Lockheed Martin business areas and functional organizations across the nation are finding new ways to support local communities. With most employees teleworking, the demand for on-site food service is much lower, we are finding creative ways to keep working with our food service providers while helping local communities at the same time.
“During this unprecedented time, it is more critical than ever to come together—with our community organizations, local governments and neighbors—and provide support to those who need it most,” says Missiles and Fire Control Community Relations Manager Allison Rivera. “Together, we can have a substantial impact.”
Lockheed Martin Aeronautics in Fort Worth, Texas, and its food service provider, Compass, are preparing 4,200 meals each week for the next month to the Presbyterian Night Shelter, the Salvation Army and (beginning in May) the Union Gospel Mission.
The Aeronautics team is also preparing food donations in Marietta, Georgia, and Palmdale, California. Contributions of 1,250 meals per week will support the Veterans Empowerment Organization MUST Ministries and Hosea Feed the Hungry in Marietta, Georgia. Grace Resources will be receiving 600 meals per week for the next month in Palmdale, California.
