Taking care of each other is just the right thing to do. Here at ezCater, food is at the heart of our business. Our success depends on making sure businesspeople easily feed their meetings and events. At the same time, we know that, too often, people right outside the buildings where we or our clients enjoy a meal at work are left hungry. In fact, nearly one in six kids across the United States is at risk of going hungry every day.
To make a difference in the fight against childhood hunger, we are thrilled to announce a new partnership with JLL. Our new initiative, CaterCares, will donate funds from corporate catering orders to local food banks throughout the country. We’re proud to kick off in Boston this holiday season, with donations going to the Greater Boston Food Bank.
CaterCares combines the power of JLL, which manages 167 million square feet of U.S. office space, with the reach of ezCater’s online ordering platform, which connects businesspeople nationwide with more than 45,000 restaurants and caterers. Offered exclusively to tenants in JLL-managed properties, the formula is simple: tenants order meals for their offices or events through CaterCares, and in return they help to provide meals for children in need in their communities. The beautiful thing about CaterCares is that businesspeople make a difference by simply continuing to do something they already do: order food for their business.
We’re proud to collaborate with JLL on CaterCares. Together, we will have a significant impact on hunger. We can’t wait to see the program feed many, many hungry bellies.
