To recognize National Food Bank Day on September 2nd, Cedar Trails Senior Living will be
participating in a canned food drive with a goal of bringing awareness to those that go hungry. As the Culinary Director, I am honored to be a part of this important day, held annually on the first Friday in September.
John van Hengel is credited with starting the first food bank in 1967 to redistribute food and
prevent the wastage of groceries by handing it out to the poor and hungry. National Food Bank Day is not only a reminder that no one should go to bed hungry, but also a day to honor those workers, volunteers, and food bank charities who work to distribute food year-around.
We are donating to Freeburg Food and Clothing Bank. I choose this location because they are an important part of the Freeburg community. We will be donating canned goods and non-perishable food items.
I feel it is important to donate to our local food bank. There is a need for the students in the Freeburg school district and their families. Good nutrition is important. It leads to a healthy mind, healthy body, and a happy community.
In the US alone, about 42 million people struggle with food insecurity. Our team is hopeful we
can make a positive impact on those numbers by supporting for our local food banks in honor of
National Food Bank Day. We will be delivering our non-perishable items on September 2nd and look forward to sharing with you all what a difference we all can make when we give a little.

They are the unsung heroes in our restaurants, and without them, we wouldn’t be able to operate at the level you’ve come to expect. National Waitstaff Appreciation Day was created by Fred Sirieix. He wanted to celebrate all waitstaff, […]

It is only natural that we experience both stress and anxiety in some form at some level. Stress is defined as any demand placed on your brain or physical body, while anxiety is specified as […]
