Bridging The Gap
Risking her own health to deliver food orders, she hopes to save others and her home too

Risking her own health to deliver food orders, she hopes to save others  and her home too

Her fiance lost a trucking position in November for health reasons, and the coronavirus closures this month caused her 16-year-old daughter to lose her job at Panera Bread. The family has one car.

So, Hunt works seven days a week, delivering groceries from the Walmart Supercenter in West York, despite an asthma condition that puts her at higher risk for complications if she would contract the coronavirus.

According to the Centers for Disease Control, "people with asthma may be at higher risk of getting very sick from COVID-19." The virus can cause an asthma attack, and possibly lead to pneumonia and acute respiratory disease.

The other people

Those "other people" are her customers the elderly and disabled who can't or shouldn't be in grocery stores because of the risks they also face. They are her motivation.

Hunt, from Dover, Pennsylvania, had been working 12-hour days before the virus reached the U.S.

She is considered an independent contractor, not a Walmart employee, so she chooses when and how much she will work. Walmart's limited store hours during this crisis give her only eight hours a day to deliver groceries, 11 a.m.-7 p.m.
