Rather than do the usual thing on an agency summer outing; head to some fancy destination, get trashed and begin to act like junior high school kids at a Taylor Swift concert, London-based MEC decided
to do something a bit more adult.
Rather than get pissed on their "summer away day," 500 MEC staffers, as part of the agency's "knead and feed" initiative, headed over to the home of the
Saracens Football Club to whip up some tasty meals for 5,000 of London's needy.
In a somewhat oddly-coded quote explaining MEC's involvement, MEC Managing Director Paul Hutchinson said
“At MEC, we aren’t about mouse
mats and behaviors written on the wall. We are about living and experiencing behaviors together.”
I guess that means that even the high and mighty snobs who work in advertising have
to mix and mingle with the less fortunate every once in a while. It's all good though. Everyone needs to eat.
