For the past five years, the company has held a Holiday Give-Back Program, which donates $50 for each cruise ticket sold during the holiday season to the Connecticut Food Bank.
The Connecticut Food Bank partners with food retailers, growers, donors and volunteers to source food and distribute it through a network of community-based programs. Last year the group distributed enough food to provide more than 18m meals.
'We are so pleased to contribute to this fantastic organization and our staff looks forward to volunteering at the Wallingford center each year. There is nothing more rewarding than giving back and directly effecting our local community in a meaningful way, especially during the holiday season,' said Susan Shultz-Gelino, director of sales for American Cruise Lines.
