The New Normal: Innovation & Partnership

The pandemic forced us to reinvent safe and effective food distribution

Drive-thru food distributions are the new normal for the foreseeable future. But in every challenge lies opportunity. And we’ve been wowed by how quickly restaurants, retailers, other nonprofits, school districts, and government employees have stepped up to help us source food, prepare food, and get that food to the people who need it.
