On Tuesday, the Staff Management | SMX local Indiana team participated in the 12th annual Million Meal Marathon at Gainbridge Fieldhouse. This one-day event gathered thousands of volunteers to pack meals for Indiana food banks. The goal of the marathon was to pack 1 million meals.
According to organizers, those meals included macaroni and cheese dinners and rice casseroles. The meals can be prepared by just adding boiling water and can feed up to four people.
“We had a fun time at this event, it was a great team building activity while providing an opportunity to give back to the Indiana community”, said Raenetta Johnson, Recruitment Operations Manager for Staff Management | SMX. “We understand many Indiana families don’t know where their next meal is coming from, so being able to help alleviate that and partake in this event is a good feeling.”
Staff Management | SMX came on as a contributing sponsor for the Million Meal Movement, providing financial support and team members to pack meals during the day. A fun-filled activity while giving back to the community resulted in a successful event. The team is already looking forward to next year’s packing event.
