Lincoln Financial Donates $1 Million to Food Providers
Nebraska Ag Connection - 03/23/2020

The demands on food banks, community pantries and soup kitchens are swiftly rising, and the universal priority of these nonprofits is the most basic human need of all -- access to food. Lincoln Financial Group announced that the Lincoln Financial Foundation, Radnor, Pa., has rapidly responded to the immediate needs of food providers in its local communities to help address the rising demand for their services as a result of the COVID-19 pandemic.

"We want to ensure that short-term crises don't derail the long-term goal of a secure future for some of the most vulnerable in our communities," said Lisa M. Buckingham, executive vice president and chief people, place and brand officer for Lincoln Financial Group. "We deeply appreciate what our partner organizations do for our communities each and every day, and we're committed to stand beside them in these uncertain times."

Lincoln Financial Foundation will increase funding by 25% for a total of $1 million to nearly 30 organizations across eleven cities where Lincoln has a significant presence, including Philadelphia, Pa., Ft. Wayne, Ind., Greensboro, N.C., and Omaha, Neb. The organizations distribute food supply to community pantries, soup kitchens and shelters, help dispense school lunches to students out-of-school and provide meals to seniors and other vulnerable community members.
