Clover Sonoma Brings Milk to the Feed Your City Challenge
Clover Sonoma is proud to support The Ricky Davis Legacy Foundation and SuaveHouse Records in the Feed Your City Challenge. The initiative has become a nationwide tour, beginning in Virginia, rolling through Houston, New York, and now out to the West Coast.
Their mission is simple and impactful: to supply fresh, healthy groceries as well as personal protective equipment to underserved communities through the Feed Your City Challenge. This challenge aims to offer aid and relief to underprivileged families impacted by COVID-19 and economic hardships.
A letter from the Feed Your City Challenge founders states: “Since our enslavement in America in the 1600s, Blacks have been suffering in this country. There is still a vast divide economically, financially, physically, mentally, and emotionally that are real signs of systemic racism. The recent attack of COVID-19 opened a festering wound, finding Blacks were affected by the disease more than any other race. Economics, physical health, and nutrition played a big part in that…”
The groceries are administered through non-contact drive-thru lanes, following CDC social distancing guidelines. The food is boxed up and then hand delivered to community members cars by volunteers and celebrities including retired NBA star Ricky Davis, and music icons Tony Draper, Pusha T, Raphael Saadiq, Trey Songz, Jhene Aiko, DJ Mustard, Roddy Ricch as well as others.
We are proud to donate 6,000 gallons of milk to the Feed Your City Challenge. It is our sincere hope that families in need of nourishment in L.A. are able to receive a gallon of Clover Sonoma milk. We are committed to continuing to support causes that advance social justice, eradicate systemic racism and support underprivileged communities through our Clover Cares Program and our stand with the Justice, Equity, Diversity, Inclusion (J.E.D.I) Collaborative.
“The Coronavirus pandemic has left millions of families without stable employment. More than 54 million people, including 18 million children, may experience food insecurity in 2020.” – Feeding America
