COVID-19 Meals For Frontliners

The ability to stay home and have a job is a privilege but for many of our healthcare frontliners, it would be a luxury.  Everyone who works in the hospital are the frontliners who go to work every day and some even stay-at-work to help care for our friends and families to fight an unfamiliar disease.  They include but not limited to:

Nurses
Doctors
Cleaning Staff
Security Guards
Medical Assistants, etc 

And they say, the least we could do for them is to stay home but what if we could do more?   Maybe put a little smile on their very anxious selves by writing them a simple note of encouragement or maybe send them treats or better feed them healthy meals that will help them get through those long days at work?   One thing is for sure, good food makes everything better.

In collaboration with our colleagues at Stanford University and with guidance from a couple of our Stanford Healthcare nurses’ friends, we thought of cheering up our frontliners and lightening their burdens by providing them snacks or meals.  Join us in showing our gratitude, we need your support!

We have partnered with  the following food trucks and restaurants in the area to help them sustain their business in this difficult time.
          - Fish Wabo Taco 
          - Falafel and Things    
          - Antoniks BBQ  

We have also received donations from the following vendors:
          - Tea It Up Menlo Park 
          - Yessis Cake Creations Redwood City 

We are going to be sending meals to units at the following hospitals and may expand later depending on the support that we receive.
          - Stanford Hospital
          - Lucile Packard Children's Hospital
          - Kaiser Permanente Hospital in Fremont, CA
          - St. Rose Hospital in Hayward, CA
          - Valley Medical Center in San Jose, CA
 
If you have cheery notes to share with our frontliners, we’d be happy to forward it to them on your behalf! 

Looking forward to your support and if you know of any other restaurants and food trucks that’d be willing to partner with us, please let us know!

Thank you in advance and hope you are all safe at home.
