Serving Those Who Serve Us:

Send Free Meals to Our Front Line Against COVID-19

Thanks For Recommending First Responders!

Looking Out for Our Front Line Against COVID-19

We all play an important role in curbing the spread of COVID-19. Many of us do our part by staying in our homes and working remotely, but others are on the front lines, responding to crises and treating those who need care. 

Our team wants to show how much we appreciate their efforts, and we want you to join us. 

Through “Serving Those Who Serve Us,” we’re purchasing meals from local restaurants to give to first responders, healthcare providers, and other essential workers. 

As we all do our part to slow the spread of COVID-19, our team wants to thank everyone who helped us show appreciation to the front line of first responders and support for local restaurants through this campaign.

Unfortunately, this campaign is at an end and no new first responder recommendations are being accepted at this time.

We’re Buying Meals for Essential Workers

We’ve already started purchasing meals for those hard at work keeping things going in the fight against COVID-19, and we need your help finding other local groups that could benefit. Do you know a fire department that could use a free meal, or workers at a critical care unit who need a mid-day boost? 

Click the button below to tell us about your recommendation, and your group will be added to our list for consideration.

Want to Suggest a Restaurant?

We are also accepting recommendations for restaurants from which we will purchase the meals we will be supplying to front line workers. If you’d like to recommend a restaurant for us to use, please click the button below. 

Everyone on the front line deserves our deepest gratitude for the work they’re doing. We want to keep this campaign going for as long as we can, and your input is invaluable. To keep this campaign sustainable, and so that we can help as many groups as possible, preference will be given to groups with 50 or fewer workers.

Please share this with your friends, family, and community to spread the word so we can discover more groups who deserve a free meal.

We’ll keep everyone posted on our “Serving Those Who Serve Us” campaign on Facebook, so stay tuned for updates!
