Miyoko’s Creamery has pledged to give out more than 1,500 vegan grilled cheese sandwiches a week to hospital workers and people in need, as the coronavirus (covid 19) crisis continues.

The company will distribute the sandwiches using its food truck, after plans to tour around the US to promote its new products has been postponed due to the pandemic.

Miyoko’s will first attend three hospitals in Sonoma County, California, as well as several food banks in the area.

‘Our heroes’

According to VegNews, Miyoko’s Creamery Founder and CEO Miyoko Schinner, aka the Queen of vegan cheese, said: “Repurposing our food truck is the least we can do for our heroes on the front line and people who are now struggling in our communities.

“While bringing cheese crafted from plants to consumers is about creating a more compassionate food system, compassion also extends to how we treat each other day in and day out.”

Schinner has also spoken about keeping her own workers safe during the pandemic, ensuring employees who ‘have symptoms or are diagnosed positive will get paid for 14 days or until they get cleared by a doctor’.
