Working with Blue Runner Food Company, OutSolve Donates Money to Send Cans of Beans to Victims
Based in New Orleans, OutSolve knows what its like to recover from a storm. Following Hurricane Katrina 12 years ago, many New Orleanians were left homeless and faced challenging situations the days after the storm.
Louisiana food company, Blue Runner, known for its canned red beans and rice, is working to deliver pallets of beans to Houstonians. Specifically, its goal is to send 200 pallets and feed more than one million people. OutSolve is helping these efforts.
“We’re really feeling for the people in Houston right now,” said Jeremy Mancheski, president of OutSolve. “We know all to well the hardships and emotions that arise following a natural disaster. It’s great to see companies like Blue Runner contributing its resources, and we’re thrilled we can jump in with them and help.”
Houston holds a special place in OutSolve’s hearts. Following Katrina, OutSolve temporarily moved operations to Houston while New Orleans recovered. The city warmly welcomed the company and the least OutSolve can do is support them as they rebuild.
As of Thursday, August 31, Blue Runner’s One Million Meals program had surpassed 550,000 in commitments and shipped its first truck of product to the Houston Food Bank.
