Food Lifeline is honored to celebrate our partners at Milliman as our Corporate Donor of the Month for January 2021!
Milliman works with their clients to improve healthcare systems, manage emerging risks, and advance financial security. In 2019, they amplified their commitment to social responsibility by signing on to the United Nations Global Compact and committing to the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals (UNSDGs) that aim to end poverty, protect the planet, and ensure prosperity for all. These antipoverty goals are a natural extension of Milliman’s mission to protect the health and financial well-being of people everywhere.
As Food Lifeline continues to learn more about racial inequity, specifically about how it reinforces the conditions of poverty in our country, we are excited to partner with a company like Milliman who is similarly interested in working to build equitable and prosperous systems for all.
Milliman employees have decided to “take a day on, rather than a day off” by volunteering at Food Lifeline’s Hunger Solution Center on MLK Day. Milliman volunteers have inspected and sorted tens of thousands of meals worth of nutritious food on this annual day of service. Their support helps make sure that Food Lifeline can continue to act on our mission to end hunger.
Milliman also generously funded the creation of our new volunteer appreciation space in the Hunger Solution Center. This space will be used to make important announcements, highlight upcoming events, and celebrate the Food Lifeline volunteers and donors who make our work possible. Furthermore, this space will help Food Lifeline sustain and increase our core volunteers. Without our incredible volunteers, Food Lifeline would not be able to inspect and deliver the millions of meals that we distribute each year to individuals experiencing food insecurity.
“Milliman has chosen to support Food Lifeline because of their commitment to addressing the issue of hunger with such a large and scalable impact to our area. Limited access to food is a fundamental obstacle for so many people to live better lives, learn and work as effective members of the community and this is something we feel compelled to help with.”
– Leigh Dunlap, Coordinator of Milliman’s volunteer efforts for Food Lifeline
On behalf of our Board, staff, and most importantly the people we serve, we want to extend our deep gratitude and thanks to Milliman for sharing our commitment to a world where everyone is safe, healthy, and cared for.
