Local meat distributor delivers food as residents are forced to stay home
Food distributors are finding new ways to run during the coronavirus outbreak.
Master Purveyors usually delivers 275,000 pounds of meat throughout the state. About 85% of their business has been cut because of changes made during the virus outbreak.
The business that has been open for more than six decades is now trying to make it as easy as possible to get their product and deliver it.
Owner Mark Solasz says they are trying to moderate their pricing because it is expensive product, but they're still delivering to butcher stores.
"Food and Hunts Points Market is an essential service," Solasz says. "We can't stop the food chain. When police are out there watching what's going on, so do the people who supply the food."
They are currently taking orders through their website or by phone.
