Lineage Logistics helps Los Angeles in food campaign

Los Angeles, USA: Lineage Logistics working with NBA superstar, Anthony Davis’ Family Foundation to the boost the Help Feed the Frontline Fighting Covid-19 – LA campaign.

The campaign was launched by Los Angeles parents who partnered with World Central Kitchen, a nonprofit organization that mobilizes urgently in times of crisis to get meals to people in need. 

In partnership with Chef Brooke Williamson of Playa Provisions, the campaign is sourcing food from Los Angeles restaurants and providing free meals to those working at regional hospitals treating patients with the Covid-19 virus.

Davis and Lineage are also partnering with AEG, that owns and operates the Staples Center, to offer employment opportunities to all center staff unable to work due to the postponement of the NBA and NHL seasons in response to the Covid-19 pandemic.

“We all need to find ways to support our community during these challenging times. Whether it’s the people we work with, the small businesses trying to stay afloat, or the healthcare workers putting themselves in harm’s way to treat the sick, we’ve got to give our support however we can. I appreciate Lineage Logistics stepping up and partnering with me to help launch these programs and look out for our Staples Center team,” Davis said.

NBA superstar, Anthony Davis: “We all need to find ways to support our community during these challenging times. Whether it’s the people we work with or the healthcare workers putting themselves in harm’s way to treat the sick.”

“The devastation caused by Covid-19 means that Lineage’s services are in extreme demand as we work to keep food on the shelves in communities across the United States,” said Kevin Marchetti, co-executive chairman, Lineage. “In the face of this crisis, we are proud to be able to provide opportunities for people who are facing income loss to join the Lineage family and help us ensure families have food to eat.”
