ROANOKE, Va. – The first round of Food for Frontline is complete!
We began accepting donations last Friday for our new initiative and already hundreds of people have given to feed local essential workers.
As of 4 p.m. Wednesday, we’ve collected $15,010 from 162 donations. That’s an average of $92.65 per donation!
On Wednesday, the first batch of meals went to Roanoke Fire-EMS employees.
“We definitely really appreciate it,” said firefigher/EMT Troy Mann.
Farmburguesa co-owners handed off the lunches bought with your donations for the Food for Frontline initiative.
Every dollar given goes to a local restaurant for meals to be delivered to our essential works.
It's an initiative that feeds “frontliners” for free, while helping keep restaurant employees on the books.
