MEALS INITIATIVE: Supporting restaurants to make meals to feed the hungry

35 million people in the United States struggled with hunger in 2019. By the end of 2020, due to the effects of the coronavirus pandemic, more than 50 million people may experience food insecurity, including a potential 17 million children, according to Feeding America. That’s one in six Americans and one in four children—nearly a 50 percent increase from 2019.

While hunger was on the rise in 2020, the restaurant industry suffered a huge setback as lockdowns and stay at home orders put thousands of family owned operations out of business. An estimated 99 percent of companies in the industry are family-owned small businesses with fewer than 50 employees. The Meals Initiative will match the meals with local shelters who are feeding the hungry. Your donations will directly support restaurants to feed the hungry.

Together, we can create new normals that build each other up!
