Postmates Partners With NFL Stars Aaron Rodgers And Jerry Rice To Give Back This Thanksgiving As A Part Of Season-Long Commitment To All 30 NFL Cities

In an Effort to Fight Food Insecurity, Postmates Commits to Combating Hunger in the 30 Cities that the 32 NFL Teams Call Home

PR Newswire

SAN FRANCISCO, Nov. 24, 2020 /PRNewswire/ -- As the US prepares to celebrate Thanksgiving this year, Postmates has partnered with NFL greats Aaron Rodgers and Jerry Rice to give back to their local communities in Green Bay and San Francisco respectively. Postmates, in partnership with the NFL has made a commitment to provide meals to those in need across 30 cities, representing all 32 teams, throughout the country during the 2020-21 season.

Aaron Rodgers made a Postmates delivery to the deserving staff and patients at the HSHS St. Vincent Children's Hospital in Green Bay. The children in the hospital as well as the staff were treated to gifts from Rodgers and Postmates delivered a variety of meals from Nectar.

"Just want to send a big thank you...You are amazing people and what you're doing for this city, taking care of our kids is so important and so appreciated." said Rodgers in a video greeting to the patients and staff of HSHS St. Vincent Children's Hospital.

Food insecurity is a loss of access to affordable and nutritious food and this complex problem has worsened for many communities amidst COVID-19. It impacts one in six people (or 50m, up from 35m pre COVID), including one in four children (17m children) according to Feeding America.

"In partnering with the NFL, we knew we'd be able to help make a difference in local communities across the country," said Eric Edge, SVP, Marketing & Communications, Postmates. "By partnering with NFL players and teams, we've been able to give back to front line workers as well as shine a light on food insecurity while highlighting ways to help our local communities."

In addition to the delivery at HSHS St. Vincent Children's Hospital, Rodgers also made a donation to Paul's Pantry to go towards their Thanksgiving meal distribution for 1,400+ families. He also sent swag to the volunteers at that pantry.

Postmates is partnering with the Jerry Rice Foundation, La Cocina and the Tenderloin Neighborhood Development Corporation (TNDC) to provide funding and deliver Thanksgiving week meals prepared by La Cocina entrepreneurs to food insecure residents of TNDC buildings.

Food insecurity is an issue that Postmates has been committed to for several years. To address it, Postmates introduced FoodFight! in 2018. While providing access to healthy food at shelters Postmates found a convenient way for restaurants to also donate leftovers -- something that can be logistically challenging.

Together with the NFL, Postmates will continue to work with all of the teams in the league to donate meals to communities in need.
