Breaking Bread, a program created to help feed the hungry in the communities Armstrong employees’ live in, work in and provide service is celebrating a dozen years of supporting local food banks! Armstrong originally launched the program to help feed neighbors in need on March 8, 2010.
This March 8, Armstrong is marking the occasion as Breaking Bread Day! You’re invited to be a part of the celebration at your local Armstrong store. Just as we’ve been doing for 12 years, all Armstrong community locations will be collecting non-perishable food items to help fight food insecurity.
Make a food donation at your local Armstrong store on Breaking Bread Day, and receive a special gift!
Hunger is a problem in all the communities that Armstrong serves and the Breaking Bread initiative strives to help more than simply donating food. Armstrong is committed to fighting hunger through a four-pronged approach:
The initial goal of the Breaking Bread program was to support local food programs and raise awareness about community food banks and soup kitchens. In 2018, Armstrong added Avenge Hunger Month during September to help in its awareness efforts for local food programs. Over the past four years, Armstrong has helped to collect more than 160,000 pounds of food and nearly $75,000 in monetary donations to help support local feeding programs through Avenge Hunger Month events.
Armstrong is proud to be active in the communities throughout the six states we serve, making Breaking Bread one of Armstrong’s most important community services. For a list of community food programs in your area, visit armstrongonewire.com/breakingbread.
