Healthy employees mean a healthy business. “You are what you eat” is more than an old adage — just look at our obesity epidemic in the United States.

N.C. School of Science, Math Collects Nearly 560,000 Pounds of Food in One Day
Earlier this month, the North Carolina School of Science and Mathematics (NCSSM) collected nearly 560,000 pounds of food in one day thanks to an army of volunteers, including Beverly Murray, president of R+M and alumna of NCSSM’s first graduating class, the Class of 1982. Murray was part of the school’s Alumni Leadership Committee, which helped organize and promote the March 5 event on the school’s Durham campus. Documentation will be submitted to Guinness World Records later this month to confirm the record-breaking event.
That’s right, the Inter-Faith Food Shuttle was hungry for a new board member and Greg Norton of R+M, a brand experience agency, filled their plate.
R+M announces Executive Vice President Greg Norton has been selected as a new member of the Board of Directors for Inter-Faith Food Shuttle – a non-profit organization that pioneers innovative, transformative solutions designed to end hunger in our Triangle community. Greg’s board appointment will begin January 1, 2011.
R+M announced today the successful rebranding launch of L&M, a fully integrated, year-round supplier of fresh produce. That means if you’ve bought fresh fruits and vegetables over the last 46 years, L&M may have been behind some of that goodness.
“Organizing a drive to collect food for hungry kids was the easiest decision we’ve ever made,” says Susan McDonnell, director of brand culture at R+M who led the charge that collected over 500lbs of nutritious food. Susan attributes their team’s great network of family, friends and clients who share their values of health and well-being.
