While the region’s industries have shifted business models following coronavirus (COVID-19) orders, local startups have done the same, and then some.
Picnk, a Dayton meal prep startup, has become a key community player and donated more than 1,700 meals locally. Founder William Foster said the initiative started simply, then grew within hours.
“I had a friend ask if she could donate money to pay for some meals,” Foster explained. “I put this news on Facebook and it just blew up.”
