Fine Dine Front Lines is a non profit organization coming to the immediate aide of suffering restaurants and front line workers. Initially we were focusing on medical staff in cancer related fields well as immediate areas of need within healthcare facilities and began growing from there.
Pivoting the "Give" mentality by providing new and potentially consistent revenue streams to restaurateurs. Donations generate purchase orders for 100+ meals prepared by kitchens that could use the financial boost. Allows restaurants to produce work, generate revenue and contribute to the community through high quality meals volunteers deliver at no charge to front line workers.
How this started:
In 2019 my daughter was diagnosed with Non Hodgkins Lymphoma and I with AML Leukemia. Simultaneously. 16 months of chemotherapy had us living in hospitals being nursed back to life by front line workers and their hospitals. We wanted to give back and decided to feed them lunch. In 4 weeks I delivered 1400 meals out of my car with personal finances and the gracious support of a few. The demand was clear and our focus is direct.
As of today I've relapsed with my Leukemia and am hopefully headed to bone marrow transplant so I'm in hospital most the time literally on the front lines. This motivates me to continue the mission which we can do based on donations and community partnerships.
Our website will be functional soon with inclusive fundraising options. We have provided a couple informational pages in the meantime that show the efforts.
