Food for Heroes

"Please join us in supporting local health care workers! Located in between two hospitals and multiple medical facilities, Via Sofia's proudly serves medical professionals regularly. I would like to treat our medical professionals to one of their favorite lunches for free to thank them for all that they do everyday." -Zach, Via Sofia's General Manager (1125 1st Ave)

Our local heroes have bigger things to worry about than packing a lunch. They give their time, energy, and love to our community, and we want to give back!

Donations on this page will be used to send food vouchers to Cedar Rapids healthcare workers and emergency services. Each Wednesday, we will bring vouchers to a different office so their staff can buy lunch, dinner, or whatever they need to make their day a little easier. 

THIS WEEK'S DONATION TO FEED: Eastern Iowa Health Center

“One cannot think well, love well, sleep well, if one has not dined well.” – Virginia Woolf


In our first week, we raised $265 to go towards catered meals for St. Luke's ICU staff! 

After our second week, we brought gift certificates for the staff at the MercyCare Respiratory Clinic! 
Week 3 benefited The Community Free Clinic Staff & Volunteers.
