Feeding America’s mission is to feed the hungry through a nationwide network of more than 200 food banks serving all 50 states, the District of Columbia and Puerto Rico. Through food pantries, soup kitchens and other agencies, Feeding America helps secure and distribute more than 3 billion pounds of food and grocery products annually with a highly mobile staff. In fact, approximately one third of Feeding America’s national office staff are on the go, working with food banks, agencies and advocates on the road to raise awareness of the issue of hunger in the United States.
And with all those devices and all that mobility, mobile Internet costs were adding up.
Feeding America Senior Vice President Kevin Lutz looked at the organization’s mobile Internet bills and realized he could save 75% by working with Mobile Citizen, a low-cost mobile Internet provider for nonprofits.
“Our research shows that for every dollar raised, we can provide eight meals to the people we serve. That also means for every dollar saved by reducing our mobile Internet costs, that’s money that can go to help feed someone in need in our community – and that is our ultimate goal.”
— Kevin Lutz, Senior Vice President, Feeding America
