“Feeding America is incredibly grateful for the support that we’ve received from Viant as we seek out new ways to raise donations to help feed the millions of people turning to food banks for help,” said Christine Greeley, VP, Brand, Feeding America. “With projections indicating more than 54 million people could be at risk of hunger this year due to COVID-19, the incoming donations spurred by our campaign executed through their Adelphic technology, will help make a difference for our neighbors in need.”
“Philanthropy is very much part of our culture and reflected in our Viant Cares program, which encourages volunteer work and contributions to causes near and dear to our employees. As many around the world have watched the unprecedented impact that COVID-19 has had, Viant was eager to do our part and devote resources to an organization with a mission like Feeding America,” said Tim Vanderhook, Co-Founder & CEO, Viant Technology. “In doing so, we were happy to see that not only did the campaign drive results and exceed target benchmarks but most importantly, it drove donations during this critical moment in time.”
