"Through The Allstate Foundation's partnership with Feeding America, we are able to help people when they need it the most," stated Matthew Winter, president of Allstate Auto, Home and Agencies. "As a part of the response to Hurricane Isaac, we have been able to deliver thousands of pounds of food to the Gulf Coast region. While the effort is not over, communities impacted by this disaster can rest assured that local food banks are equipped to help aid them and their families."
In 2012, Allstate and The Allstate Foundation have been able to provide nearly $500,000 in support to Feeding America and deliver more than 1,000,000 meals to those in need—a number that continues to grow. Additionally, Allstate is committed to providing more than $1 million in support for Feeding America to address the needs of disaster victims over the next four years.
