EatStreet not only rescues people from the dark depths of hunger, we love supporting the communities across the 250 cities we serve.
Just this year we’ve supported more than 50 events, resulting in millions of dollars raised and tens of thousands of people’s lives affected for the better. We’ve been longtime partners with Meals on Wheels, contributing a portion of EatStreet orders to the organization and delivering meals locally. For 2016, we were corporate sponsors for Ski for Cancer week in Madison (pictured in our header image), and the Rutgers Dance Marathon in New Brunswick, NJ, where students stay on their feet for 30 consecutive hours to benefit the families of children with cancer or blood disorders.
Our team works hand-in-hand with a plethora of truly awesome individuals on campuses to support exceptional experiences for everyone involved. We recently supported Relay for Life at the University of Illinois. Stephen Jan, the Director of Sponsorship for Colleges Against Cancer at U of I, witnessed firsthand the impact charitable causes can have. He said, “Relay was amazing! We had an overwhelming amount of food, all of which was donated, and we were able to feed over 1,200 people. I can’t begin to express how grateful our entire community is, and I hope the EatStreet team had a good time as well.”
With all that we’ve already done it would be easy to hang our pizza hat on a year well-done. However, we’re in the business of pushing ourselves. Below is a list of some of our upcoming events:
- The Glow Run benefiting mental health awareness (East Lansing, MI)
- Little 500 benefiting the Indiana University Student Foundation (Bloomington, IN)
- Relay for Life benefiting the American Cancer Society (Ithaca, NY and Dekalb, IL)
As proud as we are for being able to contribute, credit should really go out to all of these students and organizations for taking precious time to try and improve the lives of others in need.
