Alaska Airlines announced it has donated more than one million meals to help local food banks across the country support the most vulnerable communities affected by the coronavirus outbreak.
Along with the non-profit Alaska Airlines Foundation, the carrier provided more than 896,000 meals through a donation of $200,000 to 14 local food banks in Alaska, Washington, Oregon, California and Hawaii.
In addition, 273,000 meals were provided through donations of fresh food to community food banks due to service changes on board and in airport lounges.
“In this difficult time, food security is a challenge for countless families, with many seeking help for the first time in their lives,” Alaska Airlines Foundation chairman Diana Birkett Rakow said in a statement. “Supporting the growing demands on our local food banks is a critical need and the employees of Alaska Airlines and Horizon Air have been passionately engaged in this effort for many years. We ask you to join all of us in supporting those organizations that are supplying meals to help families have the food they need to thrive.”
