Baldor is a grassroots family company, born from the streets of New York City from only a dream and a lot of hard work. Because we see the value in helping others in our community, we instituted our Baldor Cares program to support others and feed those in need. Each year, Baldor’s donates more than 500,000 lbs of fresh food to support those facing food insecurity and supports several other programs to serve the community.
As a result of the COVID19 pandemic, the number of people needing food assistance is at an all time high and food banks and pantries are straining to meet that demand. Among their challenges is food drive support – a critical way for food donations to reach them during this time of the year. Unfortunately, many organizations that sponsor traditional food drives are unable to this year while they operate virtually.
