Support the Front Line in the Battle Against Covid-19
Brave nurses at hospitals across the country are tirelessly facing down fear of infection to save the lives of Covid-19 patients. Not only are they working overtime to battle the current crisis, but with the hospitals on lockdown, they have also become patients' primary source of comfort. With short breaks and 12+ hour shifts, helping them recharge and not have to worry about waiting in line for access to a grocery store or figure out nearby meal options is one way we can show our support!
A Focus on the Overnight Shift
With several awesome national programs focusing on massive daytime meal programs, our project is uniquely focused on serving overnight and weekend nursing units specifically assigned to treating Covid-19 patients, ensuring that whenever their breaks occur there will be ready-to-eat meals waiting for them. At the same time, we are able to support local restaurants by purchasing bulk takeout meals in their less-busy hours.
Our goal is to serve hospitals dealing with Covid-19 patient spikes throughout the country. We started at one hospital in Los Angeles and are currently supporting hospitals across SoCal, Michigan, Philadelphia, New York, and Southern Florida.
We are partnered with top rated national 501c3 charity Random Acts, which provides operational support as well as facilitates 100% tax-deductible donations. They recently featured our all-volunteer project on their news page with this spotlight article.
Postmates helped make our launch possible by donating our first two weeks of deliveries and setting us up with a non-profit account going forward as we scale nationally. They have also been invaluable in introducing us to local and national restaurant partners who are eager to contribute to our campaign. Please email us at firstname.lastname@example.org if you are interested in discussing ways to contribute as a corporate partner.
Sweetgreen was our first restaurant partner, donating our first week's worth of meals to UCLA Santa Monica Medical Center through their Impact Outpost fund and continue to be a great partner. Fat Sal's Deli was our first partner for Ronald Reagan UCLA Medical Center.
Help Us Grow
Our restaurant partners help us do more with less by providing boxed meals at $10 per meal (down from $15 initially!) Please help us spread the word by sharing our campaign, following our Instagram @feedheronurses, and giving what you can. $20 covers the two meals for one nurse over their twelve-hour shift. $200 covers one meal break for an entire unit. $600 covers most of the nurses working with Covid-19 patients for one meal break on a given shift. $1200 covers both meals for one shift, and $2400 covers a night shift's meals at a single hospital for two weeks!
