Amidst the COVID-19 health crisis, innovative industry leaders are working to use their resources to help those most affected. To do its part, Formica Corporation will donate up to 500,000 meals to Feeding America food banks across the country through its educational Lunch & Learn program.
This donation will assist in the organization’s efforts to fuel its 200 food banks and 6,000 pantries, which are working overtime in supplying families who are out of work and/or food insecure.
Formica’s Lunch & Learn activities are also a valuable resource for design industry professionals looking to boost their skills during these uncertain times. The mini seminars are available as a key resource for architects and designers, and videos are available on the Formica Group North America YouTube (or through the playlist embedded in this article.)
The five short training videos now available include topics such as Hand Crafted – The 2020 Living Impressions Collection; Stylish Wall Protection – HardStop Decorative Protection Panels; IMM Cologne – Design Trends Recap with Gerri Chmiel; London Design Festival – Design Trends Recap with Renee Hytry Derrington; and Integrating Technology with Design – Intentek Wireless Charging Surface.
“The health and safety of our employees, customers and their communities is our No. 1 priority during this unprecedented time, and we’re continually looking for ways to offer support,” said Mitch Quint, president of Formica Corporation North America, in a press release. “The Feeding America and Formica Corporation Lunch & Learn partnership is just one of many ways we’re continuing to help professionals, but more importantly, doing more to assist communities across the country by addressing rising food insecurity.”
For every view the videos receive through April 30, 2020, Formica will also be donating an additional 10 meals to Feeding America — so you can give back while learning a new aspect of the trade!
