Home Cooked Meals For Home Spun Heroes
Front Line Family Meals Boston is a community supported initiative to give back to our front-line medical workers. We hope you will share this pursuit with us.
What We're Doing
Front Line Family Meals (FLFM) provides free home-cooked dinners for our nurses, respiratory therapists and other front-line healthcare workers, who are caring for Covid-19 patients. Many are working up to 100 hours a week, stepping up to roles they never previously played and bravely dealing with uncertainty during this trying time. A lot of this is done at the expense of self care. We know that most want to spend what little time they have at home with the family, instead of cooking.
At the end of their evening shift, on their way home, each front line worker will receive an individually-packed home-cooked meal for 4 to 6 people. We will start with providing 30 family dinners a day, 3 days a week to bring home at the end of the day.
We are donating our kitchen spaces, startup, planning, labor and delivery efforts, but hope for your help with cost of food. We estimate that the weekly food costs are $950-1000. Any funds left over at the end of the pandemic will be donated to the Greater Boston Food Bank.
