Hunger is an issue that impacts every community in our country. To help fight hunger, Wow Wow Classic Waffles, a brand of individually packaged waffles baked with a unique dough-based recipe created by Marson Foods, has partnered with Feeding America ® to donate individually packaged Wow Wow Classic Waffles to Feeding America food banks around the country, equaling 10 million meals* over the next three years, going directly to children and families who are experiencing food insecurity.
For Hunger Action Month ® this September, Wow Wow Classic Waffles and their committed team of sponsored partners, including Stewart-Haas Racing, which races the #41 Ford Mustang driven by NASCAR Cup Series driver Cole Custer, and the Troy Lee Designs/Red Bull/GasGas Motocross Racing Team will join the Feeding America nationwide network of food banks to inspire people to take action and raise awareness of people facing the impossible choice of hunger. Food banks around the country are working to make a real and lasting impact on food insecurity in their communities, and they are asking for the public’s support.
“Over the past year in 2021 we have made a deep and lasting commitment to the fight to end hunger with Feeding America,” said Dave Marson, Founder, Marson Foods. “We are so proud of the work Wow Wow Classic Waffles and our sponsored partners have done to date, and we look forward to creating
lasting change through not only our monetary commitment, but also our volunteer time on the ground in the coming months and years. The work Feeding America does to help families and children across the country has never been more important.”
During the month of September, people across the country can get involved in the movement by learning, committing, and speaking up about ways to ending hunger.
“For millions of people in America, a daily meal isn’t a choice between different dishes. It's a choice between food and other crucial needs—like medicine, electricity, or childcare. No one should be forced to make a choice to go hungry,” said Casey Marsh, Chief Development Officer at Feeding America. “We are tremendously grateful to Wow Wow Classic Waffles and Marson Foods for their commitment to choosing to help end hunger during Hunger Action Month and beyond. Their support will help to bring attention to this very important issue and help to provide more meals to our neighbors in need.”
September marks the 14th year Feeding America, the nation’s largest domestic hunger-relief organization with a nationwide network of 200 food banks and 60,000 partner food pantries and meal programs, has organized the annual call to action. This year’s campaign presents the impossible choices that millions of Americans must make between food and other basic needs.
