In preparation to make one of the largest produce distribution of 2016, members of Three Square’s Giving Society filled 550 bags this past holiday season with mixed produce rescued from hospitality and grocery outlets. Following the packing event, a recognition dinner created by Three Square’s culinary team was held. The Giving Society is made up of individuals who are dedicated to providing annual philanthropic leadership at $1,500 or more to support Southern Nevada’s only food bank. With their support, Three Square — through a service network of approximately 1,300 community partners — is able to provide nutritious food to more than 137,000 individuals each month. For every $1,500 donated, Three Square can provide 4,500 meals. Three Square offers food assistance to the residents of Clark, Esmeralda, Lincoln and Nye counties.
