SPRINGFIELD, MO – Convoy of Hope has distributed more than 10 million meals to hundreds of hard-hit communities across the nation, in response to the COVID-19 pandemic. The organization’s fleet of tractor-trailers has been crisscrossing the United States for the last five weeks. They deliver emergency supplies and food, with no plans of slowing down any time soon.

Trucks Deliver Meals As Over 30 Million Unemployment Applications Filed

“At our distribution sites, the line of cars is often stretching 2 miles,” said Hal Donaldson, president. “Lots of people have lost their jobs, and children don’t have access to school lunch programs. We’re hearing heart-wrenching stories and seeing lots of desperate faces.”  Watch Hal Donaldson’s most recent update here. 

Convoy of Hope served more than 10 million meals domestically in the last five weeks.  

According to Donaldson, the generosity of corporations, churches, and individuals has enabled many families to receive much-needed assistance.

“This is a united act of compassion.  Groups and businesses are more concerned about helping people than they are receiving credit. We’re seeing compassion in action on a large scale,” he said.

Kindness is a medicine that Americans need right now. It is being given out across the nation.”
