UnitedHealth Group Leads Meal-Prep Effort for Twin Cities Residents in Need

Thousands of Twin Cities families will have access to free and healthy food, as UnitedHealth Group (NYSE: UNH) leads an effort to create and provide 21,000 meals each week, for the next eight-plus weeks. Within days, employees of Compass Group began assembling meals at UnitedHealth Group’s Optum headquarters in Eden Prairie, Minn. "During this unprecedented public health emergency, getting a healthy meal will increasingly become a core need for many Minnesotans," said Brett Edelson, CEO, UnitedHealthcare of Minnesota. Second Harvest Heartland, a partner in this effort, through its newly created Minnesota Central Kitchen initiative, says three out of every four people they serve are working families, and that they are seeing a dramatic spike in need. UnitedHealth Group, which is covering the approximately $1 million cost of the food and wages for the Compass Group employees, expects the effort to continue for at least eight weeks.
