Marathon Consulting Participating in the Hunger Heroes Corporate Food Frenzy
Marathon Consulting, LLC, a Coastal Virginia-based provider of Information Technology (IT) and Digital Marketing solutions, is proud to announce we have joined the Foodbank of Southeastern Virginia and the Eastern Shore’s “Heroes Justice League.” Being a member of the Heroes Justice League means participating in the Hunger Heroes Corporate Food Frenzy, and taking a leadership role in the elimination of hunger in our community. Marathon has been a long-time supporter of the Foodbank, and over the years has donated funds equivalent to 56,000 meals for the Foodbank’s distribution programs.
“The Hunger Heroes Corporate Food Frenzy provides the Foodbank with a unique opportunity to galvanize the business community around our efforts to eliminate hunger,” said Ruth Jones Nichols, CEO, Foodbank of Southeastern Virginia and the Eastern Shore. “Marathon Consulting has been a longstanding partner, and we appreciate their willingness to include this campaign in their corporate social responsibility initiatives as we work to provide meals for food insecure families in our community."
About Foodbank of Southeastern Virginia and the Eastern Shore
For over 35 years, the Foodbank of Southeastern Virginia and the Eastern Shore has provided over 290 million meals to those in our community who face hunger. Through our programs, facilities, and large network of community partners, we “eliminate hunger” on a daily basis for many. However, we understand that our current work addresses hunger for individuals in the short term. It does not address the root causes which force individuals to return to a food pantry again and again. This understanding has led to the creation of a new three (3)-year strategic plan aimed to move Hampton Roads closer to achieving the mission of eliminating hunger for those we serve – not only for the day or for the week, but for a lifetime.
