Oneida Ltd., a division of EveryWare Global Inc. and world leader in the tabletop industry, will present the Food Bank of Central New York with a check in the amount of $1,500 on Tuesday, January 14, 2014 at 11:30am.  Representatives from EveryWare Global Inc. and the Food Bank will be on hand at the check presentation at the Oneida Company Store, 606 Sherrill Road, in Sherrill.  The funds are part of EveryWare’s commitment to Central New York.

Hunger is a growing epidemic in our nation.  More than 49 million Americans are food insecure.  This means that more than 33 million adults and almost 16 million children do not know where or when they will have their next meal.  Oneida’s donation will help support innovative initiatives around nutrition education and advocacy to providing nutritious food throughout the emergency food network.

“We are proud to help support the critical assistance that the Food Bank of Central New York offers to so many families in the Upstate New York area,” commented Amy Gebhardt, EveryWare’s Director Social Media.  “Food Bank of Central New York is a critical component to hungry individuals and families in central and northern New York.”

“With the support from Oneida Ltd.,  we are able to provide approximately 3450 additional meals to the emergency food network,” stated Kathleen Stress, executive director of the Food Bank. “The partnership with Oneida Ltd. is a valued relationship and we truly appreciate their support in helping to reduce food insecurity for our neighbors in need.”
