Madison, WI – Every year after IDDBA’s tradeshow, exhibiting companies are encouraged to reduce wasted food by donating their products to help those in need. As IDDBA 18 was hosted in New Orleans, LA, the association collaborated with the city’s Second Harvest Food Bank to give back to the community.
Hundreds of exhibiting companies at the tradeshow generously provided donations, contributing to an amazing amount of 154,455 pounds of food, or 128,712 meals. The food bank distributes these donations to more than 240 organizations from the Mississippi border to the Texas state line, feeding the hungry.
IDDBA is proud to have partnered with Second Harvest Food Bank in giving back to the community, and thanks all the volunteers and exhibitors that made this donation possible.
