Food for the Front Line movement delivers meals to industries hit hardest by COVID-19 pandemic

Posted: Updated:

The Food for the Front Line is a movement helping some of the industries hit hardest by the coronavirus pandemic.

Organizer Nicole Straight says the movement is like a support triangle.

CORONAVIRUS TRACKER - Cases in the tri-state area

"I did a drop-off to Norwalk ICU Monday and this lovely nurse came out and she said that she'd been there since Wednesday," says Straight. "And it's just heartbreaking. They are so overworked and I am just grateful and think all the people that are contributing are grateful to support our local restaurants because people aren't making any money and people need to support their families."

The impact of coronavirus around the world

 

Straight hopes all communities take this win-win system and run with it.

"Support your local restaurants," says Straight. "Keep people in the community employed, support your first responders and ER and ICU staff."

Those helped by Straight say they really appreciate the donations.
