GOFoods Foundation launch at GBK’s Academy Award fundraising event results in the donation of 20,000 meals to a range of celebrity causes like the Los Angeles Regional Food Bank, the Sugar Ray Leonard Foundation, the HollyRod Foundation, and introduces fundraising opportunities to feed and prosper American families.
(PRWEB) March 12, 2012
The GOFoods Foundation, whose mission is to partner with charitable organizations and individuals to feed and prosper American families, announced today that beginning with the donation of 20,000 GOFoods Global meals shared with Hollywood celebrities and their causes — ranging from the Los Angeles Regional Food Bank, the Sugar Ray Leonard Foundation, and the HollyRod Foundation — their recent launch has sparked national fund raising opportunities to feed and prosper American families.
During their national launch at an Academy Award fundraising event, the GOFoods Foundation shared its mission with Sugar Ray Leonard, who is not only known for his professional boxing success, but also charitable work for Children’s Miracle Network Hospitals, The HollyRod Foundation, the Dream Foundation, and the Sugar Ray Leonard Foundation.
“I really appreciate what you all are doing with your mission,” said Sugar Ray Leonard, who was introduced to the GOFoods Foundation at the Oscar event.
GoFoods President Brad Stewart says that with 14 million American children going to bed hungry and 50 million people on food stamps, the GOFoods Foundation has pledged to become part of the solution.
“Serving, saving, and sharing food is what we teach American families to do for themselves and for their causes,” said Brad Stewart. “Whether you have a family to feed or a great cause to champion, you can help people eat and raise funds with our healthy, nutritious GOFoods Global food reserve meals.”
The GOFoods Grab-and-Go Gourmet 72 Hour survival backpack introduced to Hollywood stars and their causes contains meals and beverages that just by adding water make wonderful and healthy family meals now or whenever needed for up to 25 years. Celebrities and families like GOFoods meals because they are easy-to-prepare and nutritious. Favorites include Creamy Tuscan Pasta with Sun-Dried Tomatoes, Au Gratin Potatoes, Southwestern Tortilla Soup, and Chicken Cheddar Rice, along with on-the-go beverages Kona Joe Coffee and Green Tea Extract and GOFoods’ direct to-the-mouth sustainable energy product.
“I had no idea nutritional products could have a 25-year shelf life without preservatives. This is wonderful!” said Marcia Gay Harden, movie actress and cast member of the Desperate Housewives TV series, who met GOFoods President Brad Stewart, at an Academy Awards fundraising event.
The GOFoods Foundation invites celebrities and individuals alike to join this worthy effort to save American families and their causes, one meal at a time, with the GOFoods Global go-anywhere, do-anything nutritious meals.
“For every 10 packages of food purchased, GOFoods Global will donate 1 package to the GOFoods Foundation to help get nutritious, healthy, and affordable food into the hands of those who are at risk for hunger,” said Brad Stewart, GOFoods President.
While GOFoods Global meals are going directly to food banks across the country through the GOFoods Foundation, opportunities to raise funds for families and their causes are simultaneously available with GOFoods Global, please visit http://www.gofoodsglobal.com for more details.
