Creative Planning donates $1 million to food charity

Creative Planning, the Kansas City, Mo.-based registered investment advisory firm, said that it is increasing its gift to Harvesters, a community food network, to $1 million.

The donation will help assist the food bank’s response to the COVID-19 crisis to deliver food to families that can’t afford food, said Peter Mallouk, Creative Planning’s president and chief investment officer.

“We are fortunate to be in a position to step up to serve our clients, ensure the financial security of our team, and at the same time rise up to serve our community,” Mr. Mallouk said in a release. “We hope this inspires other organizations to contribute however they can.”

Harvesters serves a 26-county area of northwestern Missouri and northeastern Kansas, supplying food and related items to more than 760 not-for-profit agencies including emergency food pantries, soup kitchens, homeless shelters, children’s homes and others.
