Stopping Hunger and Giving Back to the Community

Team building events are about more than just running around on the beach or in a field, playing games and laughing as people fall over each other. This company chose to have their team bond over something different, more meaningful: helping those in need. In Orlando, Tampa Bay, Phoenix and Chicago, over 250 employees went to work making meals for people in need.

Over 100,000 meals were made in a single day, and this company made 1 MILLION…

An Interview with Warren Press of Feet First
