Fiat Chrysler Automobiles is expanding on its partnership with No Kid Hungry to help serve more meals to hungry children.
Originally, the Chrysler brand announced a program in mid-March to provide meals to kids in need with the sale of each Chrysler Pacifica through the end of June. With each Pacifica sold,Chrysler will donate enough to provide up to 500 meals to kids in need with the goal of providing up to 10 million meals.
Later in March, the automaker committed to supply additional meals, up to one million, to school children affected by COVID-19. No Kid Hungry is providing emergency grants to schools, food banks and community groups all across the country, and diverting staff and resources to the hardest-hit communities.
No Kid Hungry’s corporate sponsors include Citi, Grubhub, Arby’s, Discovery, Walmart, Aldi, Amazon, Food Lion, General Mill’s, Kellogg’s, Kimpton, Nestle, Newman’s Own, Smithfield, Verizon and Whole Foods.
In addition to its national partnership with No Kid Hungry, FCA has partnered with more than 40 local nonprofits providing meals to children in the communities around its principal manufacturing plants in Illinois, Indiana, Michigan and Ohio. Similar programs are underway in Canada and Mexico.
FCA isn't the only automaker focusing on hunger in its pandemic relief efforts. Subaru of America committed in April to provide 50 million meals nationwide to people impacted by the coronavirus via a new partnership with Feeding America.
Subaru’s North America headquarters is getting support from its two regional independent distributors, Subaru of New England and Subaru Distributors Corp.
