Lessing’s Hospitality Group, one of the region’s most innovative industry leaders, announces the results of the monthly long “Do Good” campaign in April in honor of Earth Day. The sixth-generation, family-owned company comprised of over 120 locations throughout the Northeast and Florida honored their commitment to giving back to the local community with a partnership with Island Harvest Food Bank (www.islandharvest.org), the largest hunger relief organization on Long Island. The campaign kicked off with the Plant-A-Garden event on April 9th at Island Harvest Food Bank’s 1.8-acre “Giving Garden” in Brentwood where the Lessing’s team spent the day in the fields planting seeds for this year’s crop which will provide healthy, fresh produce to help support Long Islanders in need. April 9th also marked the launch of the social media campaign encouraging donations to Island Harvest Food Bank. The campaign culminated on Earth Day, April 22nd, when Lessing’s Hospitality Group matched donations made on Earth Day to Island Harvest Food Bank. As a result, on Earth Day Lessing’s donated 5,000 meals for the 300,000 Long Islanders struggling with hunger and food insecurity.
“We were thrilled to have our team come together and participate in providing food for Long Islanders in need. Lessing’s is committed to supporting Island Harvest and all of the amazing work they do to bring food to our neighbors struggling with hunger and food insecurity. We hope that the 5,000 meals we were able to donate as a result of our Earth Day campaign will bring comfort to families across Long Island,” concludes Jennifer Cantin, Director of Marketing & Development, Lessing’s Hospitality Group.
