• London Express Employment Professionals Helps Fight Hunger  

    LONDON, ONTARIO - June 20, 2016 The London Express Employment Professionals office was one of more than 235 Express franchise locations from California to North Carolina to Canada that came together recently at local food banks and pantries across North America to help fight hunger—a growing epidemic that impacts millions of people in the U.S., Canada and around the world every day.

    On Saturday, June 11, offices spent time working and serving at their local food banks, pantries and other nonprofit organizations. In London Ontario, the Express office collected more than 2,700 pounds or $5,500 worth of non-perishable food through food drives that were held leading up to the day of service. The Express team also volunteered their time on June 11th, sorting food at the London Food Bank.

    “As we focus on putting people to work, we’re also excited to volunteer and serve people in need in our community,” said Mike Elliott, London Express franchisee.

    “We were especially thrilled to see the impact our efforts made toward helping children and families find a meal this summer,” Elliott said. “This was a great time to bring families together and show what it looks like to give back.”

    Express Employment Professionals in London has been a Corporate Partner with the City of London and the London Food Bank for the past three years. In total, the London office has collected over 35,000 pounds of food for the London Cares Curb Your Hunger Food Drive.  

    In the past four years, Express offices across North America have donated more than 265,000 meals to nonprofit organizations across North America through their efforts for Brand It Blue Day.

    About the London Food Bank
    When the London Food Bank was first started, co-directors Jane Roy and Glen Pearson determined that it should be largely volunteer run and fully transparent to the community at large. Now in its 28th year, the food bank continues to flourish specifically because of its great volunteers, a committed staff, and a community that continues to donate more supplies year after year.
