Feed our Frontline & Save our SF Restaurants

Every day, but even more so today, the nurses on the front lines of the coronavirus are true superheroes. And we love our local restaurants and want them to survive this crisis, too. This effort combines both. All funds donated through this campaign will be used to buy a San Francisco nurse a gift card to a local restaurant.

Here’s how you can participate:

• Donate any amount — 100% of your contribution will go toward the purchase of restaurant gift cards. Gift cards will be bought in equal number at San Francisco restaurants offering curbside pick-up . The money raised will go first to nurses in the Medical ICU, Emergency Department, the Pediatric Intensive Care Unit and the COVID units.

• Make a card! All gift cards will be delivered along with a handmade card to show our gratitude for their service and courage. Drop off or send them by mail to Shawna Gohel, FTFLSF 1592 Union Street #473 SF CA 94123. Share photos of notes or letters with #FeedTheFrontLineSF #NursesAreSuperheroes 

Why $20,000? There are approximately 400 nurses in active service today at Kaiser SF and CPMC. Our goal is to provide each one of them with a $50 gift card - enough for one meal - to a local restaurant. 20k should get us to that goal and if we surpass, we'll expand to UCSF!

In order to quickly help our local nurses and give much needed monetary support to local restaurants, the deadline to contribute is May 8th. We are trying to get to 400 gift cards so every nurse  gets a card and a note.
