Porsche Cars North America, Inc. is sponsoring pop-up grocery stores in Atlanta and Los Angeles with the goal of providing meals for 1,000 families who have been financially impacted by the pandemic.

In collaboration with Goodr, an Atlanta-based group working to end hunger and reduce food waste, the drive-through food distribution sites will take place on Sept. 10 and 17 in Atlanta, and Sept. 20 and 27 in Los Angeles.

“I am thrilled to continue working alongside the incredible Porsche team to aid families who are still impacted by the COVID-19 pandemic. This partnership provides access to fresh food to one thousand families and helps bridge the hunger gap for so many,” said Jasmine Crowe, Founder & CEO of Goodr Inc.

Porsche is funding each half-day event and hosting them at its Porsche Experience Centers. Atlanta is the company’s North American headquarters.

“Goodr’s dedication to solving hunger and allowing all to dine with dignity is commendable and worth all of our support. Throughout the pandemic, Goodr has worked tirelessly to feed those in need. Porsche is proud to collaborate with such a worthy organization again to support families in our local communities,” said Kjell Gruner, President and CEO of Porsche Cars North America, Inc.

Each pop-up grocery store will serve 250 families with two weeks’ worth of groceries. Families must register for the distribution in Atlanta. If able, families are encouraged to drive-through the pop-up grocery store to adhere to the CDC’s social distancing guidelines. Face masks are required for all attendees.
