Source1 Purchasing, a specialty vendor for the hospitality, culinary and gaming industries, recently won recognition for its exemplary service in fighting hunger when it was named one of 50 top Florida Companies to Watch by Orlando-based GrowFL.
Based in Boynton Beach, Florida, Source1 both sponsored and participated in Feeding South Florida's "Outrun Hunger Palm Beach County 5k" to benefit Feeding America, a nationwide network of 200 food banks. One dozen team members literally went the extra mile to fight hunger — including CEO and President Scott Hoffmire, who expressed pride in his group's effort.
"Getting involved to partner with like-minded groups makes perfect sense to us — as a corporation but also as human beings," Hoffmire said. "If we can help fight hunger here at home through our support of Feeding South Florida, then really everyone wins."
Feeding South Florida, South Florida’s largest food bank, distributes close to 40 million pounds of food each year to residents requiring assistance, including nearly 300,000 children and 150,000 seniors.
