The company’s annual match campaign will help provide 5 million meals to families and individuals experiencing hunger
For the 12th consecutive year, Ameriprise Financial, Inc. (NYSE: AMP) will match donations to Feeding America® (up to $250,000) to help the more than 34 million people in America who lack consistent access to food to live healthy and comfortable lives. With the Ameriprise match, each dollar donated through October 31 will help provide 20 meals* (double the standard donation) to families and individuals in need. Participation is easy and open to the public: visit www.feedingamerica.org/ameriprise to give online.
“Food insecurity is a persistent issue that impacts every community across the country,” said Brian Pietsch, head of community relations at Ameriprise. “Feeding America is a powerful and efficient nationwide network of local food banks that serves millions of individuals and families. They partner with retailers, farmers and manufactures to get food to people who need it while simultaneously working to address the root causes of hunger. We are proud to support their mission and encourage all who can to participate in our matching campaign.”
Since establishing a partnership with Feeding America in 2009, Ameriprise advisors, employees and clients have helped provide more than 121 million meals and volunteered more than 384,000 hours to support Feeding America and other hunger-relief organizations nationwide. The Ameriprise matching campaign was established in 2010 to encourage additional donations to Feeding America. In total, the campaign has helped provide approximately 227 million meals to people facing hunger across the U.S.
In addition to the matching campaign, Ameriprise is partnering with Feeding America for its 14th annual National Days of Service, which will be on November 2, 2023. This nationwide volunteer effort will bring together thousands of Ameriprise employees, advisors, and clients ahead of the holiday season to help people facing hunger.
"Millions of people are often forced to make difficult decisions between putting food on the table or paying for other necessities like rent, medicine or utilities. With Ameriprise’s deep commitment to hunger relief, we are making progress on our goal to end hunger," said Lauren Biedron, Senior Vice President of Corporate Partnerships at Feeding America.
