Meals 4 Meds

***UPDATE*** First, I am so grateful to everyone who has donated to this little project. I know that it's not saving the world, but I hope that we can create a sense of community and shared purpose even in our own strange little bubbles. My contact at Texas Health hospital has shared some feedback with me and she says that people have told her they are "crying happy tears," and so grateful for this gesture. 

I have secured two Fort Worth restaurants who have agreed to provide meals for workers at Texas Health hospital. My goal is to provide a meal for every worker at the hospital - 100 at 7pm and 150 at 7am. It's certainly possible, but I will need more funds in order to do this. Any additional shares or promotion you can do would be greatly appreciated. THANK YOU ALL! We're in this together!! 

Medical personnel are on the front lines of the fight against the COVID19 pandemic. They put themselves at great personal risk and are working long, physically and psychologically-demanding hours to help those affected. Hospital workers around the country are already experiencing the additional strain, with makeshift hospitals being set up in fields and dormitories, and hospitals in DFW are already beginning to feel the strain as they prepare to treat an influx of patients. 

This campaign seeks to serve medical workers as well as local small business owners by paying locally-owned restaurants to prepare nutritious, easy-to-eat box meals to deliver to hospitals. Money raised will be given directly to local restaurants, thereby serving the needs of the community and expressing gratitude to doctors, nurses, and other medical staff fighting the pandemic.
