|Food presentation to be held at Hurst Bean Field|
Tues., Nov. 21 to kick off the 2017 Holiday Season
In continuing the firm’s long legacy of giving back to the community, Goelzer has committed to donating six skids of NK Hurst beans each year to reach its ultimate goal of providing one million meals to families in central Indiana. Since the program began in 2006, Goelzer has donated 430,000 NK Hurst meals to Gleaners.
The donation event will take place with representatives from Gleaners, Goelzer Investment Management, and NK Hurst Beans Tues., Nov. 21 at 11 am at the NK Hurst Bean Field located at 230 W. McCarty Street (directly across from Lucas Oil Stadium).
“Hundreds of thousands of families are still struggling to put food on their tables,” said John Elliott, president and CEO of Gleaners. “We’re committed to feeding them, but also looking at not just the amount of food we provide, but the quality and nutritional value of that food. The complex carbohydrates, protein and other nutrients in beans are of high value to those we serve.”
Gleaners Food Bank of Indiana, a member of the national Feeding America Network of food banks, was founded in a three-and-a-half car garage in 1980 with the purpose of fighting hunger in our community. On an annual basis, Gleaners provides food and critical grocery products for more than 260,000 people, providing more than 20 million meals.
