U.S. Forensic Donates Meals to Communities Affected by Hurricane Ida
U.S. Forensic donated 40,000 meals to Second Harvest Food Bank this week to aid Hurricane Ida disaster recovery efforts. The meals will be delivered to people in need in 14 parishes that were affected by Hurricane Ida. Since the storm, Second Harvest has produced and delivered more than 105,000 hot meals.
As lifelong New Orleanians, we have seen firsthand how devastating hurricanes can be,” said Gary Bell, managing partner of U.S. Forensic. “We wanted to find a way to help as many people as possible and felt donating to Second Harvest would be the best, fastest way to get food and supplies to people in our community who are really struggling.”
To date, Second Harvest has delivered 4.2 million pounds of food, water, and supplies to survivors of Hurricane Ida through 802 food distribution locations throughout 14 parishes.
We’re so grateful for this generous gift from U.S. Forensic, which will help provide 40,000 meals to people rebuilding from Hurricane Ida. Partnerships like these make it possible for us to be ready for the next emergency, as well as fight the everyday disaster of hunger in our community,” said Natalie Jayroe, Second Harvest president and CEO.
