A Great Day of Service in Central Texas
On Thursday, November 29th, the entire Barcoding Texas office and members of our leadership team joined our partner, Front Gate Tickets, for their annual charity day. Along with members of the local Zebra Technologies office, we spent the day serving and packaging food at the Central Texas Food Bank in Austin.
Throughout the day of service, Barcoding, Inc. and our partners were honored to serve 13,303 meals to members of the Central Texas community. This was a rewarding experience for all who participated, and we are so thankful for the opportunity. We also enjoyed the chance to foster an even closer relationship with our partners, Front Gate Tickets and Zebra Technologies!
Central Texas is one of the fastest growing regions in the nation, but, as a result of that impressive growth, some of the community’s most vulnerable members can be overlooked. In fact, according to data provided from Feeding America Map the Meal Gap, the overall food insecurity rate (17.3 percent) and child food insecurity rate (24.4 percent) for Central Texas are above the US averages.
Since joining the Texas region in September, Barcoding, Inc. has been eager to give back to its new community. In the spirit of the holiday season, we wanted to help combat that food insecurity rate, and the Central Texas Food Bank was the perfect partner. We can’t thank them enough for welcoming us with open arms.
Check out some of the sights from our time giving back at the food bank below and we encourage you to discover causes close to your heart and take time to give back to your local community!
