Allstate is partnering with Feeding America and local food banks to fund 240,000 meals for families at risk of hunger. The initiative is part of the company’s first “Week of Service” that runs from today until Friday, and includes hundreds of volunteer-led volunteer efforts across the country.

AOL Canada and the Huffington Post have launched The Huffington Post Canada Impact, a new platform to encourage positive change in communities across Canada. The site will feature content from non-profit partners including Free the Children, Lake Ontario Waterkeeper, and Habitat for Humanity Canada.

The city of Long Beach, California has sponsored a public celebration for a new vertical, edible garden demonstration project at the Civic Center. The project includes gardening workshops, cooking demonstrations and food trucks, as well as a recycling and composting component. It is funded by a grant from CBS EcoMedia Inc.’s EcoAd program, with support from Waste Management
