The Body Shop Helps Fight Hunger in New York City

March 14, 2019 | 1:01 pm | Written by

The Body Shop held a Thanksgiving Food Drive at their corporate office in New York from November 12-19 of last year. Employees were encouraged to donate non-perishable, Thanksgiving-themed items, such as stuffing, instant potatoes, canned vegetables, cranberry sauce, and pie filling, to help provide holiday meals for their neighbors in need.

A grand total of 90 lbs. of food was collected, which is the equivalent of 75 meals! Our friends from Moishe’s Moving Systems volunteered to pick up and delivere the donations to the New York City Rescue Mission.

The Body Shop is adamant about making a difference in the world. In addition to fight hunger, they are also heavily involved in campaigns related to banning animal testing, re-wilding the world, and reducing their environmental footprint.

More than 1.2 million people, including 1 in 6 children, in New York City face hunger every day.  We are so grateful to have The Body Shop and Moishe’s Moving Systems as allies in our fight against hunger and food waste!
