Reminder: Please donate to YNHHS’ second virtual food drive

Food insecurity has always been a problem for people in our communities, but the economic impact of the COVID-19 pandemic has meant that even more people can’t afford enough food to feed themselves and their families. 

In response, YNHHS is currently holding its second online food drive, at https://www.ynhhs.org/givehealthy, until Jan. 15, 2022. Employees and medical staff are invited to donate food to hunger-relief organizations in the communities where they live and/or work. 

Last year’s first GiveHealthy drive collected over 22,500 pounds of food for local hunger-relief organizations. The drive again will be conducted through #GiveHealthy, an organization that provides an online platform for hunger-relief organizations to set up “registries” listing items they need. YNHHS employees, departments and medical staff members can support one or more hunger-relief organizations in communities YNHHS serves. 

Visit the GIveHealthy campaign and choose the items you wish to purchase for a particular organization. Because the food will ship from suppliers directly to hunger-relief organizations, you will be able to purchase healthy food items, including fresh produce. 

YNHHS’ drive was developed and organized through a system-wide collaboration among Community Health Improvement, Community and Government Relations, Diversity, Equity and Inclusion, Human Resources, Marketing and Communications, NEMG and Food and Nutrition. 

For more information, visit YNHHS’ GiveHealthy site, or contact Augusta Mueller, [email protected] or 203-688-3862.
