Fuel the fight against COVID-19

Our army of volunteers raises funds from the community to support local restaurants and feed heroes working on the frontlines.
Let's keep MN strong and work together.

We have pivoted our mission to also include frontline people in need who are helping rebuild our community during this challenging time.

$100- feeds a team of 5-10

DONORS

Will my donation be tax-deductible? 
Yes! World Central Kitchen is a registered 501(c)(3). They will collect donations on our behalf in an account specifically designated for the Twin Cities Metro Area. 

 

Does Frontline Foods keep any of my donations?
No. We are 100% volunteer-run.

 

Can I designate my donation to pay for a meal from a specific restaurant, or to benefit a specific Minneapolis/ St. Paul/ Twin Cities frontline site?
No. To be as efficient as possible, we aren’t able to do this. But we can assure you that 100% of your money is used to support local Twin Cities Metro Area restaurants and Twin Cities Metro Area frontline people. 

 

My company offers a gift match benefit. How do I make sure my matching funds go to Twin Cities Chapter? 
Matching gifts should be sent to World Central Kitchen and should reference “For credit to the Frontline Foods TWIN CITIES account”. Please note that corporate matching dollars often take three or more months to pay out. This is a fast-moving situation—if corporate match dollars arrive after the COVID crisis has eased up, the funds will be used to support the national Frontline Foods network to prepare for future crisis response efforts. 

 

I've seen a lot of GoFundMe pages and other efforts in the Twin Cities- are you working together or are those separate?

We are trying to coordinate our efforts with these initiatives already in place so we can support (not compete with) existing groups. There's already so much great work going on! We've connected with many groups about providing additional coverage, helping out where they need and supplying those that haven't been supported yet (MN Hero Snack Pack, Feeding the Frontline MN, Meals for Medics, Feed a Nurse MN, Hearts & Hogs for Heroes, and more).

 

RESTAURANTS

How are restaurants selected to participate? 

Since launching, we've heard from many restaurants and catering businesses who are eager to help. Our goal is to work with as many of you as our funding allows.

 

Are you reaching out to women and minority-owned businesses?

Yes! We are eager to bring resources to women and minority-owned businesses. We’re intentionally working to get the word out to these communities, but we can’t do it alone. Please share, post, and forward this site to as many restaurants as you can.
