The Thanks-Giving Foundation has launched an initiative to feed healthcare workers and first responders called “Serving Up Gratitude”. We think it is also an important element of this effort that we provide support to the restaurants and the restaurant workers that are such a vital part of our community.
We are purchasing individually packaged grab-n-go meals in minimums of 50 each, and we typically order at least one day in advance. The meals will need to be delivered to a location to be designated at the time of order. You of course may choose to not accept the order if you can’t manage the delivery as requested. We will pay $10 per meal (including delivery and tip), and it is up to each individual restaurant as to what to include. I’m counting on our restaurant partners to provide a hearty meal that truly expresses the community’s gratitude for the difficult and dangerous work being undertaken by the healthcare workers and first responders. We will pay by credit card on the day of service, or the following day by check.
It goes without saying that you must take extra measures to provide our local heroes with a well prepared, safe and healthy meal free of contaminates, etc. As previously mentioned, each meal must be individually packaged, and must include the necessary cutlery, napkins, etc. We will provide informational sheets to include with each meal, and you are welcome to insert a menu promoting your restaurant.
We hope to have the resources to provide orders to a great many restaurants. If you would like to join us in expressing gratitude to the front line workers in this battle against COVID-19, please provide the requested information in the form below. While we can not be sure that we will be able to purchase meals from all restaurants that enroll in the program, we will do our best to distribute the business.
Thanks, and please stay well!
