The spread of COVID-19 has disrupted lives across the globe. Over the past few weeks and months, personal and professional plans have been turned upside down: weddings have been cancelled, and businesses have shuttered. Many people in the U.S. have found themselves fearing for their loved ones, and for their own safety. With the novel coronavirus continuing to spread, there’s no denying that our most vulnerable communities will be hit the hardest. As the nation and the world continue to grapple with this uncertainty, we’re wondering, what can we do to help?
Feeding America® is a United States–based nonprofit organization. Their nationwide network of food banks is responsible for feeding more than 40 million people annually. They accomplish this important work with a network of food pantries, soup kitchens, shelters, and other community-based agencies. Feeding America is uniquely equipped to help those who are most at risk, including children, seniors, and those who have lost income as a result of COVID-19.
In this time of crisis, Blue Apron is partnering with Aspiration, which offers banking services with a conscience, to support the food community. Not only will we continue to serve our customers, we’re striving to help those in need as well. That’s why we’ve chosen to support Feeding America’s mission to end hunger and to protect vulnerable communities.
