A message from the CEO

As the world acts in response to COVID-19, the importance of the cold chain logistics industry has never been clearer. Check out this video message from our President & CEO, Greg Lehmkuhl, to learn how Lineage team members are stepping up to meet the needs of our customers and to help feed the world.

Our Goal: 100 Million Meals

There’s a crisis on our hands – and we need to do something. Food insecurity is surging across the world due to the economic fallout from COVID-19. According to the International Labour Organization, approximately 400 million full-time jobs were lost around the globe in 2020. In the United States, food banks are seeing 30%-40% increases in people seeking assistance.

That is why we launched the "Share A Meal" campaign in March 2020 to help provide 100 million meals to those in need. We partnered with global influencers, like-minded individuals and food chain leaders to help connect families with safe, quality food.

We are proud to announce that as a result of providing 100+ million meals to those in need, we are now a Feeding America Visionary Partner!
