San Francisco's Off the Grid was forced to cut 256 employees after tech giant Google ended a catering contract, the food company confirmed Monday. Off the Grid provided food truck catering and logistics services for Google's Bay Area campuses, according to the San Francisco Business Times that first reported the story. "Unfortunately, Google ended our contract in mid-February, which was certainly disappointing as we've been incredibly proud of the work we've done supporting their community and our working relationship," Off the Grid's founder and CEO Matt Cohen said in a statement. "We immediately provided all impacted employees with two months of paid notice for them to look for other opportunities, and have been working diligently to support placement of them into new opportunities with Google's new service provider."
