Join Hickory Farms and No Kid Hungry on Giving Tuesday

Hickory Farms invites all of our customers to join us in the fight against childhood hunger. We’ve designated Dec. 2 as “Giving Day,” and we encourage everyone to mark their calendars and make a donation of $1, $3, $5, or $10 to Share Our Strength’s No Kid Hungry® campaign, which works to help end childhood hunger in the U.S.

It’s hard to believe that more than 16 million children in the U.S. go to bed hungry, but poverty and lack of resources are making this situation a reality for many families. Part of the problem stems from a lack of awareness about the issue. To combat this, Hickory Farms will be hosting a Twitter discussion on Dec. 1st to help raise awareness at home.

Past efforts by Hickory Farms to raise funds include Taste of the Nation Toledo, among many others. For the past six years, we’ve been active partners with No Kid Hungry, working to make a difference in the lives of hungry families. Together with our customers, Hickory Farms’ partnership with the campaign has raised over $3.3 million dollars. These donations have gone a long way towards funding worthwhile community programs that provide emergency food aid, summer meal programs, education about nutrition and other long-term solutions for families in crisis. If you would like to learn more about how you can help out, visit No Kid Hungry’s website.

As you prepare to share the holidays with beloved family members and friends, it’s important to reach out to those less fortunate in our community. Giving locally can help combat hunger and poverty right in your own hometown. Remember that each of us can make a positive contribution to childhood hunger by donating to a worthy cause this holiday season.

Time and Place

The holidays are a busy time for most people. Therefore, you’ll want to make sure that both the time and place work for everybody. You should pick a location that’s festive and centrally located for employees. If you decide to host an office party, make sure to go the extra mile with your decor to give the event a boost of festivity.

Next, select a time that won’t overlap with family activities. Try scheduling the party a day or two before Thanksgiving or, if you want to have the party on Thanksgiving, select a time that doesn’t conflict with dinner.

Theme

When choosing the party’s decor, try sticking to a theme. A fall harvest is a simple idea with tons of possibilities. Try decorating with fall squashes, carved pumpkins and a bouquet of leafy greens. An apple theme can also give you great ideas for fun decorations, delicious food and beverage pairings.

Activities

Plan a few activities to ensure that everyone will have a good time. You can compile a list of fun games to play during the event, as well as a playlist for background music. Additionally, you can plan charitable activities, such as a canned food drive, to help spread holiday cheer to others in need.

Food

Food is one of the core components of every great party. Because your employees will be eating heavy meals at upcoming holiday celebrations, it’s a good idea to stick to snacks and hors d’oeuvres. Set out our Home for the Holidays gift box to lay out an assortment of cheeses, sausages and crackers, or the Hickory Holiday Celebration Gift Basket featuring a variety of sausages, mixed nuts, fruits, cheeses and wines.

By choosing a great venue, planning some activities and taking advantage of our Hickory Farms’ corporate gift baskets, you can throw a great Thanksgiving party that the whole office will love.
