About Feeding Our Frontline

"Watching how this pandemic is affecting caregivers across the country, we wanted to have a program in place that responds to the immediate needs of the frontline hospital workers," said Mary VanMinde, Executive Director of the RSL Foundation. The "Feeding Our Frontline" program raises dollars for hospitals statewide, to provide free meals for Utah caregivers.

After surveying hospitals, we found each had a different approach to provide meals for their workers. This program is designed to be adaptable for each hospital. Dollars may be used to open up cafeterias for free to workers and/or to provide a take home meal and/or to be used to order takeout from their local restaurants. "We built this program to help in this unprecedented crisis and we like the trickle-down effect that could help local restaurants,"" said VanMinde. "Hopefully this program will give our incredible frontline caregivers the ability to keep their focus on healthcare while we provide flexible options for food. Keeping them fed and safe is of huge importance.”
