Our supply chain and logistics expertise provide unique opportunities for Lineage to donate time and skills to our charitable partners – including Feeding America and the Global Foodbanking Network. Our network of over 300 facilities and 16,000+ team members are also exceptionally well-positioned to provide support, emergency capacity, and supply chain expertise to our nearby food bank partners.
In 2019 alone, Lineage team members donated more than 40,000 pounds of food through food drives and volunteered more than 3,800 hours at food banks, helping to pack nearly one million meals for food-insecure families nationwide.
Lineage is proud to live our purpose – to transform the food supply chain to eliminate waste and help feed the world – during this time and every day we come to work.
A greater need inspires greater action.
Rewind back to March 2020. The coronavirus was spreading quickly and many countries were hit hard when the novel virus reached their shores. While working to keep the world’s food supply chain running, Lineage saw firsthand how economic upheavals were impacting the jobs and lives of millions of people. To help out, we launched the “Share A Meal” campaign with the goal of donating the equivalent of 100 million meals to people in need who were impacted by COVID-19.
As a result of the donations we made in support of the Share A Meal campaign, Lineage was named a Visionary Partner of Feeding America. It’s a designation all of our people can take honor in achieving and one we’ll look to as we continue our work of helping to feed the world.
