Operation Feed The Hungry
Buckeye Community Health Plan stays busy throughout the holiday season by giving back to their communities. For four years, Buckeye has worked together with 69 agencies to provide turkeys and hams to families who are less fortunate, coordinated as “Operation Feed the Hungry.” Last year, they provided 55,410 pounds of turkeys and hams to feed over 5,500 holiday meals to families.
Many of the families who received food were in single-parent homes, and many were headed by moms or grandmothers. Buckeye says that spreading joy during the holiday season keeps them connected with their communities and understands the needs these families have throughout the entire year.
