FRESHLY© MEAL DELIVERY TO HOSPITAL FRONT LINES

 

In 2020, as front-line workers battled the COVID-19 pandemic at its height as well as other illnesses and injuries, MPT sent thousands of chef-prepared meals to hospitals across the U.S. Devoted nurses, doctors, technicians and administrative staff members don’t often get the chance for quick, delicious, nutritious meals in the midst of a pandemic. MPT found a way to nourish and rejuvenate these most essential workers — and to encourage and thank them.
