​This month, the Crawford Merz team collected food donations at our office to support IREM’s food drive for Every Meal. With more than 300,000 children in Minnesota living with food insecurity, we are grateful IREM gave us the opportunity to help Every Meal with their mission to fight hunger. Specifically, Every Meal focuses on filling the gaps in food access that children face during weekends, summers, and extended breaks when children don’t have access to the free and reduced meal programs at school. In addition to hosting a food drive at our office, we also had a couple of people from our team volunteer to collect the donations at one of IREM’s drop off sites for the food drive. It was uplifting to see the generosity of others in our industry and their commitment to giving back to our community!
