“With just one snack box purchase, United customers can help provide nine meals for a family in need,” said Lynda Coffman, United’s vice president of food services. “Nearly 50 million Americans are facing hunger, and with operations in more than 230 cities in the U.S., we recognize the direct affect hunger has on our communities.”

One dollar from each snack box purchase benefits Feeding America—the nation’s leading domestic hunger-relief organization. With its buying power, Feeding America can help provide nine meals for every $1 contributed.

Since 2009, United and its customers have contributed nearly $800,000 to help U.S. families in need through its partnership with Feeding America and its network of local food banks.
