BOYNTON BEACH, Fla., Nov. 11, 2015 /PRNewswire/ -- Source1 Purchasing is a leading national purchasing services organization for the lodging, leisure, restaurant and gaming industries. Helping companies procure food and other goods and services is what they do -- and they do it well. So well, in fact, that GrowFL recently named them among the top 50 Florida Companies to Watch. So, when it came time to address the issue of hunger in their own community, Source1 team members from their corporate headquarters in Boynton Beach stepped up. Literally.
Recently, Source1 Purchasing helped sponsor Feeding South Florida's "Outrun Hunger Palm Beach County 5k" as part of their support of Feeding America, a nationwide network of 200 food banks that leads the fight against hunger in the United States. In addition to financial support, a dozen local Source1 employees also participated in the event, including CEO and President, Scott Hoffmire, who said he was proud of his group's effort.
"Getting involved to partner with like-minded groups makes perfect sense to us -- as a corporation but also as human beings," said Hoffmire. "If we can help fight hunger here at home through our support of Feeding South Florida, then really everyone wins."
Feeding South Florida distributes nearly 40 million pounds of food annually to local individuals in need of food assistance, including nearly 300,000 children and 150,000 older adults, making it the largest and most efficient food bank serving South Florida.
