BLOOMFIELD, Conn.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Global health service company Cigna (NYSE: CI) received a Hunger Hero Award from Feeding Children Everywhere (FCE) for the Cigna Fights Hunger campaign to provide meals to those in need – Cigna's largest employee volunteer initiative. Since 2013, Cigna has provided FCE with 2.6 million meals packed by 15,000 Cigna employees.
“For the past five years, Cigna has partnered with FCE in its hunger projects, which are hands-on, high-impact, high-energy events where Cigna employee volunteers pack meals. FCE brings the food, the assembly lines and music while Cigna volunteers pour their hearts into meal-packing to help feed hungry children worldwide,” said Mary Engvall, director, civic affairs and corporate responsibility at Cigna.
The Hunger Hero Awards started as a way to honor those making a difference and to bring awareness to the issue of global hunger. “Together, FCE and Cigna are working towards breaking the cycle of hunger and hopelessness for millions of people around the world,” said Dave Green, CEO of Feeding Children Everywhere.
