Atlanta chef Linton Hopkins has long partnered with Delta to prepare meals for business class passengers to Europe, but nearly all of Delta's flights to Europe have been cut.
Now, Delta is providing trays and packaging supplies to Hopkins for food to be distributed to unemployed hospitality workers. He is delivering more than 5,000 meals a week to people including first responders at Emory University Hospital.
Feeding America is helping Delta distribute donations to agencies such as Georgia Food & Resource Center and organizations in other cities.
Delta is also sending boxed meals to its reservations centers, where its employees have been deluged with calls from millions of passengers canceling flights and asking for refunds.
