Torrance, CA (November 30, 2011) – A team from Phenomenex, a global leader in the research and manufacture of separation science consumables, volunteered at the Los Angeles Regional Food Bank, helping prepare meals for delivery in time for Thanksgiving.
More than forty Phenomenex employees spent their work day sorting and salvaging donated food items. As a longtime supporter of the LA Food Bank, Phenomenex holds an annual food drive to benefit the Food Bank and organizes several volunteer days throughout the year to provide thousands of hours of hands-on assistance.
“Volunteering at the Food Bank is always a great experience,” said David Townsend, national sales manager for Phenomenex. “I’m proud to work a company that regularly spends money, time and resources to help the less fortunate. This is especially appreciated around Thanksgiving, where we can make such a big difference for those who would otherwise go without during the holidays.”
The Los Angeles Regional Food Bank provides food for nearly 900 member agency sites including abused and abandoned children homes, battered women shelters, senior centers, local food pantries, soup kitchens, AIDS hospices and more. In 2010, volunteers, financial supporters, product donors and agency network made it possible to distribute 62 million pounds of food for the hungry in Los Angeles County.
