Starting with a single tweet from our founder, Bethany Mandel, at the end of March 2020, this idea has blossomed into a national effort. What began as a way to pay for a single hospital's kosher-keeping staffs' meals has mobilized into volunteers, donors, restaurants, and communities working together across this country to help our heroes in healthcare. What began in under 140 characters has resonated as a strong message around the world.
As of April 21, we have raised over $75,000 (including private donations and partner support) to serve 6,340 frontline healthcare workers 9,306 meals in 178 hospitals units across the country.
We are here to support our heroes in healthcare. For those of you reading our updates, sharing our social media posts, and/or donating, please continue and get ready to help us expand our effort.
Thank you to the healthcare workers working long shifts, in tough conditions, under physical and emotional stress. We hope that the coming holiday of Passover will bring with it clarity of purpose, unity of community, compassion from our maker, and a speedy end to this plague upon all the land.
One last thing – every day, we here at Team Kosher19 get to see pictures and notes our heroes send back to us after a much needed meal. Here are some of them from around the country in the past few days:
