Novi, Michigan-based Lineage Logistics, a provider of temperature-controlled logistics solutions, says it has achieved the goal of its “Share A Meal” campaign to help provide 100 million meals to people in need in response to COVID-19.

As a result of financial donations made to Feeding America in support of the campaign, Lineage has been named as a Visionary Partner of Feeding America, the nation’s largest domestic hunger-relief organization. Feeding America Visionary Partners are recognized for their contributions or commitments of $4 million or more, donations of 40 million pounds or more of food and grocery products, or combined gifts of $2 million or more and 20 million pounds or more of food and grocery products. The announcement coincides with Feeding America’s Hunger Action Month in September, which calls upon people across the United States to stand together with the Feeding America network to fight hunger.

“Lineage is in a unique position to directly help overcome the challenges of food insecurity, and I’m incredibly proud to lead a company that continues to so actively live out our purpose of helping to feed the world,” said Greg Lehmkuhl, Lineage’s president and CEO. “We are extremely grateful for all of our ‘Share A Meal’ partners who came on board to support the campaign. Without each and every one of them, it simply would not have been possible to achieve such an ambitious goal.”

Lineage launched its “Share A Meal” campaign on March 23, calling on global influencers, individuals and food chain leaders to help provide 100 million meals to people affected by COVID-19 and the global food emergency that followed the pandemic’s onset. The campaign took a multi-faceted, innovative approach to raise awareness and funds which involved donations of time, expertise, services and employment.

“Being named as a Feeding America Visionary Partner is proof of our staunch commitment to the organization and its incredible mission,” said Kevin Marchetti, co-founder and managing partner of Bay Grove, the principal investment firm backing Lineage. “We take our responsibility to help feed the world extremely seriously, and we see it as part of our charge not only to make an impact but also to continue spreading awareness around the issue of food waste and insecurity, particularly during Hunger Action Month.”

Established in 2019, Lineage Logistics‘ partnership with Feeding America will continue to support the fight against hunger beyond the impacts of COVID-19. Lineage lends its supply chain expertise in the areas of logistics, safety, strategy management and data science to help reduce process waste and streamline their operations to more efficiently serve communities in need.
