COVID-19: Making an Impact
Meals Are Still Getting Packed
Our new CDC-guided distance packing model is allowing volunteers to continue putting healthy meals on tables safely. Take a look at our first distance packing event in Colorado.
COVID-19 is causing daily changes to everyone in the community. Uncertainty is at an all time high. People are dealing with challenges they never expected and others are having their usual challenges magnified. Those in the community that always struggle with food insecurity are struggling even more during this time.
What's Being Done
Instead of allowing social distancing guidelines to be a roadblock, hunger-relief organizations have developed detours. At Harvest Pack, after distributing the remaining meals remaining in our warehouse from previous events to make sure they are getting to the tables of the local community. Our staff and their families have set up private meal packing shifts to safely put hundreds of meals on many more tables. We are working hard to secure funding to safely feed families as they navigate this pandemic.
All of this means one thing: we will keep our communities fed. Working together is necessary in a time like this. Healthy food on every table has always been our mission and we have always done it with the help of our neighbors. COVID-19 will not change that.
