Hunger at Home evolves model in wake of COVID-19

When Ewell Sterner brought Hunger at Home to the Bay Area in 2016, the nonprofit’s primary mission was food waste recovery — picking up the unused meals from stadiums, hotels and banquet centers and getting them to nonprofits that fed the hungry. When COVID-19 hit, and those sources largely went dark, Sterner and COO Dinari Brown started feeding people directly, enlisting a team of chefs and hospitality workers to provide thousands of meals every day to the hungry.

Now, the nonprofit is pivoting again with two new programs: a catering service called Hunger at Home Full Circle and Hunger at Home Connects, which provides hospitality and kitchen training to community members and clients of its nonprofit partners.
