Employee’s at Intel’s Chandler facilities spent part of their day Monday fighting to stop hunger — now.

In fact, Stop Hunger Now — an international relief organization coordinating distribution of food and aid to more than 75 countries — was the recipient of the Intel workers’ dedication earlier this week. Local Intel employees packed 10,000 meals at it’s Ocotillo campus Monday. The dehydrated rice and soy meals are easy to transport, carry a long shelf life, and cost 25 cents each to create, a cost covered by Intel.

In 2011, 42 percent of Intel employees engaged in at least one volunteer activity, according to a press release

Through the Intel Involved volunteer matching grant program, the Intel Foundation donates $10 per hour for employees volunteer time. Donations from employee’s volunteer efforts have — totalling more than $1.2 million in grants — have helped more than 550 Arizona organizations and schools.
