Feeding the Frontlines is a special St. Luke’s initiative meant to show support for our healthcare heroes, while also helping the local restaurant community. Monetary gifts to this initiative will be used to purchase gift cards for our frontline healthcare workers caring for COVID-19 patients. Our hope is to make their life a little easier at the end of a long shift, so they can grab a pre-cooked meal for their family. The network is already supplying our frontline healthcare workers with free meals during their shift, so this initiative helps eliminate the risk of community spread when unsafe deliveries are made to campuses.
When making a monetary gift online, please select “Feeding the Frontlines” from the dropdown menu below. If you are mailing a check (please see instructions above), please indicate that your gift is intended to support "St. Luke’s Feeding the Frontlines."
You can also purchase gift cards directly from your favorite restaurant and mail them to St. Luke’s (click here for more information).
