Hungry in Reno highlights Delivering with Dignity, a service program where volunteers deliver high-quality meals from locally-owned restaurants directly to vulnerable families. Launched on May 4 of this year by Lt. Governor Kate Marshall and United Way of Northern Nevada and the Sierra.
Over the last five weeks, Delivering with Dignity made and delivered about 10,000 meals in the Truckee Meadows. Driver Kristin Greenstreet says dropping meals off to seniors and veterans is the highlight of her week.
“In nine days we were able to raise $100,000," Marshall explained. "We were able to get a restaurant, we got the United Way of Northern Nevada, We got 3 nonprofits, and these incredible volunteer drivers.”
