Classy Art partners with Million Meal Movement to help children with food insecurities

[ad_1]

At the most recent Fall High Point Furniture Market, the creative team at Classy Art created a display to visually represent how many meals they donated by putting 46,000 fortune cookies in their window display.

HOUSTON- Wholesale wall art and décor supplier Classy Art, LLC announced in April of this year that in the first quarter, it fed nearly 17,000 children with food insecurities and that number has now grown to over 46,000 at the close of the third quarter.

In February, Classy Art announced a partnership with the Indianapolis-based Million Meal Movement in an effort to provide nutritious meal packages to food pantries. Classy Art committed to providing one meal to a hungry American child for every single unit of art sold retroactively beginning January 1st.

At the most recent Fall High Point Furniture Market, the creative team at Classy Art created a display to visually represent how many meals they had donated by putting 46,000 fortune cookies in their window display.

“We’re just having fun and trying to make an impact,” said Gabriel Cohen, CEO and president of Classy Art. “I learned a while back that a business has a responsibility to do more than create jobs and profits. One of my favorite quotes is from Henry Ford, and he said, ‘A company that makes nothing but money is a poor business.’ That quote has stuck with me for over a decade, and my only regret is that we didn’t think of this partnership sooner. We are thrilled to be partnered with such a fantastic organization like Million Meal Movement.”

“Classy Art has been an invaluable partner as we continue to fight childhood hunger,” said Shane Scarlett of Million Meal Movement. “Thanks to their generous support, over 46,000 meals will be provided to kids who need them most. Not only has Classy Art helped feed kids, but they’re also supporting a program that empowers kids to give back. Funding from sales of Classy Art products allowed over 250 youth volunteers to package meals – an experience they’ll remember forever. We couldn’t have this kind of impact on kids – both those that are hungry and those that hunger to give back – without this gift from Classy Art.”
