Prysmian Group donated food items to FUEL NKU as part of their Souper Bowl food drive – no loss here


In honor of the Cincinnati Bengals’ Super Bowl run, Prysmian Group donated 2,005 food items to FUEL NKU following the company’s Souper Bowl food drive.

Prysmian’s Souper Bowl food drive ran from January 31 through February 11, leading up to the Bengals’ Super Bowl LVI appearance against the Los Angeles Rams. The campaign goal was to collect 1,989 items, marking the last time the Bengals reached the Super Bowl. However, the goal was exceeded as Prysmian collected 2,005 items.

“We are happy to surpass our goal and collect so many items for FUEL NKU,” said Andrea Pirondini, CEO of Prysmian, North America. “The Super Bowl loss stings, but we still have something to celebrate. Thank you to the Bengals for giving the city such an incredible experience…fuel for this team’s bright future.

FUEL NKU is open to all NKU students and also supports post-traditional learners like college-going parents as well as international students and more. For the fall 2021 semester, FUEL NKU served over 1,000 students and distributed over 42,000 books of food, beverages and personal products.

“This donation campaign means so much to FUEL NKU,” said Nick Bliven, FUEL NKU Program Coordinator. “Our pantry receives more than 300 student visitors per week, which makes community partners all the more essential to our mission. Thank you to all members of the Prysmian team for joining the cause to support our students.

Prysmian Group acquired General Cable in 2018 and continues to be involved in Northern Kentucky. Prysmian Group re-established its Engagement and Outreach Committee to increase employee engagement and find ways to give back to the community. Planning for the food drive began before the Bengals won the AFC championship, but organizers had hoped the team would continue its winning streak.

“I thought it would be fun to tie the two things together with the pun, super/supper. Even with the loss, the Bengals had a great year and we filled four carts with food donations for FUEL,” said Jan Rouse, Prysmian’s internal communications manager.
