Multimedia from this Release

The Lawrenceville choo-choo train delivers a coal car of food for the hungry.

In RTP, Santa’s making his list and checking it twice – making sure that Cisco employees donate and participate in the campaign’s volunteer events.

The Kanata R&D team proudly displays their cansculpture of an apple to support their local food bank.

On their way to grab lunch in the cafe, Boxborough employees can’t miss the colorful chalk wall created to raise awareness about the campaign.

Every year, during Cisco’s Global Hunger Relief Campaign, employee teams across our campuses design and construct “cansculptures” —  pieces of art made entirely out of canned goods (which are later donated to a local food bank), to raise awareness about hunger and our annual giving back initiative.

This year, Cisco employees in Lawrenceville, Georgia, Research Triangle Park (RTP), North Carolina, and at the Kanata R&D site in Ottawa, Ontario, Canada, created cansculptures, while a chalkboard artist in Boxborough, Massachusetts created a Global Hunger Relief chalk wall in the cafe.

Cisco’s 2013 Global Hunger Relief Campaign has the goal of raising $1.4 million in employee donations for hunger relief organizations around the world by December 31. With matching, that will equal more than $4 million and 15 million meals.
