[February 21, 2019, Kittery, ME] — For the second consecutive year, rather than offer discounted holiday pricing, Good To-Go’s DoBetter campaign invited customers to join the brand in giving back. By donating one meal for every two purchased on their website, Good To-Go was able to send 768 meal portions to Team Rubicon. Much of the campaign’s success was attributed to customers opting to “DoBetter” and donate their entire order to Team Rubicon’s network of volunteers. The donated meals will allow volunteers working on the ground to refuel with a delicious, healthy meal.

“Good To-Go’s clean ingredients for quick and healthy meals are a great addition to Team Rubicon’s international teams when they deploy,” said Brian Meagher, Strategic Partnerships Officer at Team Rubicon. “Good To-Go stepped up and donated over 750 meal portions to support our response efforts to the ever-growing number of disasters worldwide—ensuring our volunteers don’t have to choose between healthy and quick.”

Team Rubicon unites the skills and experiences of military veterans with first responders to rapidly provide relief to communities in need after a natural disaster. Since their founding in 2010, Team Rubicon has responded to more than 320 disasters around the world. This year alone, Team Rubicon has launched disaster response operations in Newport, RI and King County, WA for winter storm response; Elsinore, CA for flood response; and has continued its Hurricane Michael recovery efforts with operations in Bay County, FL and Albany, GA. Additionally, the organization still has home rebuild operations running in Houston, TX and Collier County, FL in response to Hurricanes Harvey and Irma. 

“We were so pumped after last year’s successful DoBetter effort (donating meals to hurricane relief efforts in Puerto Rico), that we couldn’t wait to select another impactful and relevant organization to work with this year,” said Good To-Go co-founder, David Koorits. “Providing Team Rubicon’s first responders with lightweight, calorie-dense, and satisfying nourishment while they’re pushing their limits to serve others is a great way for us to be able to contribute.”
