CLEVELAND--(BUSINESS WIRE)-- Cleveland-Cliffs Inc. (NYSE: CLF) announced today that it continues to address food insecurity as one of its key areas of social responsibility. The Company held its third annual Souper Bowl Food Drive across all of its operations earlier this year and collected 240,000 pounds of non-perishable food items. In conjunction with the food donations, Cleveland-Cliffs and The Cleveland-Cliffs Foundation have also made cash contributions totaling $500,000 to more than 48 food distribution organizations in the local communities where the Company operates throughout the United States and Canada. The $500,000 donated by Cleveland-Cliffs and The Cleveland-Cliffs Foundation is estimated to provide more than 5.2 million meals, which is based on guidance from hunger relief organizations in the United States.
Cleveland-Cliffs’ Chairman, President and Chief Executive Officer, Lourenco Goncalves, said, “We recognize that food insecurity remains a common concern in communities across the United States. As a leader in the North American steel industry and a prominent employer in the regions where we operate, we believe that Cleveland-Cliffs has an important role to play in addressing this need. Cleveland-Cliffs has shown its commitment to address the problem by donating more than $2.5 million over the past three years to organizations working with individuals and families who are food insecure.
