Stoughton Steel knows that hunger hurts. That's why we've chosen to become an involved sponsor of the Greater Boston Food Bank's (GBFB's) mission to end hunger in eastern Massachusetts. "We are excited by our new partnership with Stoughton Steel," said Carrie Clark, Manager of Corporate Relations at the Greater Boston Food Bank. "Everyone has a role in ending hunger in our community, and Stoughton Steel is playing their's by donating a portion of proceeds from the Baking Steel to GBFB, and helping teach children in our community how to make healthy food choices." With every sale of the Baking Steel, we will donate a portion of the profit to the GBFB to help with its hunger relief efforts. Not only can you enjoy the Baking Steel with your own family, but you can also be proud knowing that your purchase in turns helps another family by providing meals that may not otherwise be available. Every little bit counts, so we feel it is important to give back what we can - no one should have to go hungry!
Coming off our recently successful Kickstarter campaign, we will be able to donate funds that will be applied towards more than 4,000 meals. We were extremely happy with our success on Kickstarter, one because it proved the validity of our product but most importantly, it allowed us to start our relationship with the Greater Boston Food Bank with a sizable donation which will be used to help many families in need. That is something we at Stoughton Steel, are most proud of.
Through this donation, we hope to make an impact on the GBFB's Kids Cafe Program, a program that feeds close to 1,500 children per day, five days a week. Kids Cafe not only feeds children, but also teaches them about food, eating healthy and how to make better food choices for living healthier lives. The Baking Steel is a product that we can bring to Kids Cafe sites for a learning module on healthy pizza-making. We can use this as a tool to help kids to get the nutrients they need in a manner most will enjoy.
