About the Clinton Foundation
Building on a lifetime of public service, President Clinton established the Clinton Foundation on the simple belief that everyone deserves a chance to succeed, everyone has a responsibility to act, and we all do better when we work together. For nearly two decades, those values have energized the work of the Foundation in overcoming complex challenges and improving the lives of people across the United States and around the world. As an operating foundation, we work on issues directly or with strategic partners from the business, government, and nonprofit sectors to create economic opportunity, improve public health, and inspire civic engagement and service.
Americorps Member – Pulaski County COVID-19 Meal Program
The Clinton Foundation, World Central Kitchen, the City of Little Rock, local school districts, and other organizations began the Pulaski County COVID-19 Meal Program (“PCCMP”) in March 2020 to provide meals to students in Little Rock, Arkansas, whose schools had closed due to the COVID-19 crisis. The program has since been expanded to serve other vulnerable individuals in Pulaski County experiencing food insecurity during the COVID-19 pandemic.
Meals for the PCCPM are prepared, packaged, and sorted for delivery at the Clinton Presidential Center (“CPC”) in Little Rock, Arkansas by volunteers and CPC staff before being distributed through a network of food trucks, meal distribution partners, and volunteers.
PCCPM partners have implemented strict health and safety protocols at CPC for all staff and volunteers to help minimize the risk of COVID-19 transmission.
