve more hungry families not just in times of disaster but on an ongoing basis.
