Your support and donations are still needed. Here at Local 4 we’ve been doing our best to help local restaurants and essential workers during the COVID-19 crisis. Our Food 4 Frontline program has collected generous donations from people in our community that already total more than $250,000.

And thanks to that outpouring, more than 21,000 thousand of meals have been delivered to local healthcare, frontline and essential workers. The donations go to the local restaurants making and delivering the food, so that we can help them through this difficult time, too.

Want to help local restaurants and feed frontline workers? DONATE HERE.

In past weeks we’ve coordinated with hospitals and our food partners in order to feed workers who sometimes don’t even think about their own meals while they’re risking their lives for others.
