Throughout the year, NBCUniversal employees have been volunteering with the Hollywood Food Coalition (HFC) to serve hundreds of freshly prepared meals to the homeless and food insecure as part of Comcast NBCUnites, the company’s new CSR initiative that encourages employees to give back to the communities where they live and work.
Volunteer activities include setting up the dining area, pouring beverages, clearing plates, cleaning up, and interacting with the guests during their meal.
In addition to volunteering, NBCUniversal film and television productions in Los Angeles partner with the HFC throughout the year to donate excess catering. In 2018 alone, productions donated over 12,000lbs of food to the HFC, equaling over 10,000 meals for underserved individuals in Hollywood.
