Allstate And The Allstate Foundation Help Prepare Local Food Banks For Disaster Response Through Renewed Feeding America Partnership

CHICAGO, July 30, 2014 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- Feeding America, the nation's largest hunger-relief organization, announced today The Allstate Foundation and Allstate Insurance Company, the nation's largest publicly held personal lines insurer, have renewed their commitment to Feeding America and pledged to donate up to $2 million in support of Feeding America's disaster relief efforts.

The announcement comes as Feeding America food banks across the country begin dealing with the busy summer weather season – from hurricanes along the coast to tornadoes in the Midwest to fires in the Southwest. During the past five years, the Feeding America network and its national corporate donors have provided more than 100 million pounds of emergency food and disaster relief supplies to individuals and families affected by disaster.

Allstate Insurance Company's commitment of $1 million enables Feeding America to build capacity in disaster preparedness and provide critical support if a disaster strikes. Additionally, The Allstate Foundation pledged up to $1 million to support the response efforts of member food banks in the event of significant natural disasters. As part of this commitment, the Foundation recently committed $250,000 to pilot an initiative among regional food banks to build capacity and preparedness.

"When dealing with the aftermath of a catastrophe, people should not have to worry about where their next meal will come from," said Matt Winter, president, Allstate Personal Lines, and Feeding America board member. "I am honored to be personally involved with this cause, and I am proud of the support Allstate is providing to help address this important need."

Allstate's commitment in the fight to end hunger goes beyond their monetary donations. Along with their philanthropic support, Allstate has also selected Feeding America as lead partner for its annual Week of Service. During this nationwide event, Allstate employees and agency owners partnered with local food banks to fight hunger in their communities by collecting food to feed more than 300,000 people in 2014.
