Outside: Our Communities
JBT’s positive impact extends to our communities.
Community involvement has always been driven by our employees, not by corporate mandate—our local facilities have determined for themselves the needs of their communities and developed their own strategies and programs to help address them.
With facilities in 25 countries, JBT’s support to its local communities spans a wide spectrum of participation in United Way campaigns, involvement in local food banks, volunteer service at schools, relief agencies and other organizations—these are just a few of the numerous ways JBT gives back to the community.
In 2011 JBT gave back to our communities:
- $275,000 in total grants
- 3,960 in employee volunteer hours
