“Giving back to the communities we serve is core to our social mission,” says Kevin Lorenc, director of corporate communications for MathWorks, sponsor of our $1 million match campaign Growing Healthy Futures. MathWorks is the leading developer of mathematical computing software for engineers and scientists.
“When the pandemic hit, we started looking for a meaningful way to make a difference,” Kevin says. “That’s when we started discussions with The Greater Boston Food Bank. In 2021, GBFB launched the Growing Healthy Futures Campaign, and that was the perfect fit for us. Last summer, our $1 million matching gift resulted in an additional $1.8 million in donations, helping to provide more than 5.6 million meals.”
“When the pandemic hit, we started looking for a meaningful way to make a difference.”
Funds from the campaign were used to distribute healthy meals to students and families facing hunger so they can continue to grow, learn and thrive.
“This summer, we see how inflation and supply chain issues continue to impact food insecurity in the Boston area,” Kevin adds. “Based on that, MathWorks is really happy to continue our corporate sponsorship with another $1 million matching gift to Growing Healthy Futures.”
