Lynden Logistics employees demonstrated their teamwork at a charity event for the nonprofit Feeding Children Everywhere organization. At the Seattle event, eight tables were set up with a team of 12 Lynden employees who worked in an assembly line to produce bagged meals of red lentil jambalaya. The teams competed to complete the most meals. Lynden employees produced 20,000 meals, all of which were sent to Puerto Rico for distribution by Ranger Contigo, an organization helping those affected by Hurricane Maria. Lynden paid for both the event and donated the transportation to Puerto Rico. "Feeding Children Everywhere coordinated a great charitable event featuring loud high-energy music that really got our employees' competitive juices flowing. Everyone felt good about what we were able to accomplish," said Lynden Logistics President John Kaloper.
