A delivery management automation platform is providing logistical support to ensure disadvantaged Floridians have fresh-cooked meals seven days a week.
GetSwift will provide order management, delivery and routing support to a crisis management program run by the state of Florida to sustain daily meal delivery during the coronavirus pandemic. The company will partner with Feed The Need of Florida and Meals of Love, in conjunction with the Florida Department of Elder Affairs (DOEA) and restaurant partners such as the 4R Restaurant Group, operator of 4 Rivers Smokehouse restaurants, in the program.
The emergency service will reach up to all 67 counties in Florida. 4 Rivers Smokehouse locations, along with other Florida restaurants, will reconfigure their food production facilities to produce daily meals in a cost-efficient manner.
“We are honored to be working with the State of Florida, Meals of Love, Feed the Need of Florida and 4R Restaurant Group on such a critical initiative to reach vulnerable Floridians in this extraordinary time of need,” said Bane Hunter, CEO of GetSwift. “We are looking forward to supporting all of other States that are in the process of implementing similar measures. Now is the time to stand united as we meet one of the greatest challenges we face as a nation”
GetSwift, based in New York City, provides delivery logistics and staff management services to clients across the U.S. and around the world. The total value of the agreement cannot be determined due the unpredictability of the total number of meals that will be delivered on a daily basis.
