Now, more than ever, we need to show up as Texas Strong and help San Antonio, our big city with a small-town feel.
Our hospitality and restaurant industry has been hit very hard, and hurt some of Bexar County's most vulnerable workers -- hourly staff such as cooks, dishwashers, and food servers.
By helping restaurants stay open, we keep people working, and keep the food supply chain healthy. On top of that, the meals restaurants cook and deliver are free to hard-working frontline workers. These heroes in scrubs and uniforms are here for us every day, every shift. Let's show them some love by making sure they have tasty and wholesome meals to keep them going.
Frontline Foods was established in response to COVID-19, and has partnered with World Central Kitchen, a 501(c)3 nonprofit organization established by humanitarian chef Jose Andres. The San Antonio chapter launched in early April and is led by a small team of volunteers.
Your tax-deductible donation goes directly to restaurants preparing meals for essential workers. This is a win-win for Bexar County restaurant workers and frontline workers.
Thanks to you and your generosity, you've supported workers at four local restaurants and fed 425 University Health System staff.
- May 1, Los Barrios Restaurant, 100 meals, evening and night shift
- May 6, National Nurses' Day, The Good Kind, 125 meals, day shift
- May 15, 225 Urban Smoke, 100 meals, evening and night shift
- May 22, Sushihana, 100 meals, evening and night shift (Intensive Care Unit and Ambulatory Care Unit staff working on two hospital floor)
