YourFMO, a national, non-governmental, independent marketing organization that provides agents with valuable resources they need to help clients decide on Medicare options, announced that it has reached a major milestone in its partnership with Feeding America: YourFMO has donated in excess of 10 million meals since 2019.

Since starting its partnership with Feeding America, YourFMO has donated the equivalent of 10 meals* for every effective insurance enrollment that agents submit through the YourFMO Enrollment Center.

When we started our partnership with Feeding America, the idea of donating the equivalent of 1 million meals seemed like an ambitious goal, said Matthew Graham, senior vice president and YourFMO program leader. The independent agents who embrace our enrollment center in Q4 of 2023 fueled us to surpass this 10-million-meal milestone.

YourFMO and Feeding America share a common goal to support Americas senior population. According to Feeding America, 5.5 million seniors (1 in 14 or 7.1%), age 60 and older, were food insecure in 2021. Every state is home to seniors and older adults who experience food insecurity.

Feeding America is committed to an America where no one is hungry. The organization partners with people experiencing food insecurity, policymakers, organizations and supporters, united with them in a movement to end hunger.

We are so grateful for partners like YourFMO, whose commitment to Feeding America has resulted in a remarkable milestone of 10 million meals donated since 2019, said Lauren Biedron, Feeding Americas Senior Vice President of Corporate Partnerships. Their dedication has had a far-reaching impact on local food banks and their surrounding communities in addressing hunger, including the critical issue of senior hunger.

YourFMOs closest business partners appreciate the opportunity to support Feeding America when they use the enrollment center. Many of the companies in the AmeriLife portfolio rely on YourFMOs platform to efficiently process Medicare enrollments, said Scotty Elliott, Chief Distribution Officer of Health at AmeriLife. The ability to also play a role in helping to feed seniors who are battling food insecurities is a benefit that cant be overstated.

YourFMOs efforts to support Feeding America have also helped inspire AmeriLifes corporate giving efforts. During last years Valspar Championship, AmeriLife in partnership with local affiliate Feeding Tampa Bay sponsored a food donation drive at the golf tournament. Fans eagerly responded by donating 5,000 pounds of shelf-stable food items, and the two partners look forward to hosting this food drive activation once again during the final round of the 2024 Valspar Championship on Sunday, March 24. YourFMO helped introduce us to the worthwhile efforts of Feeding America, said Elliott. Were proud to hold another donation drive at this years tournament and help those in our community who are facing hunger.

YourFMO sees its partnership with Feeding America as an ongoing commitment. I know I can speak for the entire YourFMO team in saying were incredibly grateful for the support from our independent agents who helped us reach 10 million donated meals, added Graham. Im excited to see how many more meals we can donate and how many neighbors in need we can support in 2024 and in years to come.
