Starkist is matching the first $50,000 in donations to help during the COVID-19 crisis.

The Match Promise

Starkist® is partnering with Feed the Children to help those who are struggling during the COVID-19 crisis. These challenging times are impacting the lives of families and children across the nation, and our partnership is dedicated to bridging that gap. We’ve always been dedicated to helping those in need and feeding the hungry, and in these unprecedented times, that help is needed more than ever.

Right now, you can double your impact to put food on the plates of children going without school meals, and help provide life’s essentials to those who are out of work, under lockdown, and in self-quarantine.

For more than 10 years, Starkist® has been a valued partner of Feed the Children. They have contributed more than 145 million dollars in tuna product help to children and families across the U.S. and an additional estimated $400,000 for disaster and emergency response efforts.

What are the symptoms of coronavirus?

Symptoms can include fever, cough and shortness of breath. In more severe cases, infection can cause pneumonia or breathing difficulties. More rarely, the disease can be fatal.

These symptoms are similar to the flu (influenza) or the common cold, which are a lot more common than COVID-19. This is why testing is required to confirm if someone has COVID-19. It’s important to remember that key prevention measures are the same – frequent hand washing, and respiratory hygiene (cover your cough or sneeze with a flexed elbow or tissue, then throw away the tissue into a closed bin). Also, there is a vaccine for the flu – so remember to keep yourself and your child up to date with vaccinations.

What is the best way to wash hands properly?

Step 1: Wet hands with running water

Step 2: Apply enough soap to cover wet hands

Step 3: Scrub all surfaces of the hands – including back of hands, between fingers and under nails – for at least 20 seconds.

Step 4: Rinse thoroughly with running water

Step 5: Dry hands with a clean cloth or single-use towel

Wash your hands often, especially before eating; after blowing your nose, coughing, or sneezing; and going to the bathroom.

If soap and water are not readily available, use an alcohol-based hand sanitizer with at least 60% alcohol. Always wash hands with soap and water, if hands are visibly dirty.
