In addition to turning its Chobani Cafe in New York City into a temporary food pantry, the dairy company is sending a truck full of food each day from its manufacturing plants in South Edmeston, NY, and Twin Falls, ID, to food banks across the United States.
It’s also amplifying the mission of Feeding America — a charity linking national food products donors with food banks — with its digital and social platforms encouraging donations.
“This is the just the beginning,” said Ulukaya. “We will get through this the only way we know how — together, united.”
Chobani operates under the founding mission of being “better food for more people,” and its 2018 Impact Report furthered this with an ambition to “make universal wellness happen soon.”
Its Chobani Incubator program, meanwhile, provides like-minded food start-ups with grants, mentorship and networking opportunities.
