A year ago, Hurricane Harvey made landfall in southeast Texas devastating thousands of homes. Soon after, two more hurricanes hit the United States impacting thousands of people in Florida, Puerto Rico, and the Virgin Islands.
Team Music Is Love wanted to do something to help. We partnered with the Middle Tennessee food relief nonprofit, One Gen Away, to bring mobile food pantries and relief directly to neighbors hit by the storms.
The hurricanes forced many grocery stores to close for extended periods creating food deserts in neighborhoods already hurting after the storms.
We knew food was important in the recovery.
On the one year anniversary of Hurricane Harvey, in August of 2018, we’re marking more than 100K meals delivered through our partner, One Gen Away, to people in need after the storms.
