Curves supports communities nationwide with 8th Annual Food Drive

The Rockford area Curves will be participating in the Curves Food Drive to benefit local food banks.

Last year, the Curves Food Drive collected 10.6 million pounds of food for local communities all over the world. That’s almost 3 million more pounds than the year before!

To celebrate the generosity of the community, Curves is waiving its normal service fee for any new member who brings in a bag of non-perishable groceries and joins between February 27 and March 11. Last year, more than 251,000 new members joined Curves during the Food Drive.

Others wishing to donate may drop off non-perishable food items at Curves Monday through Saturday during business hours through the month of March.

“The Curves Food Drive promotion is always exciting,” said Jayne Doty, the general manager of the Rockford-area clubs. “We have a chance to help so many people at a time when the food banks are lowest, while we assist more women in reaching their fitness and weight loss goals. It’s a win-win situation for everyone, and we’re very proud to participate.”

With nearly 10,000 locations worldwide, Curves is the largest fitness franchise and the fastest-growing franchise company in history. More than 4 million women belong to the Curves community.
