Meat-free brand Amy’s Kitchen has donated more than 150,000 plant-based meals to food banks and organizations supporting children and the elderly amid the coronavirus (Covid-19) pandemic.

It has also donated 6,000 face masks to local healthcare systems to help with shortages of Personal Protective Equipment (PPE.)

‘Heightened uncertainty’

“As the effects of Covid-19 spread throughout the world and with so many of us experiencing heightened uncertainty, few things feel more important than to have good, safe food available for ourselves and our loved ones,” the company wrote in a statement.

“As a food company, we take this seriously every day, but we are feeling the urgency of it now more than ever.”

‘Staggering’ demand

Amy’s Kitchen has also reported a ‘staggering rise in demand’ for its frozen meals and soups during the crisis and states it is shipping products daily to fast-track food to stores.

“Even as the demand for us to get food out there is great, we are committed to the health and safety of our employees and to ensure that we continue to maintain the highest quality standards of food production,” Amy’s added.

The company has allowed employees deemed as high-risk to not attend work and still receive full pay, and have ‘adjusted operations’ so many employees can work from home.
