Stephen Curry is teaming up with Lineage Logistics Holdings L.L.C. to launch its “Share A Meal” campaign that will provide 100 million meals to people in need in response to the COVID-19 outbreak currently spreading through the states.
Lineage Logistics Holdings is the world’s largest and most innovative provider of temperature-controlled logistics. The company has made a commitment to donate $5 million and the launch of its Share A Meal campaign to help provide 100 million meals* to people in need in response to COVID-19.
“The COVID-19 virus presents extraordinary challenges for moving, storing, and distributing food on a large scale,” said Greg Lehmkuhl, Lineage’s president & CEO says in a written statement. “At Lineage, we’ve built a business dedicated to shepherding food all over the world, which puts us in a unique position to help overcome these challenges. We want to do our part by sharing what we have to offer – including temperature-controlled warehouse space, supply chain logistics expertise, and financial resources.”
Lineage is donating $1 million to the Feeding America® COVID-19 Response Fund and will make a donation of up to $500,000 more to match the contributions made to the fundraiser run by Stephen and Ayesha Curry’s Eat. Learn. Play. Foundation. All the funds will be directed to Feeding America®, the nation’s largest domestic hunger-relief organization.
“We’re working in a myriad of ways to ensure that every person in need, particularly the residents of Oakland, California, has access to the food they need during this COVID-19 crisis,” said Chris Helfrich, CEO of the Eat. Learn. Play. Foundation. “We’re proud to be doing this work alongside Lineage Logistics – they’ve quickly established themselves as an invaluable partner in these critical times.”
“We are very proud to join forces and launch our Share A Meal campaign with Stephen and Ayesha Curry’s Eat. Learn. Play. Foundation to work with Feeding America and provide much-needed meals from coast to coast,” said Kevin Marchetti, co-executive chairman of Lineage Logistics Holdings L.L.C. “We hope to connect with inspirational changemakers like the Curry’s in communities across the United States and around the world in pursuit of our goal of helping to provide 100 million meals to people in need.”
