RiversideKnowing that kids can’t have summer fun on an empty stomach, Caliber Collision is launching its 4th annual Rhythm Restoration Food Drive from June 8th through June 26th to benefit the Second Harvest Food Bank of Riverside & San Bernardino.

Caliber Collision has set up food collection bins at each of its 17 centers in the Inland Empire and urges customers and the public to drop off food items or cash donations at local centers.

The local Caliber locations are part of a company-wide national food drive that last year provided more than one million meals for children in need of food.  The annual food drive is a grassroots, volunteer effort by Caliber teammates who have challenged each other to break 2014’s record and have set a nationwide goal of 2 million meals this year for at-risk children and families.

According to a recent report by Feeding America, despite the economic recovery, 1 in 5 children in the U.S. continue to struggle with hunger.  Chronic illness is reported to be higher among children living in food-insecure households and the lack of adequate nutrition can literally change the structure of a child’s brain and affect learning.

“For too many children, no school means no lunch,” said Steve Grimshaw, Caliber Collision’s Chief Executive Officer.  “Local food banks need extra help during the summer to ensure that those in need don’t go hungry. We are committed to doubling our efforts this year to restore the rhythm of regular meals to children in each of the communities that Caliber serves.”

In addition to the food items, Caliber Collision has also committed to a corporate matching contribution for local food banks based on the amount collected by Caliber teammates locally.

Non-perishable food items or cash donations can be dropped off at any of the Caliber Collision locations listed below. The food bank cannot accept glass or open containers, perishable or homemade items.
