Gordian Dynamics Makes a Difference this Holiday Season!

The holiday season is here once again. As we look around at our streets lined with twinkling lights and beautiful holiday decorations, not only are we filled with warmth and love but we are reminded what the holidays are truly about, giving.

The Gordian Dynamics team came together to help make a difference in our communities by partnering with our local Food Banks. Our Southern California and Arizona offices worked together (as well as partnered with our office buildings) to collect a variety of health conscious canned and dried goods. These food donations will directly help feed over 200,000 people.

According to DoSomething.org, the USDA defines “food insecurity” as the lack of access, at times, to enough food for all household members. In 2011, households with children reported a significantly higher food insecurity rate than households without children: 20.6% vs. 12.2%. Here are a few additional facts about hunger in America:

  • 1 in 6 people in America face hunger.
  • 49 million Americans struggle to put food on the table.
  • In the US, hunger isn’t caused by a lack of food, but rather the continued prevalence of poverty.
  • More than 1 in 5 children is at risk of hunger. Among African-Americans and Latinos, it’s 1 in 3.
  • 40% of food is thrown out in the US every year, or about $165 billion worth. All of this uneaten food could feed 25 million Americans.
