YourFMO Helps Provide 3 Million Meals to Feeding America in 2023

–News Direct–

YourFMO, a national, non-governmental, independent marketing organization providing agents with valuable resources to help clients decide on Medicare options, announced that it has donated a milestone 3 million meals to Feeding America in 2023.

YourFMO first partnered with Feeding America in 2019 with a shared goal: to help people get the food and resources they need to thrive. In service of this partnership, YourFMO donates the equivalent of 10 meals for every effective insurance enrollment that agents submit through the YourFMO Enrollment Center.

Since the inception of this program in 2019, agent submissions via the YourFMO Enrollment Center, an essential agent resource, have grown significantly, resulting in an overall donation of the equivalent of 7.5 million meals to the Feeding America network of food banks, food pantries, and local meal programs.

In 2023, YourFMO set an aggressive goal to donate the equivalent of 1 million meals. We were thrilled to have reached 2 million meals this year, but to see us now passing the 3 million meal mark, we could not be more pleased said Matthew Graham, senior vice president and YourFMO program leader. Were exceptionally grateful for the independent agents who use our enrollment center. Their support is the reason we reached this milestone in the battle against hunger.

Through its Feeding America partnership, the YourFMO team has gained new insights into the challenges faced by Americans experiencing food insecurity. Graham said the 2020 coronavirus pandemic and resulting economic downturn brought into clearer focus the important services Feeding America provides, especially within the senior population.

According to Feeding America, 1 in 14 seniors, age 60 and older, was food insecure in 2021 and 7.1% of the senior population was food insecure. Every state is home to seniors and older adults who experience food insecurity.

YourFMOs support of Feeding America has been outstanding, said Lauren Biedron, senior vice president, Corporate Partnerships, Feeding America. Through their generosity, they have helped to provide 7.5 million meals since 2019 to our neighbors facing hunger in the U.S. We are appreciative of YourFMO and thank them for their support."

YourFMOs support for Feeding America has inspired other efforts, including those with one of its closest partners. The YourFMO team is relatively small, but they have motivated others across AmeriLife, said Scotty Elliott, Chief Distribution Officer of Health for AmeriLife. Weve used YourFMOs blueprint to organize other highly successful events with Feeding America throughout our company, and its uplifting to know that the food donations from our partners and employees have also helped so many in our community and across our nation.

YourFMOs commitment to Feeding America will continue into the new year. Were so very grateful for the support from our independent agents and AmeriLife, added Graham. If we keep up this pace, YourFMO is certain to exceed an overall donation of 10 million meals in 2024.
