Held this past February, West’s fourth annual Global Food Drive was another incredible success with locations around the globe joining together to support the communities where we live and work.
Our commitment to giving back was evident in the astounding 65,969 pounds of food that was collected in just two weeks. That’s an impressive 9,000+ pounds more than we gathered last year to donate to local charities and food banks!
Our total results exceeded our goal of 5 pounds per team member. In total pounds collected, some of our standout performers were Singapore with 7,120 pounds and Brazil with the biggest year over year increase from 1,731 pounds in 2018 to 3,596 pounds in 2019. To date, we’ve collected and distributed 191,693 pounds globally in our first four years.
The food gathered during this drive was donated to more than 40 charities and food banks around the world to fight hunger by helping those in need. Some recipients of our donations included:

Working at West means being part of a culture of giving and working by the side of the communities where we operate. Our team members are passionate about making a difference and donate considerable time and resources through our corporate giving and volunteer programs. West’s giving strategy focuses on three elements: corporate giving through direct charitable gifts made by West Pharmaceutical Services, Inc., scholarships and matching gifts awarded through the Herman O. West Foundation, an independently managed 501(c)(3) entity and our team member-led giving program, West without Borders*.

This past February, our team members around the world came together to help fight hunger in their local communities during our fifth annual global food drive. As the global community navigates the evolving challenges of the COVID-19 situation, having a stable food supply is even more important. We are proud of our team members for their incredible generosity. Their donations are needed now more than ever.
From all corners of the globe, our team members banded together to uplift their local communities during our Sixth Annual Global Food Drive. The COVID pandemic has contributed to a severe increase in global food insecurity, due to loss of incomes, disruptions in food supply chains, and other factors resulting from COVID. Our communities are in acute need of our help more than ever.
West’s Ambassador Interns in Exton assisted the local West Chester Food Cupboard’s move into their new, larger facility. They packed and loaded 80,000 pounds of food at the Food Cupboard’s previous site, and then moved the supplies to the new facility. The West Chester Food Cupboard’s move enables the organization to serve even more clients, and was made possible through the Ambassador Interns’ help.
