Frontline Foods for frontline workers

The pandemic has had a devastating effect on the restaurant industry and the simple goal at Frontline Foods RI is to pay local restaurants to make fresh meals and deliver them to healthcare workers on the frontline of the COVID-19 pandemic. They do this using 100% of the tax-deductible donations we receive from the community.

This week Viola Davis and the cast of How to Get Away with Murder generously offered to sponsor lunch for the frontline workers at Hasbro Children’s Hospital. The donated funds went directly to Matunuck Oyster Bar.

Viola plans to post on her social channels about these meals being donated. They also may challenge the cast of another popular show to donate in support of Frontline Foods.

Rhode Island’s brave front-line staff is working around the clock to save lives, and many Rhode Island restaurants are struggling to stay afloat.

You can help support your favorite local spot and provide meals to our heroic front-line workers by donating to Frontline Foods RI.

The chapter of Frontline Foods is just getting started. They are partnered with World Central Kitchen, a 501c3 organization, which uses the power of food to strengthen communities in times of crisis and beyond.

Two issues brought about by the COVID-19 pandemic could be tackled through a single program: supporting restaurants and their businesses while matching them with hospitals and other frontline groups in need of meals. Their efforts this bring back business and keep kitchens open, while providing workers on the frontlines the fuel they need.

Their partner, the World Central Kitchen (WCK) is a tax-exempt, registered 501(c)(3) charitable organization led by chef José Andrés, to scale the reach of the program. All donations made in connection with this project are tax-deductible and funds raised by Frontline Foods go directly to restaurants in communities across the country.
