Help Feed Our Healthcare Heroes

We are Montclair, NJ, residents who depend upon (and are related to) the staff of Mountainside Hospital.

Today, the doctors, nurses, techs, security, maintenance and other staff are working very long hours in the Emergency Room, ICU and other areas to help the rest of us through this pandemic.

When we called to ask how we might help them, we learned that they would hugely appreciate food.

So we joined forces with Florey Cruz-Cerpa, Mountainside’s Community Health Manager; many local restaurants, delis and caterers, and a wide range of friends and supporters to send them meals. 

Florey helps identify which teams need what food at what hour, and we arrange deliveries of individually wrapped meals and sandwiches, which we pay for with the funds so generously donated.

At any given time, there are 200 clinicians and 200 other staff on site. We are doing our very best to feed as many of them as we can, for as long as we can. 

Please consider contributing whatever you can to this effort. You will be making an important difference in the lives of our healthcare workers and our local businesses. 

If you have someone in particular in mind when you donate, please remember to leave their name out of your donation text and/or comment, out of respect for their privacy. 

If you would like to help feed the staff at Mountainside Hospital, the best thing you can do is donate to this fund and we will build your generosity into the hospital's upcoming meal schedule. Please don't just send or show up with food -- there are strict restrictions on what the hospital can and can't accept, and we are working very closely with them to feed as many people for as long as we can. If you'd like to know more, please contact us at  [email redacted].
