Company surpasses 200,000 meal mark in its fight on world hunger and humanitarian relief
VIENNA, VA – NT Concepts, a data and technology innovator for the intelligence and defense communities, announced today that it has exceeded its 2022 goal by packaging and donating 120K meals to fight food insecurity and world hunger. This year’s total brings the company’s tally up to 221,084, or 22% of their one million meal goal.
The Million Meals Challenge (MMC), launched in 2021 by #NTC_GivesBack, is a company-wide initiative that encourages employee participation and community involvement through two-hour Flash Pack events. In partnership with local food banks and non-profit organizations such as The Outreach Program and Generosity Feeds, NT Concepts has donated and helped distribute meals to those in need, including the war-torn people of Ukraine.
“Besides being a low-cost, high-yield way to provide nutritious meals, our Flash Packs are really easy events to participate in,” said Mikaela Goldrich, senior software engineer and champion of the MMC. “Everything is ready to go, and teams can pack over 15,000 meals in two hours or less. To see our employees, their friends, and families working together for such an important cause is truly inspirational.”
The success of the MMC is a testament to the generosity and dedication of NT Concepts employees and community partners. The company plans to continue the challenge until it reaches its goal of donating one million meals.
“We recently organized a Flash Pack in Butler, PA, supporting The Kids’ Weekend Backpack Program,” said Craig Harry, project manager and #NTC_GivesBack cohort member. “Ensuring that younger students have access to nutritious meals at no charge outside of their regular school programs helps our entire community and reduces some of the stress that food insecurity brings to a family.
NT Concepts encourages other companies and individuals to join their efforts in fighting hunger. Visit the company’s website for more information on how you can get involved.
