Phoenix Didn't Just Feed the Hungry. It Saved Farms and Restaurants.

Instead of simply handing out its federal CARES funding to food banks, the city of Phoenix used the cash to produce meals by connecting hard-hit farmers with struggling restaurants. Meals were provided free of cost to those who in need. The program was executed by Feed Phoenix, which aimed to employ those who had lost their jobs, as well as provide much-needed economic help to both the farming and restaurant industries in a successful attempt to “create a program to touch as many businesses as possible.”
