During the COVID-19 crisis, many businesses are stepping up to help their neighbors.
The local Sysco distribution center is one of those businesses. Sysco has been donating food to the Loomis Union School District for its food services program since campuses were closed.
Sysco works closely with suppliers, customers and government entities, along with key hunger partners like Feeding America in the U.S. and Second Harvest in Canada to find new ways to address increasing food insecurity brought about by these challenging, unprecedented times. The Company’s four-pronged community response strategy supports food redistribution efforts across the global supply chain, including product donations, direct delivery to food banks and other hunger relief organizations, the loaning of refrigerated trucks and facility storage space to increase capacity for local food distribution, and volunteer and staffing support for mobile distribution efforts.
Sysco is the global leader in selling, marketing and distributing food products to restaurants, healthcare and educational facilities, lodging establishments and other customers who prepare meals away from home. Its family of products also includes equipment and supplies for the foodservice and hospitality industries. The company operates 186 distribution facilities serving approximately 400,000 customers. For the fiscal year 2009 that ended June 27, 2009, the company generated more than $36 billion in sales.
