Healthcare workers have always been on the front line in protecting our community. Today, as a result of COVID-19, these selfless professionals are working multi-day shifts with little or no time for meals, trips home, or to the grocery store. To top things off, hospital cafeterias are becoming more limited every day as items like salad bars and buffets are removed and pre-packaged products are the only options for breakfast, lunch and dinner.
Meanwhile, Colorado restaurant owners have been ordered to close their dining rooms for at least the next eight weeks in an effort to slow community spread of the virus. This puts an extreme strain on already slim margins. Some restaurants have closed their doors and some are choosing to adopt a take-out and delivery model. Very few restaurants, if any, will be profitable enough to sustain in the long term. Unfortunately, it’s the best restaurants can do to keep a few staff members employed and continue to make ends meet.
Feeling helpless? Here’s the good news: we have a way to help! And it can all be done while continuing to practice social distancing.
We have the chance to help both valuable segments of our community in one fell swoop!
We’ll send food regularly to our hard-working healthcare providers and staff using donated funds from the generous people of Colorado. It’s that simple.
We'll be working with many different restaurants with equally different styles of food. On average, your $100 donation will serve 12 people. 100% of this fund will be paid to independently-owned local restaurants to provide deliveries to our hardworking medical teams.
