Many of you know our founder, Chris Hope, is a full-time UPS employee. Last week, as snow, ice, and freezing temperatures wreaked havoc on Memphis, two 53′ UPS trailers of meal kits were stuck in Memphis and unable to be delivered to the shipper’s customers across the country. The shipper decided to donate all of the meal kits locally, and UPS asked Chris to help make it happen.
On Friday, February 19th, the CHF team transferred 1,700 boxes packed with over 5,000 pre-packaged meals to the Mid-South Food Bank and eight other community organizations. We felt the opportunity to help was critical at a time when so many individuals and families are facing challenges brought about by the pandemic and the extreme winter situation in Memphis.
We were happy to be of service to others in our hometown!
