National Support
What We Do
One solution, two essential needs: basic incomes + hunger relief

Before Covid 19, 1 in 6 American children did not know where their next meal was coming from. Critical to their food security were the volunteers, non-profits and school programs that feed them everyday. COVID 19 was a breaking point: already at-risk populations were furloughed, schools closed, volunteer and hunger relief demand began to surge. We began Get Shift Done on March 14th and within days, we were on the ground connecting shift workers, supporters and non-profits to deliver essential support all while providing basic incomes and food security for affected children and families. We are expanding our initiative in new cities and regions across the U.S. to help activate and stabilize local communities and economies.

Who We Are
We are people that know food helping people that need food.
Our Impact
We bring stability to families and economies.
