Combating Food Insecurity During a Pandemic
At the Arizona site, employees have been supporting the St. Mary’s Food Bank to help combat food insecurity. Before the pandemic, a group of onsemi employees volunteered once a month at the charity to pack food boxes. With COVID-19, those organized events stopped; however, food insecurity did not. Pantry staples like peanut butter, canned goods, cereal, beans, rice and pasta were all in demand. To meet that need, ON Semiconductor’s Employee Activity Committee, one of the employee resource groups at the company, created an Early Morning Drive-Thru Food and Water Drive on July 9, 2020.
