Rubix Foods Fights Food Insecurity with $20,000 Donation

All Proceeds Were Awarded to The Max Block Food Pantry

April 19, 2024 – Rubix Foods donated $20,000 to The Max Block Food Pantry as part of the company’s commitment to fighting food insecurity in Northeast Florida. The donation was awarded during a fundraising event for The Max Block Food Pantry on April 18, 2024.

“At Rubix, it’s our mission to solve the biggest problems facing the food industry. While that usually means we’re tackling the latest flavor and ingredient challenges for our customers, we understand the bigger impact that the food we develop plays in building a stronger and healthier Jacksonville,” said Andy Block, chief executive officer. “We’re proud to support The Max Block Food Pantry and the work they are doing to serve our neighbors.”

The Max Block Food Pantry is a critical resource for combating food insecurity in Jacksonville serving more than 19,000 individuals annually. The pantry is named after Max “Mickey” Block, who devoted his life to giving back to the community. He founded Darifair, the first national dairy supplier, in 1981. Andy Block, Mickey’s son, became CEO of Darifair in 2008. The company rebranded to Rubix Foods in 2020 as the organization evolved beyond dairy and into a premiere flavor and ingredient company.

The contribution to The Max Block Food Pantry served as the kickoff to Rubix’s internal philanthropy program called Passion Problems. The purpose of the program is to garner support for food insecure families in Northeast Florida with the help from Rubix employees through donations, educational opportunities and volunteering events.
