HelpKitchen is generously sponsored by Jeff and Erica Lawson. Jeff and Erica realized that COVID-19 was going to put immense pressure on the food security system, and decided to spin up HelpKitchen. Thanks to their generous donations, they've sponsored meals in San Francisco and Detroit since launch in April 2020.
Help Kitchen was founded by Eric Ries - Eric is the founder and CEO of the Long-Term Stock Exchange and the author of the bestselling The Lean Startup. He's also well known for his roles in other COVID-19 relief work related to PPE and school closures.
