Goal

Feeding Heroes is an initiative by Parenthood Together, 

a global parenting community.


Our fundraising goal to start off with is $50,000. Our goal is to provide a minimum of 5000+ meals to the frontlines while supporting as many small businesses as we can reach. We'd like to start mobilizing as soon as possible. The more funds we raise, the more we can expand into other regions and cover more ground. We hope to break into other community service departments-- first responders & testing centers, etc. 




WHAT IS TO GOAL OF THE FEEDING HEROES PROGRAM?

1. 

To encourage and support our community's brave heroes as they stand at the frontlines to fight the COVID-19 Pandemic, by providing them with nutritious, delicious meals. 


2. 

To support small businesses in industries such as the food industry, who have been affected by the economic downturn caused by the COVID-19 Pandemic. We strive to stimulate businesses so that they can continue to provide jobs & income to workers. 


3. 

To promote community involvement, unity & togetherness during the COVID-19 Pandemic. Together we will conquer.

FAQ


What areas will you be serving?

We will begin with Long Island, Queens, New Jersey, Bronx, Brooklyn and Westchester communities. Please go to parenthoodtogether.com to suggest hospitals & businesses who currently need us to help. Even if you live in an area outside of these regions, please consider donating to this cause. If this pandemic has taught us anything, it is that we are all connected and that county, state, country borders do not separate us. 


What types of meals will be provided to hospital staff?

We have strict procedures and standards. Packaging and contents of the meals must meet sanitary & safety standards. We also want to make sure these meals are easily handled and there is minimal risk of spillage. Meals will be packaged into microwaveable containers, delivered warm or at room temperature, able to be consumed immediately, or at a later time. We will also portion control with each hospital to ensure that there is minimal waste, but that we feed every hungry staff member who works in the units.  Most of our meals will be delicious and nutritious, containing one protein, one vegetable and one carb.


How are you helping the restaurants?

We are often seeking food from award winning restaurants, requesting a menu that is made from high quality ingredients. We are not requesting restaurants donate their food and/or provide any discounts, to ensure that they are able to sustain their businesses & continue to contribute in this way. 

However, if there are food and beverage providers that can donate snacks & beverages, we are looking for a few partners to help us source donations so please send us an email: [email protected]


How do the meal costs break down?

Costs per meal will vary depending on the restaurant partner, but we approximate that it will cost $20 per meal. $7-15 per meal per person + $3 per meal to go directly to the restaurant workers + $2/meal for delivery & transportation costs.


Can you come and service our hospital?

If it were up to us, we would be in every hospital in the country helping out. We are continuing to expand our hospital partner list. Please inquire with us by sending us a message here.
