The plant-based meat company Beyond Meat will donate one million burgers in the coming 30 days to food banks, frontline workers and organizations in need during the corona crisis.
As we all come together to get through these challenging times, we feel a deep responsibility to give back by providing access to good, nourishing meals at no cost, the company said in a statement on their website about their Feed A Million+ pledge.
They hope to make lives easier with their donation. They will give their burgers to food banks, hospitals, community centers, and other frontline organizations in the United States. People can also nominate causes for them to donate to.
The company is getting a lot of praise on their social media with people saying ‘This is Beyond generous’, ‘Above and beyond’ and ‘Thank you ❤ From a frontline worker who loves your products!’
Lila Dibella asked them not to forget about the smaller hospitals in the comments on their Instagram post: “Please don’t forget about the small community not-for-profit hospitals and the communities they serve. The community has a lot of people who lost their jobs + immigrants that will not get a relief check; donations are needed in the community.”
Beyond Meat is a Los Angeles-based producer of plant-based meat substitutes founded in 2009 by Ethan Brown.
