Feed the Frontline El Paso, a clinician meal-support program, has raised more than $66,000 in donations while providing more than 5,000 meals to medical professionals in need.
A supporting organization of the El Paso Community Foundation, Feed the Frontline El Paso uses donations to purchase and deliver meals from local, financially challenged restaurants to feed area hospital staff free of charge.
To date, the program has supported more than 50 locally owned restaurants, many of which are family-owned businesses that have been serving El Paso for several decades.
Officials share that the organization continues to make a lasting emotional impact on doctors, nurses, and support staff throughout the El Paso community who are affected as coronavirus numbers grow.
To further expand the help, the organization is asking community members to suggest healthcare units or restaurants in need. Suggestions can be emailed to email@example.com.
