Pacific Life Foundation’s $2 Million Commitment to Combat Food Insecurity Will Collectively Help Millions of Food Insecure People Over the Next Five Years
The Pacific Life Foundation was proud to announce in December 2021 a $2 million commitment over five years to improve food security, both nationally and in the communities where Pacific Life employees live and work, including Orange County, CA; Omaha, NE; and Lynchburg, VA. The Pacific Life Foundation believes that food security is critical to the stability of our communities and the health, well-being, and economic empowerment of its individuals. That is why, in the last two decades, the Foundation has invested more than $2.3 million in supporting food pantries, food banks, and hunger-related programs serving those most underrepresented in our communities. By strengthening partnerships and increasing investments in food banks, some of which have been grantees for more than 30 years, the Foundation will have a deeper, more meaningful impact on combating hunger.
“The pandemic has greatly impacted our communities across the nation. We know individuals and families are struggling to ensure that they have enough food on their tables and food costs are continuing to rise,” said Tennyson Oyler, President of the Pacific Life Foundation. “Through this pledge, we are committing to making a long-term investment in community partners who have the infrastructure, service programs, and successful track record to make a material impact on these families most in need.”
