Our Team Members Take Feeding the World Personally

September 28, 2021

As part of Hunger Action Month, we’re celebrating our team members across the globe who have gone above and beyond to help those in need. From Vietnam to the United Kingdom and from Australia to the United States, our Lineage family is always working to diminish food insecurity in the communities we live and work in.

Thinking globally and acting locally.

As global leaders in temperature-controlled logistics, we have the means and a responsibility to help our local communities. “Starting with the top, everyone at Lineage is committed to meeting the needs of everyone they encounter,” said Audreyana McBeth, Lineage Human Resources Business Partner in Charleston, South Carolina. “Seeing people in my own community go hungry is enough to inspire me to combat food insecurity. The numbers are mind-blowing, but when it’s close to home, it puts it all in perspective."

McBeth is not the only member of our Lineage family who identifies with the concept of “servant leadership” — a commitment to serving both employees and their greater surroundings — in this way.  

Larry Show, our General Manager in Rincon, Georgia has also prioritized his community and helping with food insecurity on a daily basis. “Servant leadership cannot be accomplished without compassion for those you work and live with daily,” he explained. “Community service in every area where we operate is part of living the Lineage values.”

Show and his colleagues have made an impact in their community by hosting food drives and taking the initiative to volunteer in distributing food every week. Like many sites in our network, they have also worked with customers to donate product that may have been disposed of otherwise, eliminating food waste while feeding those in need.
