WCK is working across America to safely distribute individually packaged, nutritious meals to those who need support – for children and families to pick up and take home, as well as delivery to seniors who cannot venture outside and healthcare workers on the frontline. WCK is now active in 200 cities and has served over 9 million fresh meals in response to the COVID-19 pandemic.

Since its founding, WCK has provided more than 20 million chef-prepared meals for those in need. The Rotary Club of New York is now collaborating with this organization and thus helping both farmers and the needy in New York City receiving free meals.
