Ironform Helps Fight Hunger in Local Communities

Many people believe that the problems associated with hunger are confined to small pockets of society, certain areas of the country or certain neighborhoods, but the reality is much different.

Right now, millions of Americans are struggling with hunger. These are often hard-working adults, children, and seniors who simply cannot make ends meet and are forced to go without food for several meals or even days. In the United States, more than one out of eight Americans live in a household with food insecurities, which means they do not always know where they will find their next meal.

Ironform is helping fight hunger by donating a percentage of its annual profits to fight hunger in our local communities. Each Ironform location has partnered with a local food bank serving its community to make good on our commitment to give back.

Ironform is doubling down for 2018 by creating a matching employee contribution program for the Food Banks as well as providing new reading materials for our “little free library” project as each food bank facility.
