Hello Fresh Partners with St. Mary's to distribute meals

The HelloFresh Meals With Meaning Program Provides Local Phoenix Residents with Free Meal Kits to Make Healthy, Delicious Meals at Home

NEW YORK – HelloFresh, BB #:299518 the world’s leading meal kit company, St. Mary’s Food Bank, and Total Quality Logistics BB #:203922, one of the largest freight brokerage and third-party logistics firms in North America, have teamed up as part of HelloFresh’s Meals With Meaning program to provide free meal kits to families and seniors facing food insecurity in Phoenix.

With the help of local volunteers, the program provides 2,000 home delivered meal kits each week through St. Mary’s Commodity Supplemental Food Program and will distribute nearly 300,000 meals through the end of the year.

Each week, volunteers with St. Mary’s Food Bank will pack 8,000 meals beginning Monday, June 13th. The Meals with Meaning meal kits will be delivered directly to resident homes.

With fresh ingredients provided directly from HelloFresh’s distribution center in Phoenix, each meal kit consists of a step-by-step recipe card and all of the produce and proteins needed to make hearty meals like Squash & Bean Pasta with Creamy Sauce, BBQ Chicken with Mashed Potatoes & Carrots, Cheesy Chicken Skillet with Caramelized Onions, Rice & Squash, and Cheesy Taco Skillet with Beans, Bell Pepper & Tomato. The ingredients can also be used to create any dish the recipient would like based on their individual tastes or dietary needs.

“Combating hunger and assisting those facing food insecurity is a responsibility we take seriously at HelloFresh so we are looking forward to bringing our Meals with Meaning program to the Phoenix community,” said Uwe Voss, CEO of HelloFresh US. “We are so thankful to St. Mary’s Food Bank and TQL for partnering with us so that families in need have access to fresh and healthy meals.”

“With skyrocketing inflation hitting just as several COVID-related government programs are ending, we’ve seen a concerning increase in the number of families and seniors who are turning to the food bank for help,” St. Mary’s President and CEO Tom Kertis said. “These incredible meal kits provided by HelloFresh are very much appreciated and will help us get the food directly to the most vulnerable clients in our community.”

“We are thrilled to donate our expertise to ease the logistics pressures felt by all and to cover the transportation cost of getting healthy food in the hands of those that need it through our Moves that Matter program,” TQL President Kerry Byrne said. “It’s a special partnership between HelloFresh, St. Mary’s Food Bank and TQL that proves, through collaboration along all steps in the supply chain, we can address food insecurity.”

The HelloFresh Meals with Meaning program first launched in 2020 as a direct response to the rising rates of food insecurity intensified by the COVID-19 pandemic. The program operates in Newark, NJ, Brooklyn, Dallas/Ft. Worth, Atlanta and Phoenix. Since inception, HelloFresh has provided nearly 3 million meals through Meals with Meaning with the help of local community organizers who volunteer their time to pack and distribute the meal kits.
