GroupOne Background Screening’s David Graves slipped on the hairnet and plastic gloves this morning to participate in the Fearless Food Fight, a campaign to fight hunger sponsored by Blue Cross Blue Shield of Arkansas.

In all, 30-plus volunteers at the SHRM HR Conference and Expo in Hot Springs Arkansas did their part to provide healthy food and fight food insecurity in the region. Graves is hosting a booth later today promoting GroupOne’s background screening services.

“This is a great cause and GroupOne is proud to contribute,” Graves said. “We’re working elbow to elbow packing meals in order to stock food banks and pantries for the state’s most vulnerable areas.”

The United States Department of Agriculture (USDA) ranks Arkansas second in the country for the number of people facing food insecurity. According to the recent report, 19.7 percent, or roughly 1 in 5 Arkansans, do not know where their next meal will come from.

Volunteers at the conference are working together as we speak packing over 28,800 nutritious meals that will soon be shipped to the community.
