Feed the Front Line Chicago!

COVID 19 Resources

For up to date and accurate information about COVID safety, visit the CDC or WHO websites.

***A HUGE thank you to everyone who has donated via this Go Fund Me Page.  Since we are now part of an official 501c3 tax-exempt organization - Feed the Front Line - this page is no longer accepting donations.  Donations can continue to be made through our website at www.ftflchicago .org.  We hope you continue to donate, spread the word about our organization, and follow our progress!***

Our Chicagoland community needs you!

Frontline workers are putting themselves at risk every day to keep our community safe.  Join us in expressing our immense gratitude for their sacrifices by supporting local businesses to Feed the Front Line

How does it work?

You make a donation to us via this Go Fund Me page or our Venmo account.  Imagine the $10 you would spend on an Italian beef sandwich at Portillo's, on a cold beer at happy hour, or on your morning coffee...donate that money to us, and we'll make sure it gets to frontline workers who need it!

We make large food orders with generous tips at various local restaurants and deliver the food to Chicagoland hospitals,  COVID-19 testing centers,  doctor’s offices, and fire stations to support the workers who are taking tremendous risks to be on the front lines saving lives and caring for those we love.  

Donations to this fund support our community in two important ways:
1.   Provide meals directly to personnel on the front line of the COVID-19 epidemic.
2.   Support local, family-owned restaurants, bakeries, and cafes who are facing unprecedented economic challenges.

How can I donate?

Donations are accepted through the following platforms. Any amount will make a huge difference in supporting our community!

If possible, please donate first through our Venmo account (easier access to cash liquidity) : @ftflchicago or through this Go Fund Me page.  If you would like to write a check or make a large, tax-deductible donation, please contact us directly at [email redacted].

During this time of deep uncertainty, it is more important than ever that we come together as a community to show love and support for one another.  If you have the means, please consider donating.

For any questions, press inquiries, or to get involved, please email us at [email redacted].
