Jane's Kitchen for COVID-19 Frontliners

Welcome to the Jane's Kitchen Fundraiser!

All funds will be used to purchase supplies for providing delicious, home-cooked meals to people on the frontline of the COVID-19 pandemic.

So far, we have reached out to several local healthcare providers and first responder departments, who are all REALLY EXCITED about free food.

As a general estimate, a $10 donation will feed 3-5 healthcare workers, support and cleaning staff, police officers, or firefighters (yes, I am that good at cooking delicious meals on a budget!) Anyone who donates over $30 will receive a free handmade art item of my choice--just make sure I have your address!

Also, at this time donated funds are coming in faster than I can cook. More than funding, I really need access to a larger kitchen. If you have access to a commercial kitchen that is currently not in use (such as at a closed church, school, or restaurant), PLEASE let me know if you would be willing to let me use it a few times a week.

As always, if you or someone you know is an essential worker who could use a free hot meal, contact me!  I am using the term "frontline" inclusively--do you work in social services, cleaning, postal/delivery, or another industry where COVID-19 has made your job more stressful and/or your hours longer? Hit me up for some free food at your workplace!

Check www.janetsai.com for details, updates, progress, and accountability reports.

Also- the $1500 goal is completely arbitrary. I will feed as many people I can as long as I have funding!
