Dining and Travel Rewards Brand Seeks to Generate 600,000 Meals* for Those in Need
Primecard has announced it will be actively supporting Feeding America in its efforts to help end hunger for American children, families, and adults. Primecard is one of the nation’s premiere discount and rewards providers serving both the restaurant and travel industry – with exclusive savings, members-only offers, and more. Through the new partnership, Primecard will be donating one meal* for every Primecard transaction at participating locations to Feeding America, a nationwide network of food banks. The goal for the initiative is to fund at least 600,000 meals.
“Food insecurity is often a silent struggle because people either fear judgment or do not know about resources they can turn to for support,” says Ric Roth, Founder, President, and CEO, Primecard. “The Feeding America network works diligently year-round to help people who face hunger and improve access to healthy meals. We are very proud to be able to lend our support to such a fine organization.”
More than 37 million Americans – or approximately 1 out of every 9 people – faces hunger. They may have to make tough choices to make ends meet, such as choosing between paying rent or buying groceries. They may skip meals for themselves in order to make sure children are fed. Or, they might forego healthy meals so they can afford medication.
“Hunger is an issue that impacts every single county in our country,” explains Briana Crane, Managing Director, Strategic Gifts at Feeding America. “We are happy to partner with Primecard to help our neighbors in need and we encourage everyone to join the fight to end hunger.”
To show their support, Primecard members need only use their Primecard when dining out, booking travel, or shopping with Primecard-affiliated merchants. A searchable listing by zip code of Primecard partners can be found on the company’s website at www.primecard.com.
“Our goal was to make donations to Feeding America as simple as possible for our members,” adds Roth. “All anyone has to do is just use their Primecard as normal and the donations will start building and building towards our 600,000 meal goal.”
* $1 helps to provide at least 10 meals secured by Feeding America on behalf of local member food banks.
