Hutton’s McPherson office will be spending several days over the coming weeks to help package meals in partnership with The Outreach Program. The nutrient-dense, shelf-stable, easy-to-prepare meals are in high demand in Kansas and across the U.S.
“In our discussions with local, state and national agencies, they have alerted us to their need and growing concern to provide nutritious food for the elderly,” said Floyd Hammer, founder of The Outreach Program. “Agencies and charities who serve seniors are requesting our food. Although, our model has always been to package these meals with large groups of volunteers at meal packaging events, the limit of ten people and social distancing has brought new challenges and opportunities.”
The meals Hutton is helping to package will be called Senior Assurance Pantry Packs, specifically geared towards seniors and other vulnerable populations.
“We are excited to be able to partner with The Outreach Program in building this new delivery model to help support those in our community in need,” said Ben Hutton, CEO of Hutton.
