FLAG of NYC (front line appreciation group)

FLAG (Front Line Appreciation Group) was created in Chatham and Madison, New Jersey to help feed the hard working medical professionals, firefighters, EMTs, police officers and other emergency personnel on the front line COVID-19 pandemic, while providing vital support to local restaurants within their community.

The movement is quickly growing, already spawning over 100 chapters – including FLAG of NYC! To date, FLAG chapters have served over 150,000 meals and pumped over $1,000,000 back into the local economy, with more meals scheduled nationwide.


Our mission is twofold:  SUPPORT OUR HEALTHCARE WORKERS with nourishing meals and community outreach, and KEEP LOCAL RESTAURANTS IN BUSINESS during the economic downturn.

A $10 donation feeds a front line worker. Meals for entire units can be sponsored for $200 / $300 / $500 / $1000.

100% of funds raised underwrite the costs of meals being donated to hospitals.
