Fiat Chrysler Automobiles is partnering with No Kid Hungry to support schools, food banks and community groups across the country to serve 640,000 meals during the crisis created by the pandemic.
In response to the coronavirus crisis, FCA announced a commitment to provide more than 1 million meals to ensure children who depend on school meals continue to have access to nutritious food and this new partnership is a step toward hitting that benchmark.
“There has never been a more important moment to help children and their families,” said Mark Stewart, chief operating officer of FCA — North America. “FCA and the Chrysler brand are pleased to support No Kid Hungry in its mission to end childhood hunger.”
FCA is moving closer to achieving this goal by partnering with No Kid Hungry to support its grantees ‒ the aforementioned schools, food banks and community groups ‒ that are still serving meals during school closures due to the pandemic. FCA’s corporate partnership is incremental to the expanded partnership with No Kid Hungry that the Chrysler brand announced in mid-March
FCA has partnered with more than 40 local nonprofits to feed school children in its plant communities in Illinois, Indiana, Michigan, Ohio, as well as Canada and Mexico
“We are incredibly grateful to FCA and to the Chrysler brand for stepping up even more so for America’s kids,” said Tom Nelson, president and CEO at Share Our Strength, the organization behind the No Kid Hungry campaign. “This incremental support will help us feed more vulnerable kids who are currently missing the school meals they rely on.”
Chrysler brand has worked with No Kid Hungry since 2018 toward the organization’s goal to end childhood hunger in America. In March, the Chrysler brand expanded that partnership. With the sale of every Chrysler Pacifica from March 18 through the end of June, Chrysler is making a contribution that will help No Kid Hungry provide meals to kids in need across the country.
“Chrysler first partnered with No Kid Hungry in 2018 to help in their goal of ending childhood hunger,” said Tim Kuniskis, Global head of Alfa Romeo and head of Passenger Cars – Dodge, SRT, Chrysler and Fiat, FCA – North America.
“As a brand that is focused on making life easier for families, we at Chrysler want to continue to help those in need and make it easier for families to help others. So with each Pacifica sold, we’ll help No Kid Hungry provide up to 500 meals to kids in need with the goal of providing up to 10 million meals.”
The company tied that effort into the announcement of its Pacifica Family Pricing plus zero-percent financing for 60 months is included on every 2020 model year Chrysler Pacifica from the Pacifica Touring to the Pacifica Hybrid Limited.
