Our COVID-19 Response: How We’re Supporting Frontline Workers At Revolution Foods

Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, people everywhere are uncertain about the future of their health, safety, and economic security. A significant concern for many people is affording to buy food or accessing services that provide food.We at GreaterGood are dedicated to assisting in COVID-19 relief efforts in multiple ways. As always, we’re continuing to support our flagship programs that help people, pets, and the planet, but we’ve made it our top priority to support the people impacted by the COVID-19 pandemic and those fighting on the front lines.One way we’re doing this is by creating and donating masks. We’re working with our apparel suppliers to retool production plans so they can create tens of thousands of high-quality, medical grade KN95 and N95 masks. All of the masks meet hospital requirements and are being gifted to frontline COVID-19 care and relief workers.One incredible company we’ve donated masks to is a company that is providing nutritious meals to students who are out of school, families in need, and citywide programs.That incredible company is called Revolution Foods.

The high-quality mask that we’re donating
Before the pandemic, Revolution Foods was providing communities and students with nutritious meals. Their mission is to empower children to make better, healthier choices by introducing nutritious school meals at a young age.Since the pandemic began, Revolution Foods has continued to provide meals to their previous partners and even expanded their efforts. In the short time since the crisis began affecting the U.S., they have produced and distributed over 7,240,000 meals in over 150 US cities. In fact, they are serving more meals now than they were before the crisis: at one point, they had reached 151% of their normal volume.

In that one week, they served more than 10,000 daily breakfast, lunch, and supper meals to a partner in West Contra Costa County, CA. Working with World Central Kitchen, they served 100,000 more meals than the week before to communities in Detroit, Baltimore and California. They served 6,000 meals per day to the emergency operations team of the City of San Jose, with plans to up the number of meals tenfold in the coming weeks. In partnership with Compass Group, they expanded beyond West Virginia, where they served 200,000 healthy family meals in multi day “kits” every week, to include distribution to Stamford, CT, and Lynn, MA. And those are just some of the partners they worked with that week!
