Coldwell Banker Residential Brokerage, Mid-Atlantic recently partnered with the United Way of Central Maryland and Molly Shattuck, founder and CEO of Molly Shattuck Vibrant Living, for its second annual Families Living United Healthy Food Week. The weeklong campaign took place in the beginning of May and resulted in over 70,400 pounds of collected healthy food.
“I am thrilled with the results of this year’s Healthy Food Week, which was more than double from last year,” said Dean Cottrill, president, Mid-Atlantic, Coldwell Banker Residential Brokerage. “Coldwell Banker believes very strongly in giving back to the community and I hope that through our involvement and support, we have helped give families the resources they need to maintain a healthy diet.”
Families Living United Healthy Food Week benefits United Way’s Access to Healthy Food Initiative, which aims to expand access to nutritious foods for low-income individuals and communities who lack the resources necessary to consume a healthy and consistent diet. Key to UWCM’s Initiative is its focus on nutritious food. Food insecurity is correlated with an increased susceptibility to illness and negative health outcomes like diabetes, heart disease and childhood obesity. It is also shown to slow cognitive development among children – affecting their ability to succeed in school and beyond.
“Healthy and nutritious meals play a huge role in the lives of both children and adults,”said Shattuck. “We are happy to lend a helping hand in bringing healthy foods to the tables of individuals and families who are less fortunate.”
