Feeding the Front Lines: Meals for Healthcare Pros

Hello friends, family (and generous strangers!),

As you already know, COVID-19 has placed an undue burden on our overworked healthcare community as they selflessly care for us and our loved ones. In addition, many local restaurants in our communities have had to close their doors to the public, placing a tremendous financial burden on their business.

In an attempt to connect the dots and help in some small way, our family has set up a two-pronged charity to 1) Provide relief & nourishment to our medical community on the front lines, and 2) Support local restaurants that need our help to make it through this difficult time. 

How are we doing this? We’re coordinating large scale breakfast, lunch and dinner deliveries to our local hospitals, all ordered from local restaurants. Our goal of $1,750 will feed 25 healthcare workers one meal per day for a week. 

If you’d like to get involved, there are 4 ways we could really use your help:

1. Share this GoFundMe on FB, IG, and Twitter! This small action can raise awareness and help us achieve our goal. 

2. We already have 5 hospitals on-boarded, but we need contacts at more hospitals in order to initiate deliveries at different locations. If you’re a medical professional, or know any hospital staff that we can get in contact with, please fill out this confidential Google form.

3. If you have a favorite restaurant / caterer that can provide large order meals, please provide the name & location in this confidential Google form.

4. Donate! We’ve launched this GoFundMe page to collect donations from anyone who would like to support this cause. We are all volunteers so 100% of your donation goes to help support our local hospital workers and restaurants. Check back often to see which hospitals / restaurants your donations are supporting!

Anything helps during these unprecedented times. Just $10 feeds one healthcare worker one meal. Let’s do what we can to support one another & our communities, and we will all get through it together. Be well, and stay safe! <3

PS - My brother-in-law, Ryan Smith, is coordinating the food orders, deliveries, and payment so I have made him beneficiary for this GoFundMe campaign.
