“I wanted to focus on low-income areas, and we had a high volume of seniors that did not have access to getting meals on their owns,” Brown said.
Meals will be prepared by Gate Gourmet, Inc, a company that provides boxed meals for airlines. The company had been hard hit by reduced travel, and a philanthropic group was looking for a way to help save 900 jobs there, said a City Hall press release.
The meals will then be distributed by local nonprofits, including The Atlanta Community Food Bank, Hosea Feed the Hungry and Safe House Outreach.
