Our Programs

The Healthcare Industry

High-reliability organizations such as hospitals and medical centers are in a particularly difficult situation in that they must, at all costs, care for their patients, staff, doctors, and even visitors, especially in a crisis. 

Secure Foods works with emergency and disaster planners who help their organizations anticipate long-term needs for fundamental food requirements to see them through potential disasters, and maintain quality nutrition for the duration.

Schools and University Campuses

Schools and other educational institutions are in a specific risk profile in areas of the country that have been seeing more frequent climate-related disasters. At the university level, there is no national mandate for extended food supply either in state-run nor private institutions. 

Younger students will need significant, trained, and sustained guidance from adult supervisors who can get them to safety and take care of their well-being.

National Retailers

Retail stores that have a national presence are particularly well-suited as an immediate resource to care for the public at-large if disaster strikes. 

When the first line of public preparedness, our grocery stores have been emptied and are left with bare shelves, many thousands of retail locations around the country can be there, ready to serve their client-base in need, with minimal advanced notice.

Fundraising, Storm Shelters, Food Banks

Secure Foods is partnering with national distributors to supply the nation's food banks in advance of need. 

The CovId-19 Pandemic has triggered lock-downs in various parts of the country and world, and this has had a significant financial toll, not seen since the Great Depression, on individuals and families. 

With our fundraising efforts, food is donated nationwide to add relief to the thousands of people struggling to make ends meet.

National Industrial Supply 

America functions on a foundation of people who get up every day. Essential workers are the backbone of America.

 

In areas of high risk to hurricanes, floods, fires, snowstorms, and other events that threaten just-in-time delivery, industrial suppliers are being called upon to supply essential businesses and those who are at-risk of losing their employees with shelf-stable food at the ready for their people. 

Responsible businesses nationwide need assistance to care for and keep their teams strong and ready when needed.

Hotels and the Travel Industry

Hurricane Katrina or Miami floods taught us that trucks may not get to us in time to avert a food and water supply crisis. 

The travel industry is responsible for its patrons and wants to be able to support their clientele no matter what comes their way. For example, hotels are often identified as a safe shelter-in-place location and if people show up to ride out an emergency, the facility must be ready to take care of them with food and water especially in disaster-prone areas. Just-in-time deliveries are not a reliable plan for emergencies if roads and bridges are flooded or damaged.

International Supply

The need for business continuity is not limited to the United States. In a world where flooding is becoming commonplace, food insecurity is at a global high in modern history and organizations worldwide find that taking care of their employees beyond a mere salary is not only smart business but creates unexpected goodwill throughout the organization. Leaders have peace-of-mind knowing that no matter the disaster, their business will continue on and the investment they have made in each other is time well-spent.

Local and Global Charities

According to the U.N., each day 25,000 people including more than 10,000 children, die from hunger and related causes. Some 854 million people worldwide are estimated to be undernourished, and high food prices may drive another 100 million into poverty and hunger.

These numbers are going up each and every day and has been accelerating through the Covid-19 pandemic. 

We are available to coordinate with fundraising organizations to assist with their efforts to help people end starvation. 

As a direct response, Secure Foods offers help to Feeding America and SBP (St. Bernard Project) in annual giving campaigns.
