Here's a look at how some of CSP’s past Indie Influencers served their communities amid the COVID-19 pandemic.
Farm 2 Counter
The Farm 2 Counter c-store recently teamed up with Flat Creek Restaurants, a local full-service restaurant, to cook food for the community. When others in the community began donating to the effort, what began as a local cookout turned into more than 300 meals provided daily for multiple weeks.
Delivery startup goPuff has helped local small businesses that closed due to stay-at-home orders by making their products available via delivery. It also committed $1 million in orders to U.S. healthcare workers and offered free order and delivery to employees of participating hospitals.
Lou Perrine’s Gas & Grocery
In addition to donating meals to students in Kenosha, Lou Perrine’s created Lou’s To Go Boxes. The $30 boxes include bacon, a dozen eggs, a gallon of milk, a box of cereal, two frozen pizzas, a loaf of bread, peanut butter, jelly, bananas and two of its own Mama P’s Hoho Cakes to keep the stock-up shopping trip simple.
Mendez Fuel launched a food drive in mid-May and provided more than 5,500 meals to its community members. Meals included a protein with vegetables and a starch.
