Our corporate giving philosophy involves two main philanthropic pillars, advancing STEM education and improving the health and wellbeing of the community. At Perficient, we take pride in volunteering our time, resources, and skills to promote positive change. This year, Perficient’s Giving Employee Resource Group (ERG) collaborated with our community partner, Feeding America, to support Hunger Action Month (HAM), a global campaign to fight food insecurity.
Feeding America is the nation’s largest domestic hunger-relief organization, working to connect people with food and end hunger. The organization’s mission is to advance change in America by ensuring equitable access to nutritious food in partnership with food banks, policymakers, supporters, and the communities they serve.
During the month of September, Perficient colleagues united across the globe to share resources, volunteer at food banks, and make donations to ensure a brighter world.
Announcing Perficient’s 2023 HAM Results
During HAM, the Giving ERG challenged each Perficient office to donate at least 50 pounds of food in support of ending world hunger. The offices that made the biggest impact through their generosity, creativity, and inspiring approaches would be named the 2023 HAM Champions. All global Perficient offices became temporary food donation centers where colleagues could bring non-perishable food items. All items would then be donated to area food banks.
Through our collective efforts, Perficient donated more than 8,500 pounds of food and 5,000 meals to support those in need.
Today, we’re excited to announce that our Nagpur and Atlanta offices are our 2023 HAM Champions!

Colleagues in Nagpur came together to pool their resources and generously fill 70 bags full of essential groceries. The team then distributed each bag to underprivileged families in the area, accounting for more than 2,300 pounds of food – an incredible achievement.
Our Atlanta colleagues supported HAM in several ways. What set them apart was their “Pie a Director” event where colleagues who donated at least five pounds of food could pie a Director of their choice in the face. All told, colleagues in our Atlanta office donated more than 250 pounds of food.
While each Perficient office showed true spirit to make a difference during HAM, these two surpassed our expectations. Honorable mentions include our colleagues in Puerto Rico, a small team that rallied to donate a significant amount of food, and Chennai, who coordinated an impressive food drive that’s providing nutritious food to those in need in their community.
These are just a few of the selfless acts found across our global company during HAM. Take a look at the blogs below to read how our global colleagues made a difference:

How Can You Give Back?
The fight against food insecurity does not end in September! No matter the time of year, any donation, volunteer effort, and act of kindness can impact lives. Through our Perficient Gives Charitable Match program, all Perficient colleagues based in the U.S. can donate to charities of their choice. The monetary donations, matched by Perficient, will provide necessary support for those in need.
Perficient’s partnership with Feeding America, along with other charitable organizations, is helping to create a better world for the next generation. We appreciate the generosity of each colleague, friend, and family member who contributed to our 2023 HAM campaign.
