Toeniskoetter Supports Hunger at Home
Today, with so many of our friends and neighbors suffering the economic fallout from the COVID pandemic, Toeniskoetter is proud to showcase the efforts of Hunger at Home, a local nonprofit best known for partnering with convention centers, hotels, stadiums and other large venues to distribute surplus food and supplies to charitable organizations serving those in need.
Since March 19th, Hunger at Home has produced and distributed well over 300,000 meals. Twice a week, a line of cars, often stretching a mile long, forms at the organization’s San Jose distribution center, where families can receive meals, bags of groceries, and Shelter in Place Kits from SHIP (a local nonprofit) containing essentials such as toilet paper, paper towels, and canned goods as well as puzzles, games, and other items for kids.
“It is heart-rending to see what this crisis has done to a whole swathe of workers,” says Chuck Toeniskoetter, a longtime supporter and Hunger at Home Board member. “But we have a wonderful community in San Jose that has always stepped up. I am proud of the work Hunger at Home has done here to fill the void, helping to put food on the table for so many who have nowhere else to turn.”
