Exact Macola, provider of ERP and business software with headquarters in Columbus, Ohio, recently announced the details of its community service programs to fight hunger both locally in Ohio and across the Americas.

The company has provided financial support, volunteerism and product donations to food banks across the country since 2015 in order to better serve their communities. This year, Macola will be participating in the Empty Bowls Project - an international grassroots effort that raises money and awareness on ending hunger issues.

Macola is also behind the Macola Fights Hunger initiative in Central Ohio, which sees Macola employees, friends and family donating to the Mid-Ohio Foodbank on behalf of the company.

"Our employees, partners and customers are passionate about fighting hunger in the Americas," said Alison Forsythe, managing director of Macola, in a statement. "For that reason, we have galvanized our resources with corporate philanthropy and employee volunteerism to support various programs that reflect this commitment."

Earlier this year, Macola kicked off its participation in the Empty Bowls Project by painting bowls to auction off at various events throughout the year. The organization's largest auction will be at their annual customer conference, Exact Macola Evolve, set for April 19-22 in Atlanta, GA, with all proceeds going towards the Atlanta Community Food Bank.

Exact Macola Evolve 2016 will focus on trends and disruptions in the manufacturing and distribution markets, aims to provide attendees -- C-level executives, consultants, business management, IT professionals and daily users of Exact Macola solutions -- with new tools and ideas to accelerate company growth, transform their businesses and positively impact bottom lines.
