Samuel B. Surpasses 1M Meals Donated to Feeding America

This initiative was launched May of 2020.




(PRESS RELEASE) GREAT NECK, NY — Award winning New-York based jewelry designer Samuel B. announced it has just surpassed the 1 million meals mark donated to Feeding America.

Before the COVID-19 pandemic lockdown across the globe, Samuel B. was making plans to give back by opening a school in Bali. When the pandemic hit, the plans were put on pause. During the lockdown, Samuel B. VP of Sales and Marketing Mathew Behnam’s neighborhood in Brooklyn opened a food bank at a local elementary school. Mathew recalls that at that moment he realized the need to provide nourishment to families was unquestionable.

So Behnam and Samuel B. reached out to non-profit group Feeding America, the nation’s largest domestic hunger-relief organization. The company knew they wanted to do something big, and with a lot of perseverance, they became a partner with Feeding America and agreed to donate 10 meals for every piece of jewelry sold to its vast network of independent retailers.

In May of 2020, Samuel B. launched the initiative, providing its independent retailers with signage explaining the partnership with Feeding America and working to ensure communities in need have enough to eat.

“We stand together with Feeding America alongside our retail partners, proud that to date, over one million meals have been provided to help people in need. Our company continues to donate 10 meals for every piece of jewelry purchased, and remains committed to the largest domestic hunger relief organization,” stated Mathew.
