Feed Our Medics
We know that our healthcare workers are stretched to their limit with long shifts being extended for hours, their colleagues off sick and and triple the amount of patients per shift than is usual. Our hospitalisation rate is like a war time crisis and our healthcare workers are stretched in their call of duty to help patients at their most vulnerable. We think a nutritious meal and an encouraging note can help our healthcare heroes through their shifts.
Since March 2020 we have been delivering food to exhausted covid wards, E.D. units, hospitals and testing centres across Greater Sydney during all 3 waves of this pandemic - all to support our exhausted health care workers and at the same time supporting local cafes and restaurants who are also seeing hard times. We've delivered more than 2,000 meals and notes of support in 2 years through donations like yours.
We are a 100% tax deductible, registered charity that wants to support nurses through this healthcare crisis - because they are sacrificing so much for us.
If you donate to our 100% tax deductible charity, for $10 per meal we give the medics in most urgent need a decent, nutritious lunch or dinner, as well as boosting their morale with a note of support.
You might be able to gift 5 healthcare workers dinner, or just 1 - every bit helps!!
The organisers donate their free time to screen local cafés for covid-safe infection control food preparation and organise them to provide a healthy, filling meal for lunch or dinner to the most overworked ICU's, Covid Wards and Emergency Departments across Sydney. Zero admin costs!
We have helped: Prince Of Wales, Royal Prince Alfred, St Vinnies, Northern Beaches Hospital, Liverpool Hospital, Fairfield Hospital, Bankstown Hospital, Nepean Hospital, Westmead Hospital, St George Hospital, Royal North Shore Hospital, Mona Vale Critical Care Unit, Blacktown Hospital, Campbelltown Hospital, as well as testing centres that have healthcare workers at high risk of exposure and also in PPE for 10+ hours.
For you we:
• talk with NSW health about where the greatest need is based on current ICU figures
• talk with the Fundraising Departments of the Local Health Districts so we get clearance to safely deliver our food
• coordinate individual hospital departments for shift quantity, delivery times and contactless handover of the meals and notes.
• liaise with the restaurant/cafe food partners about their covid safe clearances and best menu.
• It's a lot of work - that we are willing to do free.
• WE NEED YOUR HELP PAYING FOR THE MEALS
100% of funds go to feed the medics who have extended their support to the community again and again. It's 100% tax deductible. Please help!
