Meals to Feed Our Front Line Fighting COVID-19

UPDATE: Campaign Closed on June 16th. Thank you for your generosity, Anacortes!!!


The aim of Anacortes Strong is to show appreciation to our front line workers during this COVID-19 pandemic while also supporting local restaurants. Funds collected will provide a nourishing meal and demonstrate our community’s gratitude for their unwavering dedication to our town.

Meals will be purchased from local Anacortes restaurants, to be delivered to front line workers primarily at Island Hospital, Anacortes Fire and Anacortes Police. We estimate there are approximately 125 workers to feed on any given day at an average cost of $15 per meal. We aim to reach as many of these heroes once per week for as long as the pandemic lasts, with the added benefit of supporting our local restaurants and food suppliers.

We're proud to have the support of the Anacortes Chamber of Commerce. Our goal is to expand your generosity and encouragement to more essential workers including grocery staff and local care facilities.  

Please show your support today…any amount is meaningful! This is a practical way our community can encourage and show gratitude to those protecting and caring for our loved ones.
