MSG and Chase partnered to provide $500,000 to feed local workers on the front lines of the COVID-19 pandemic for 8 months this spring. Half of this effort ($250,000) was focused on supporting Tri-State area small business restaurants, including several Chase small business clients, to order large amounts of food for essential and frontline workers across the city (e.g., healthcare workers, first responders, FDNY, NYPD, Sanitation, etc.). Additionally, MSG and Chase made a donation of $250,000 to José Andrés’ World Central Kitchen (www.wck.org) as they help to feed Americans by delivering fresh, packaged meals to communities most in need across the country.
Through this initiative, MSG and Chase thanked our Home Team Heroes by supporting the local small business/restaurant economy, providing food for people working on the front lines against COVID-19, and helping to feed those most in need. In total, we delivered over 18,700 meals from over 50 Chase Small Business clients to 138 different essential worker organizations.
