ClarkLindsey residents donate time, funds and food to people in need | Health-care

URBANA — ClarkLindsey is reducing food waste and helping fight food insecurity all at once with a simple plan: donating extra food made at meal times to the Daily Bread Soup Kitchen.

In just one week, the kitchens were able to freeze and donate over 100 pounds of prepared food, according to ClarkLindsey resident and Food Security Work Group coordinator Chris Todd.

The FSWG has donated funds and volunteer hours to Daily Bread before, “but now we’re able to also get them some really yummy food, because it’s all the food we eat, and I can tell you, it’s really good,” Todd said .

The leftover donation program was set up with the help of ClarkLindsey chief operating officer Kenneth Ivory and the Food Recovery Network, but it’s just the latest effort to fight food insecurity since the FSWG was formed in late 2022.

Many residents in the assisted living facility have an interest in helping provide food to people in the community who need it, so it wasn’t hard to pull a group together to seek out volunteer opportunities and partnerships with charities around the area.

“We’re thought of as a pretty wealthy community,” said ClarkLindsey resident and FSWG
