  • On May 3, 2021, Project Angel Food welcomed back kitchen volunteers for the first time in 13 months due to a pause for COVID-19 safety measures.
  • Project Angel Food works with more than 200 community partners such as Being Alive which refers clients to Project Angel Food’s life-saving Medically Tailored Meal Program.

The report is filled with stories from clients, volunteers, staff members, community partners and board members that inspire and remind readers of the life-and-death stakes of Project Angel Food’s vital work. It offers unique insights into Project Angel Food’s operations, our mission, the people we serve, and the people who make it all work, like Executive Chef John Gordon, who shared this perspective, “As gas and food prices continue to increase, so does the cost of preparing nutritious Medically Tailored Meals. But we can’t cut corners — the quality and commitment to our critically ill clients must continue to meet our highest standards of excellence.”

The report was designed by Brad Bessey, Project Angel Food’s Director of Communications, and Holly Blanks with gorgeous photography provided by Noe Garcia, Lakpathy Wijesekara, and Anne Fishbein. For the full report click here.
