A World Of Change

Ever since the start of the COVID-19 pandemic, an infinite amount of things have changed. Access to everyone’s work, hobbies, and time with others has been altered in one way or another. This is all due to safety protocols and restrictions regarding COVID-19.

Apart from the live music and entertainment industry, the restaurant industry has also been hit extremely hard. Regulations for these establishments seem to change every few months. Take-out only suddenly switches to allow indoor dining at a limited capacity, then switches right back to take-out only. These employees rely on a high volume of customers and tips to pay their bills. However, many waiters, bartenders, hosts, and more have been unemployed or receiving minimal pay since March.

Additionally, medical workers have become completely mentally and physically drained while dealing with the strain that COVID-19 has brought upon them. Frontline workers include anyone directly dealing with COVID-19 patients, emergency room and intensive care unit workers, anyone in emergency care services, and so many more. These heroes have been working extremely long hours and sacrificed seeing family or friends. All of the work that they are putting in is to save the lives of countless individuals.

Feeding The Frontlines

This is where Nathan Schweid and Aviva Sonenreich come in. They have joined forces to provide safe restaurant made meals to frontline workers that need them the most. This helps both local restaurants in the Denver area and hospital workers.

Feed The Frontlines – Denver was originally started by Biscuits and Berries Catering. The overall goal is to raise money to feed Colorado’s frontline medical workers. The money raised allows for safe meals to be produced in a commercial kitchen space with great ingredients and resources. If meals aren’t made in the catering space, Feed The Frontlines – Denver teams up with various favorite local restaurants to provide the meals.

Currently, indoor dining is closed in Denver. Local restaurants are struggling to make ends meet by having to rely on takeout orders as well as outdoor dining if they have adequate resources. Feed The Frontlines – Denver is able to help these restaurants financially so that they can stay afloat along with their employees.

So far, Feed The Frontlines – Denver has provided over 1,450 meals at 30 separate hospitals and shelters for first responders. In fact, they had a massively successful Thanksgiving event where countless workers were able to have a tasty Thanksgiving dinner. It is amazing that these people are able to receive healthy meals during their shifts from a physical health standpoint. Furthermore, it greatly benefits their mental health as well. Helping to lift the spirits of these healthcare workers is something so important that everyone can help out with.
