Nyack Nourishes’ mission is to provide meals for the healthcare heroes working at Montefiore Nyack Hospital and the Nyack Community Ambulance Corps during the Covid 19 crisis while supporting local Nyack restaurants in need.
Nyack Nourishes realizes that our community is more than just a group of people living in a town along the Hudson. Our community is a group of people who know that they can lean on each other when times are tough. No one in our community needs more support and nourishment at this moment than the healthcare workers on the front line and our small businesses.
Many of our friends, neighbors and family members make up those medical workers at Montefiore Nyack Hospital and the Nyack Community Ambulance Corps who are putting their lives at risk in the fight against the coronavirus outbreak. They are working extra shifts and long days to focus on caring for those in our community – rarely stopping to eat or think about a meal.
Nyack Nourishes and local Nyack restaurants want to help them fight on!
With your support, we could provide 50 individually boxed, full course meals per day to our healthcare heroes - while at the same time bolster the hard-working people working at the restaurants in Nyack that we all treasure.
This initiative is being headed up by a handful of local residents working with the support of the Nyack Chamber of Commerce , Nyack restaurants, Montefiore Nyack Hospital and the Nyack Community Ambulance Corp . All donations go straight to the local Nyack restaurants providing these meals.
Please continue to spread the word and check back to this page for updates. Feel free to contact Annie Hekker Weiss or Susan Wilmink through the GoFundMe platform if you have any questions or would like to volunteer. You can also contact us through the Nyack Nourishes website.
Thank you for the generous donations! In the fortunate event that we get beyond this crisis and have additional funds remaining, we will evenly distribute those donations among the participating restaurants to use for a celebration with the hospital, EMTs and the community at large. Stay tuned!
Again, thank you so much for your support during this difficult time.
“We don't heal in isolation, but in community.”

Participating restaurants include:
Casa del Sol
Olde Village Inne
We can only accommodate ten restaurants at this time but we know that many amazing restaurants in Nyack are rolling up their sleeves to feed healthcare workers and they need your help as well. If you don't see your favorite Nyack restaurant listed, please contact them directly and we can assist them with the guidelines needed to serve individual bulk meals to the hospital and EMT workers.
Please note that the hospital cannot accept “family style” shared dishes.
