The sustainably-focused food delivery startup MacroPlate announced today its partnership with a non-profit affordable housing provider, Pathways To Your Future, to supply families in need across Los Angeles County with more than 2,000 pre-cooked nutritious meals throughout the 2022 holiday season and the coming year, as well as a Thanksgiving feast for 64 unhoused individuals.
The partnership will fulfill the non-profit’s long-term efforts to source consistent, high-quality meals for underserved families, individuals, and youth and allow Pathways To Your Future to offer meal plans that fit with dietary restrictions and certain health conditions. “We are so proud to officially announce this partnership and provide nutritious meal options for those who need them most,” said Leo Malekian, founder and CEO of MacroPlate. “MacroPlate’s mission has always been to source the highest quality ingredients from local farms and give back to the community in ways that will have lasting impacts. I know our work with Pathways will help achieve this aim, and I couldn’t be happier about the hundreds of families we’ll have the privilege of helping now and in the foreseeable future.”
Though different, MacroPlate and Pathways To Your Future have both remained focused on giving back to local communities. For MacroPlate, this has taken the form of 1:1 meal donations for every purchase and carbon offsets through donations to The Conservation Fund. Similarly, Pathways To You Future has provided comprehensive education, health, and human services to reduce homelessness of underserved individuals, youth, and families while promoting their development and enriching the communities where they live.
“This partnership is a game changer for so many we serve across Los Angeles County,” said Gerald E. Thompson, founder and Executive Director of Pathways To Your Future. “Not only will high-quality meals become the norm but with a level of variety and adaptability we’ve never seen before. This speaks to our core value of providing services that fundamentally enrich and uplift the community, and we couldn’t be more thankful for MacroPlate’s active involvement in this process.”
