Sharing a heritage of dependability dating back more than 100 years.
According to Feeding America, one in six children experience food insecurity. And Maytag knows dependability starts with ensuring that all Americans have access to their most basic needs, especially nourishing food. That's why Maytag has launched the Feel Good Fridge program, in collaboration with Boys & Girls Club of America, giving kids and families a food source they can depend on. The Maytag® Feel Good Fridge is a refrigerator that is stocked with healthy food for Club members and their families to take when in-need.
Maytag kicked off the program in 2021 with 10 refrigerators in Clubs in Los Angeles, New York, Detroit and Grand Rapids and as of April 2022, 20 refrigerators have been placed with another 20 to be placed by the end of the year. Each refrigerator comes with a small grant to get the Club started in filling the fridge with nourishing food, and the Clubs will use local relationships and community support to continue to keep the fridges full. Since the program launched in October 2021, each Maytag® Feel Good Fridge has helped provide healthy food to an estimated 130 Club kids each day.*
