Feed the Frontlines TO

Let’s give Toronto’s Intensive Care Unit (ICU) hospital teams a booster shot during the pandemic’s 4th wave, in appreciation for their ongoing dedication to saving the lives of those seriously ill with COVID-19! Please join us in our one-month "addendum" campaign!
 
Feed the Frontlines TO started at the very beginning of the pandemic in March 2020, with the aim to support shuttered local restaurants with meal orders that were delivered to frontline staff across Toronto.  We also provided meals to individuals and families facing pandemic-related food insecurity.
 
We operated for 15 months – over that time we delivered 75,000 delicious local restaurant meals - 30,000 to frontline workers, 45,000 to people facing food insecurity. Helped 17 wonderful local restaurants to weather the pandemic. Got 45 restaurant staff brought back to work. Hired 4 women experiencing pandemic-related job loss to deliver meals to people in their communities. Worked with 50+ volunteers. And raised over $800,000 in service of the above.
 
We didn’t think we’d be needed again. But the duration of this pandemic, emergence of the Delta variant, continued pressure on Toronto’s ICUs, and the summer protests at hospitals, have left hospital teams tired, beleaguered, and facing yet another pandemic winter. 
 
We’d like to give them a booster shot of caring – to let them know that Torontonians are still here, still care, and still want them to be well-fed and nourished with the spirit of community. 
 
Our goal is to raise $50,000 over the next month – enough to deliver a wonderful meal to every ICU and Emergency Department team in the city. Help us help support Toronto's local restaurants and our city's healthcare staff, social service agencies, and vulnerable communities facing food insecurity with ONE donation. 
 
Note:
All organizers of this campaign are volunteers, and none are employed by the restaurants providing, or the health and social services organizations receiving, the donated meals.

All funds are used to purchase high-quality and individually-packed meals directly from our restaurant partners and deliver them to recipients at hospitals, social service centres, community hubs, and individual and family homes. All meals are prepared, packaged, and delivered with the utmost care and in adherence with all food safety requirements.
