Since SIP, we've scaled back our in person service and deliveries which means we have the ability and resources to transport food directly to local hospitals that have an urgent need to feed their staff who are working around the clock. Since putting feelers out there in the community, we have received several requests from doctors, nurses, hospitals, clinics & regional centers to help feed the front line workers during this epidemic. We've already forged partnerships with several local restaurants and business such as The Melt, Tony's Slice House, Kinders BBQ & Best Coast Burritos. The local restaurants and hospitals willing to partner with Global Office to help feed our front line workers keeps growing daily.
Here's just one of the emails we've received from a local hospital with feedback on how needed these meals are at this time:
"...As a Covid Floor nurse, we have been seeing and saving ample individuals coming in for Covid. Although we are happy about this, it does take increased work hours & hard work leading to empty stomachs. It's hard to grab food for lunch as 1. There is no time and 2. everything around us is closed.
We heard you are helping to support healthcare workers through food. We would love for you to donate if you are able to. Anything helps."
Messages like this have motivated myself, Steve and Ken to do anything we can to help support our front line workers and also help support local businesses.
We have an immediate need to feed over 2500 front line workers and a modest donation of $5 -$10 will provide one meal to a front line worker and also support our local restaurants whose businesses are suffering right now.
